Which rows on 737-700 have extra oxygen mask

Hello,

Trying to find out which rows on United flight using the 737-700 have extra oxygen mask. Seatguru didnt have this information.

Thanks.

I could be wrong, but I think every group of seats has one extra oxygen mask on all FAA compliant airliners (except maybe exit rows where children aren't allowed). For a 737 in coach that means 4 masks for every 3 seats. Which is why you can only have one lap child per row on each side of the aisle. If only certain rows had extra masks, I'd think they would have very specific seating requirements for lap children.

Well on one of my flights, which is a regional jet, there are only like 7 different rows that have an extra mask. United site didnt specify which, but seatguru gave me that info. So i dont think United, at least on the booking site will prevent us from booking a row without an extra mask. Maybe you are right though that the 737-700 has one for every 3 and thats why they didnt list this on seatguru. Just wish united would confirm. Thanks.

A little googling suggests that most mainline planes in the US do have an extra mask for each bank of seats, but there are some exceptions, particularly for regional aircraft. I'd try calling the airline if you're concerned, although I really don't think it's likely to be an issue.

Here's a good old thread (in which I participated!) that gives a little more info:

Oxygen mask for lap baby?
