2A seems to be a preferred choice in First.

1A doesn't have a cutout so might not be as good for tall people & seems to be colder.

7C/D seems to be preferred choice for E+. Often blocked until T24, but then seem to be available.

7A/B also good, although 7B may get bumped during boarding because it's in aisle.

I really prefer 2A. Good access to overheads on opposite side and under seat storage.

I'm in 2A in two weeks. I more or dislike any row 1 for a variety of physical and mental reasons depending on plane.

+1 - another vote for 2A - plus in winter it's warmer - a plus for those who live up north like I do where in 1A you often can't feel your legs after boarding...

I've flown the 175 fairly often since it was introduced. I prefer any of the A seats, with 1A being lowest on the list. I like under seat storage though. But they're all good seats. The 175 has been a welcome addition IMO.

In the future, I'll probably take 2A. I've had two equipment swaps so far (one from a 170 to a 175, one the other way), and I figure that in case of a downgauge, Rows 3-4 get downgraded.
I'm pretty short at 5'8", so leg room in the first row of any plane is never an issue for me. I should probably have qualified my opinion with this information.

2A in first.

I haven't found a favorite E+ seat yet. I was 7D last week and it was pretty nice.

2 or 3A in First.

I'm really looking forward to seeing more of these jets in the lineup.

Just completed first flight on this aircraft and it's pretty nice. I would take the single F seat over any F seat on a 739. 1A has more space to the bulkhead than the 739 (but no cutout for the feet, so can see why anyone tall might not like it). My full size fully packed Kirkland rollaboard just fit in the overhead. I did like how quickly they can turn this aircraft and how quickly it boards.

There was PDE but it was kind of buggy.

IIRC, from the one time I've been in Y on an E175, Row 7 (or at least 7C/7D) have terrific legroom. Better than F.

Surprised how cold I was in 1A. Didn't like not being able to stretch out either. Based on other's comments, may home in on 2A or 4A in the future.

It does get cold in the front of these little jets, and tends to be a sauna in the back. I am always too hot on planes, so I love it!

I've flown twice in 2D and it was OK. I have 2A this Saturday and looking forward to it. Wondering about the main cabin. Typically if I'm in E+ it's because I have a pet with me, and therefore can't sit in a bulkhead or exit row, so I would typically choose the first non-bulkhead row of E+
I think that's row 8 on this plane. Any experiences there?

Will a NORMAL (as in fits fine in the sizer) roller fit in the bins?

I had no problem with mine in First.

I used the under-seat storage when in E+ so cannot comment.

Yes, just barely. Note that at least in F, there's a full size bin only on the 2 seat side of the aisle, and that fills up pretty fast. This is an aircraft where boarding in the first half of G1 actually matters.
