I have been on both UA and WN MAX-8 aircraft. All had barely a perceptible flow of cool air from the individual vent. It’s a HUGE downside to this aircraft in my opinion.

I'm 6' tall and notice this on any 737 domestic F seat whether it's the old CO style blue DTV seats, or the one with the marble pop out tray on them (I haven't flown a Max yet). I find the window on 737s to be really low.

11A no airflow

BT on a 4.5 hour flight vs. no airflow? I’ll take no BT, this is ridiculous. Also, when can we start talking about the lack of recline?

I like the Bluetooth feature to connect my earbuds to IFE.
