Best 737 Plus Seats?

Does anyone have an opinion on which are the best 737 plus seats? Is the bulkhead row preferable to rows 2 and 3 or is the legroom too restricted?

In my opinion, rows 2 or 3 are preferable to row 1 only because you can store your bag under the seat in front, and the table tray is not in your armrest, which can provide a bit more room widthwise.

I agree with Jono. I'll take 2C or 2D as first choice every time.

I have 2D in my TA profile and I sulk when I don't get it.

I think bulkhead is the worst.

I would generally agree with "not the bulkhead" since the space ahead of you WILL become a de facto waiting area for the lavs when somebody needs to get down the aisle.

Front row. Legroom abounds and the window seat can enter and exit with ease. Overhead storage is not an issue for several reasons - you board first, there's lots of room and you have to have dibs because you don't have underseat.

However, the window on some aircraft is oddly intrusive into your shoulder space but aisle is fine.

The FA on all my Plus flights were good about moving people trying to park in that space while waiting for the biffy into the aisle or back to their seats.

Definitely the bulkhead. More legroom, and I hate people reclining into me. And since I don't carry the kitchen sink on board, having underseat storage is irrelevant.

The only real problem with the bulkhead row is that the little fold-out table can be a bit shaky as a work surface. I usually work on my laptop during flights, and I find the single support leg for the table on bulkhead-row seats makes a more wobbly platform for my laptop than the two-leg, standard fold-down tray. It's better on some aircraft than others, of course. I've had a few where it was so worn I just gave up and sat the computer in my lap. That works, but it's not as comfy (for me) as the standard fold-down table on the row 2/3 seats.

Hah, when we flew to Hawaii not only were the flight attendants themselves standing there too at times, at one point the pilot was as well.

Did my first WestJet flight today. Had 2D in Plus...which is my preferred seat on AC J class. After a 3 hour flight I plan on trying to get the window seat in row 1 next time mainly because it looks to have more legroom and with the window I won't have people and carts continually knocking into me.

And you said nothing, preferring to vent here later. Speak up. Never happened to me.
