Puzzling photo: One of the best things about TravelSkills are the comments… readers definitely know what they are talking about. For example, there was some confusion about what type of Delta aircraft was used for this promotional photo that appeared on the blog last week. See below for an explanation:
Reader L. Howell explains it: It is a 757, the model they use primarily on premium JFK east/west flights and sometimes to Europe. You can see the new Biz Elite config forward. What’s confusing is they removed the jump seat and equipment by the left door to make the cabin appear more spacious. And you are correct that there’s one row on the right side with two rather than three seats due to exit door 2-right. There’s only that one row (18) that has 2 seats on just the right side, no seats on the left (left exit door). The next row is 3 across both sides. They ought to use this photo and what it really looks like in the back of Highlights Magazine in the “what’s missing” photo….
