Bulkhead or not? AA 737 (MAX) First Class
Hey all, I’ll be flying on AA’s 737 MAX first class (3-hour duration). Which seat is the best? Should I take the bulkhead row? How’s the legroom there? What are the pros and cons?
In case the 737 MAX is still grounded, what about the 737-800? Is there a difference to your opinion above? Thanks!
I think the MAX is still grounded. Regardless, whether the MAX or the -800NG, taking the bulkhead in First is really a personal preference. How tall are you? At 5’9″ I have no problem taking the bulkhead. A little less leg room, but also less crowded. And you can stretch out and rest your feet against bulkhead. Nice to stretch out like that on long flights. But you can’t stow a bag at your feet for takeoff and landing. On red-eyes I like bulkhead windows as I can usually exit without waking the aisle passenger.
