The Boeing 737-700 represents the very low-end of AirTransat's fleet. AirTransat does not offer "club class" on this type of aircraft (although "Option Plus" is available).
- Seat width and pitch are standard for this style of plane (narrow in both cases)--tall and/or heavyset people will feel very uncomfortable in the regular economy seats.
- There are no power port outlets, and there were no video screens on this flight.
Due to the "Option Plus" upgrade, I was able to choose my seat: exit row, 13A. The advantage being that you have a lot of extra legroom because the seat in front of you has been removed. However, it does get very COLD sitting here, so be sure to bring a blanket or sweater with you. Another disadvantage is that the seatback does not recline, and the tray table is in the armrest--which makes the seat marginally narrower then the regular economy seats. Windows are also misaligned.
All in all, the AirTransat Boeing 737-800 is beginning to show its age, and should be retired from AirTransat's fleet.
