The Delta Embraer 175 is a Delta Air Lines plane; however, it is controlled by Skywest. The Embraer 175 is a small plane carrying only 76 passengers and operates mainly for domestic travel.
Various amenities keep you comfortable and entertained aboard the Delta Embraer 175. You can stream your favorite movies and shows online, send emails and keep yourself engaged with social media since you can connect to the internet while on board. The internet connectivity on Delta Air Lines is available through Gogo service.
As you board the Embraer 175, you can rest assured of getting a good flight since steady internet service is available for laptops and phones. However, the connection is only available when the plane reaches 10,000ft cruising altitude.
Like the internet, the food service of the Embraer 175 is superb. The food available on the airline depends on the time of the day, flight length, and route. Also, regardless of the compartment on the E175 Delta, you will be entitled to various complimentary snacks.
For travels longer than 900 miles, passengers in the First compartment will get an excellent meal. Passengers in the Economy cabin have access to sandwiches, snack boxes, wraps, and other foods for the same distance. However, these items come with a charge.
There are numerous perks of the First and Comfort+ cabins; little wonder their higher cost. For instance, passengers in these cabins get complimentary non-alcoholic drinks, beer, and spirits. To get these items in the Economy compartment, you will have to purchase them.
There is another version of the Embraer 175— the E175-SCs. This version features six fewer seats than the Embraer 175. The food service in this aircraft is also similar to the other version. For instance, alcoholic drinks are free for First cabin passengers but can only be purchased in the Economy compartment. Additionally, depending on the flight time, Economy passengers get small snacks. First passengers get full food meals for flushes over 900 miles.

Seat map key
The Embraer 175 Delta First class is designed to ensure the comfort of passengers. This cabin comprises 12 seats arranged in a 1-2 layout.
Some regular First cabin passengers avoid the first-row seats — 1A, 1C, and 1D. These seats, though not uncomfortable, are not the best because of their proximity to the galley and lavatory.
Also, the tray tables in the seats’ armrests make them immovable, reducing their width. Aside from these disadvantages, these seats have more legroom than others.
The other seats of the Embraer 175 First class Delta are standard seats with recliners. Seat 4C can be discomforting due to its location — you can get bumped by the flight crew or other passengers. All the seats in the cabin do not have a TV and power for passengers to plug their gadgets.
The Delta Embraer 175 Comfort Plus cabin comprises 12 seats arranged in a 2-2 configuration. These seats are directly behind the First cabin. Like in the First cabin, there are no TVs and power outlets where passengers can plug their devices.
The best seats in the Comfort cabin of the Embraer RJ-175 Delta Airline are 5A, 5C, and 5D. Though these seats are standard, they come with extra leg space; hence passengers will feel more comfortable on them. The extra legroom in the seats is due to their position in front of the bulkhead. The drawback of these seats is the tray table in their armrest, which reduces their width and makes the armrest immovable.
Seat 5B is the bad seat in the Comfort cabin. While it has the perks of the 5ACD seats, it has more disadvantages. For instance, a passenger in the seat can get bumped by other passengers or flight crew; also, it does not have floor storage during landing or takeoff.
The Economy cabin of the Embraer 175 (enhanced winglets) Delta comprises 52 seats arranged in a 2-2 configuration. When in this cabin, avoid the AD seats. These seats are the worst due to their misaligned windows. Seats 8ABCD and 9ABCD are special seats reserved for Delta Medallion members. However, like other AD seats, 8AD and 9AD have misaligned windows.
The last row seats, comprising 20ABCD, could be better. They are too close to the galley and lavatory. Therefore, they are usually crowded with passengers wanting to use the restroom.

The Delta Embraer 175 First Class cabin is similar to the other version of the airline. It has 12 seats arranged in a 1-2 layout. All the seats in this cabin are standard seats with no exceptional amenities. The cabin does not have a television or power outlet where passengers can plug their devices.
The first-row seats in the Delta E175 First Class are standard bulkhead seats. This row comprises 1ACD with extra legroom even though they are the only slightly-undesirable seats in the cabin. These seats are too close to the lavatory and galley; passengers find them uncomfortable.
Unlike the other version of the Delta Embraer 175, this version has 20 seats in the Comfort cabin. These seats are arranged in a 2-2 configuration. The most desirable seats in this cabin are the first row seats — 5ABCD. However, a passenger in seat 5B may find it discomforting because the flight crew or other passengers may bump into them easily.
The first-row seats of the Comfort cabin of the Delta E175 are more comfortable due to their extra leg space. Aside from the legroom, there is no other difference between the first row and other seats in the cabin; there is no unique feature aside from the internet connectivity allowed in all cabins.
The Economy cabin of the Delta E175 aircraft is located behind the Comfort cabin. This cabin is nearly as comfortable as the others, albeit with some differences. The cabin has fewer seats than the Economy. It comprises 38 seats arranged in a 2-2 configuration.
All the seats in the Embraer 175 Delta cabin are standard Economy seats that most passengers are used to. However, some are less comfortable than others. For instance, passengers in the last row — seats 19AB and 18CD — are not ideal seats since they are too close to the galley and lavatory. Other passengers crowd the area, causing discomfort for passengers in their seats. Seats 18AB are also not suitable due to the restroom and galley close by. Seat 18C is is problematic because of its proximity to the aisle; other passengers and flight staff may often collide with the person in the seat.
