Boeing 737-900 operated by Alaska Airlines may accommodate 181 passengers in two classes.
First class consists of 4 rows of seats that have 2-2 configuration. The seats of the 1st row have the following disadvantages: close location of the galleys, limited legroom and lack of floor storage during take-off and landing.

All B, C,D and E seats of the economy class have restricted under seat storage and leg space because entertainment equipment is stored there.
Economy class may be conditionally divided in three sections. First section consists of 10 rows of seats. Due to the removed bulkhead between the seats of the first class and the seats of the economy class passengers of the seats of the 6th row will take advantage of extra legroom. As the tray tables are built-in the armrests, the width of these seats is reduced a little.
The only disadvantage of the seat 12A is missing window.
Because of the exit row located behind the seats of the 15th row are less reclining than standard.
The second section of economy class seats has only one row that is located between two exit rows. That is why the seats of the 16th row on the one hand offer extra legroom but on the other have limited recline.
The third and last section of economy class seats has 17 rows of seats. Passengers of the seats of the 17th row will take advantage of extra legroom thanks to the exit row located in front. These seats are considered the best seats o the airplane. However, the headrests of the seats 17A and 17F do no bend or fold.
Passengers tend to gather in the area of the seats 32ABC, 32D and 33DEF causing discomfort to passengers of these seats. Also limited recline of the seats 32ABC and 33DEF makes these seats bad seats.
