I'm going to be flying Delta this time and when I went to pick my seat, I noticed that one side of the aircraft had 2-seat rows and the other side 3 seats.

Is this unusual, or does Delta use a lot of planes like this? Just wanting to make sure I get the window, and the 2-seat row on an American flight struck me as odd.

The amount of seats in a row depends on the type of airplane. In smaller planes there are less seats and sometimes the number on each side of the aisle varies.

My usual flight on a commuter jet is 2 on one side, 1 on the other. I always try and get the single seat!

I second using Seatguru- love that website!

What everyone else said - the size of the plane, or class you are traveling. First class has two row seats as well.....

Depends on the type of plane. There are all types of combos:
2-2
1-2
1-1
2-3
3-3 most common
2-5-2
3-4-3 etc..

Given your flying Delta I guess your flying on a DC-9 or MD-88 which have 2-3 configs.

In these small planes go for the aisle seat. Between the curvature of the wall and the overhead compartment you may feel a little squeezed.

2-3 is not that small of a plane. 2-2 or 1-2 yes. This is especially true on the CRJ. However it is small either way. I always take a window. Flights are not as fun with out a view.
