This is something to applaud. More comfort for ALL passengers’ categories in Delta’s Boeing 747-400 Aircraft as the company begins to install flat-bed seats in the BusinessElite cabin and new “slim line” in the the Economy cabin, seats that are offering more personal space and individual in-seat entertainment.
Moreover, “each seat comes with a 15.4 inch widescreen video monitor with instant access to more than 1,000 entertainment options – more than any other U.S. carrier – including more than 300 films, 88 hours of television programming, nearly 100 hours of premium programming from HBO and Showtime, 27 video games and more than 5,000 digital music tracks.”.
The new 747 BusinessElite seats are manufactured by Zodiac Aerospace and are approximately 80 inches in length and 20.5 inches wide. These seats will be arranged in a similar layout as the ones in Delta’s 777 fleet – meaning in an angled herringbone layout.
For the economy class, Delta has also some great improvements: the “slim line” seat will provide “customers with up to two inches of additional knee clearance. All seats feature a headrest with adjustable wings, height and tilt, USB power and an industry-leading nine-inch touchscreen featuring personal on-demand entertainment including the same extensive library of entertainment choices as those offered in BusinessElite.”.
More space means more a comfortable journey and I think this is a great thing. What do you think?
