Delta to Offer Lie-Flat Seats

Good news for Delta flyers:  The airline announced that it will be the first US carrier to offer fully lie-flat seats beginning in 2008.  Expect to see all of the airline’s 777s and 767s equiped with the new product by 2010 (yes, that’s a while from now).  Assuming they are still in business, you’ll enjoy fully flat beds and, also nice, a seating arrangement where you don’t need to climb over the person next to you to get out of the window seat.  This makes American’s new seat look like a workbench.  Expect Continental and/or United to match sometime soon…

  1. This will not make Delta “first US carrier to offer fully lie-flat seats” — United and American have done so for years in their first class cabins….

  2. Gary is correct. Delta will be the first to offer lie-flat seats in business class. My bad. This is what happens when I write early in the morning.
