Delta is Reducing Seat Recline on 62 Planes

Airline seats

The change was reported earlier by The Points Guy travel blog.

Delta expects it will take two months to change all of Delta's A320s which includes about 62 planes in the fleet.

The A320s in Delta's lineup generally fly one-to-two-hour routes across North America.

If the recent news that Delta Airlines is the best US airline for customer satisfaction surprised you, or even had you wondering if it was time to take the family into the bunker for the end-times, I have some more news for you.

Instead, the airline says it is focused on protecting customers' personal space and making multitasking easier.

"With the narrow room the airlines give you for your legs, I can't even sit in the normal seats with my legs facing forward. But this is really about more personal space".

For those unaware, Gavankar also portrayed a character in Horizon Zero Dawn , namely Tatai from the Frozen Wilds expansion. It's also not out of the question for her to be involved in writing for the game either.

Delta deny they are trying to fit additional seats on to the aircraft or will save money.

Delta Air Lines will reduce the amount that seats recline on some planes by about 5cm, aiming to preserve the workspace of multitasking business travellers.

Delta says this is just a "test", and that passenger feedback will ultimately determine whether they'll expand the seat reclining reduction to the rest of their fleet or return the seats to their original reclining capability of four and 5.5 inches. Or, at least, Delta doesn't think so.

There are no plans to change the coach recline on global flights, according to The Points Guy.

Instead, it seems to have recognized that travelers on the shorter domestic flights are busy working on laptops or watching TV on their seat-back screens, two activities that are hampered by the person in front of you who suddenly slips into a full recline.

Flights may be more comfortable for passengers, especially those who want to work on their computers, Mayerowitz added.
