Delta limiting seat recline on Airbus 320 jets

Delta limiting seat recline on Airbus 320 jets

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

The seats will lose about two inches of reclining space.

Ekrem Dimbiloglu, Delta's director of onboard product and customer experience, told The Points Guy that the reduced recline was an effort to protect the passengers seated behind.

A company rep says the idea is to make flights more comfortable for the people behind each seat, and to make it easier for passengers to view the video screens embedded in the seat backs.

"Being a frequent business flier, my productivity just dies when the person in front of me drops their seat into my lap", aviation security consultant Jeff Price said.

'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.

The A320s generally are used on flights of two hours or less.

'I have to turn them sideways, and it's worse when the seat drops back'. "But this is really about more personal space".

While it may sound like a chance for the airline to stuff another few seats into an already tight aircraft, airline officials promise that's not what they're doing.

There are now no plans to reduce legroom or squeeze in additional seats during the recline change.

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 appears to be trying to strike a balance between those who want a little space to work and those who want to take a short nap'.

There are no plans to change the coach recline on worldwide flights, according to The Points Guy. You might want to make sure you're fully stocked on canned goods, because now, Delta is making yet another move to increase customer satisfaction.
