We’re excited to finally announce that all 7 of the 767-400ERs scheduled for modification to these new flat bed seats are complete and flying! The 76D model flies all our LHR routes – which means that you can depend on it today to/from ATL, DTW and JFK. MSP-LHR starts tomorrow, September 1st. Plus, it’s also flying between JFK – VCE in September.
The initial feedback we’ve received from customers regarding the seat has been overwhelmingly positive. Most importantly, it’s flat, and that’s the best way to sleep. Beyond that, there are no gymnastics required to get to the aisle. Every seat has direct aisle access, which is a real plus especially when everyone is sleeping. If you’re taller than average, be sure to go for a window seat with an extended console, as they provide a whopping 82” in bed length.
We recognize that the tray-table is challenging to get out and put away. Look for the tray-table instruction card, which should be in the seat-pocket in front of you. For the future, Delta is working with the seat’s manufacturer and another outside engineering firm to build an updated and more intuitive table. The challenge is (look closely when you fly) that we have very little space to work with.
Thanks for flying and please let us know what feedback you have!
p.s. If you like flying on a flat bed, be sure to also try out Delta’s 777-200LR. It flies the really long flights – like between ATL – BOM, DXB, JNB, PVG, TLV and our newest route – LAX – SYD
