New seats on Delta to lie almost flat
Delta Air Lines is adding business-class seats that recline almost flat on all flights from New York to Los Angeles and San Francisco to compete with United Airlines and Virgin America.
Those new seats recline 150 degrees, Delta said Tuesday in a statement. The Atlanta-based carrier also said it added fully flat bed seats in business class on all New York-London flights.
Delta, the world’s largest airline, is making the investment as part of its effort to win passengers in New York, the biggest U.S. market in which no single carrier dominates. The so-called lie-flat seats are prized by business travelers, who generally pay the highest fares and fly more often.
UAL’s United offers lie-flat seats on its first-class service called p.s. connecting New York with Los Angeles and San Francisco, and on many international flights, said Robin Urbanski, a spokeswoman for the Chicago-based carrier. Virgin America, the low-fare carrier partly owned by U.K. billionaire Richard Branson, has seats in business class that recline similarly to Delta’s.
