Delta’s Dedicated Routes With Lie Flat Business

Have you ever wondered where all Delta’s lie-flat seats are flying? We wonder all the time in hopes of catching an upgrade to lie-flat Business Class (like 777 to LAX or 767 to Atlanta) on one of these internationally configured planes on a domestic route. We recently found out that the red-eye from Seattle to Atlanta is operated by a 767 with the new truly lie-flat Business Class seats.

  1. Hi LC – Glad this is helpful.

    Hi Bobby – It is new and isn’t on all days from what I can see.

    Hi rk – That is a separate post series all together. But to start, we thought we’d share the international departure airports the newly configured planes leave from.

  2. I traveled to Paris in October and was thrilled to find flat bed seats when I was ready to depart from Atlanta!

  3. Hi Babs – I don’t know for sure when they’ll be added to Spain routes on a dedicated basis. But you can keep tabs on the rollout of flat bed seats across the 767-300 fleet through this Flyertalk post:

    Yes, the Paris flights are lie-flat on Delta metal. This really hurts the Air France flight on this route. The AF flight is operated by a 777 with the angled lie-flat seats. Even if AF upgrades this route to A380 (which I don’t think they will) their A380 seats are still angled lie-flat although they are slightly better (IMO) than their 777 angled lie-flat product.

  4. I flew ATL-FCO-ATL on a paid Alitalia FC fare in Aug 2010, it was a code share operated by DL with the staggered lie flat beds.

  5. Hi Tiffany – Although you might find the lie-flat beds on other routes, the above are the current lie-flat routes with “dedicated” lie-flat bed service. For example, currently the ATL-FCO route is operated by a plane with the old style business class seats.

    The “dedicated” routes will likely increase as more lie-flat bed planes come on line.

  6. Delta has the habit of listing one type of plane/seat then changing after you book. I had a flight from ATL-CDG on a plane with lie flat seats, and when I looked at my sky miles account I noticed a flight change. I now have seats on a 767 with sleeper seats. Whatever they are.

  7. Surely DTW- ICN has lie flat beds in business elite like all other delta flights to Asia from Detroit. Especially considering the flight is on a 777

  8. What about ATL to Brussels and or Madrid?
    At this time I am booked ATL to and from these two destinations in October/November 2013 in flat bed seats! If not dedicated, could I lose the flat bed seats?

    Happened on flights from Nice in 2012 . . . Don’t want to lose good seats AGAIN!

  9. You might want to add ATL-BRU to that list, as im seeing it as lie-flat when booking my flights!
