Shhh! Don’t tell anyone this little secret I’m about to share with you. If you do, we’ll have everyone fighting for the same seats. The next time you select a Business Elite seat on a Delta flight configured with the flat-bed seats on a 767, select the seat that will offer you more legroom.
There are only a few seats that offer the additional legroom and if you select them it is sure to help you rest better with a little extra legroom.
So you might have liked that middle seat towards the back of the Business Elite Seat because it felt more private and you didn’t have to worry about any light coming in from the galley. If you select this seat, you’ll have less room to work with for your feet.
Check out the little bulge to the left side of the foot rest area.
What about the window seats towards the middle? Nope, they have the same little bulge to the side of the foot rest area. Just take a look at that light blue bulge to the right side of the foot rest area in this pic.
Now to the secret. Most frequent flyers know this, but I”ll let you in on the secret so you can get the extra room for yourself next time you get an upgrade to Business Elite on a domestic flight configured with international Business Class thanks to earning Delta Platinum status the easy way.
For the best results, select row one. Yes, row one offers extra legroom because there are no seats in front and the extra bulge to the left or right of the foot rest area doesn’t exist. You can see for yourself in the picture below.
The next time you fly on one of Delta’s 767 in Business Elite flat-bed seats, remember this little trick and you’ll have some extra legroom. Now remember, don’t tell anyone our little secret.
Now for another little secret. Does anyone know why the best seat in row one is seat 1A and why frequent flyers in the know, usually sit on the left side of the plane towards the front?
