Last year Delta announced routes where they’ll operate the 757-200 with Business Elite 2×2 flat-bed configuration. The plan is to have all of these routes serviced by the new Delta Transcon 757-200 planes with Business Elite Flat-Beds by this summer. So far I’ve had mixed success finding the 757-200 with flat-beds on certain routes.

The routes were these planes are planned were noted as JFK-LAX, JFK-SFO and JFK-SEA.

So far the 757-200 flights from JFK to LAX are all designated as the 757-200 with the new flat-bed seating. It’s pretty easy to tell by looking at the seat maps of the 757-200’s operating on this route. You’ll notice the 757-200 First Class seat map has a 2×2 configuration, and the seats are tilted at a slight angle.

But it’s been hit or miss for me on the JFK-SEA route where the old cradle seats are still found. Same thing with the JFK to SFO flight, cradle seats are found. You can tell by the seat map here as well, the First Class seat map has a 2×2 configuration, but the seats are NOT tilted towards an angle.

Bottom Line

If you want to be sure you’ll fly in the new Delta 757-200 Business Elite flat-bed seats, you might want to stick with the JFK-LAX route. The JFK-SFO and JFK-SEA routes are scheduled to be modified later this year.

  1. “If you want to be sure you’ll fly in the new Delta 757-200 Business Elite flat-bed seats, you might want to stick with the JFK-LAX route.” If you want to fly to SFO, you are going to fly to SFO and not connect via LAX because of a seating different.

  2. Hi Billy – “If you want to fly to SFO, you are going to fly to SFO and not connect via LAX because of a seating different….” unless you want to fly in the new seats or grab an in-out burger during your layover in LAX 🙂

  3. Hi John – I haven’t flown in them yet, but they look really comfortable for a Transcon flight. Will report back when I’ve flown them. Not sure if I’d select an aisle or window given the windows do not have direct aisle access.

  4. FYI, 757s JFK-LAX are NOT ALL upgraded. Just went on DL422 this past Sunday, 4/12 on a 757 and it was an old cabin with typical domestic first class seats. Intentionally went down to JFK to try the service out. Very disappointed. Even the flight attendant was embarrassed. However, there was a shiny new “Delta One” sticker at the front of the cabin. Avoid.
