Another Domestic Delta Lie-Flat Route For 767

Our site may contain affiliate links. Read Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

I was playing around with an award booking and came across the ability to book a domestic segment in a lie-flat Business Class seat onboard one of Delta’s newly configured 767 airplanes. In the past, I mapped out the routes with dedicated lie-flat service.

Taking a look at those routes, will give you an idea which airports the planes with lie-flat service fly in and out of. If these planes are not being utilized on international flights, Delta operates them on domestic routes to keep them busy or operates them to reposition for an international route from a different city. As a result, we’ve flown and reviewed the lie-flat Business Class domestically in the 777, 757, 767 (old style seats), and A330, but not yet the 747 (Big Sexy).

Hopefully one of you will be able to fly this 767 in lie-flat style on a domestic route.
