I have to admit it, I’m pretty excited about Delta’s recent news they will roll out new Business Elite seats starting in the spring of 2014 to their “transcon” service operated by 757 planes.

I’ve flown their existing 757, 767, 777 and A330 Business Elite products on domestic routes in the past. They are all good products, especially when upgraded to Business Elite from domestic coach class thanks in large part to earning Delta Platinum status the easy way through the Delta Reserve card or the Delta Platinum SkyMiles card.


But what really sets this Business Elite seat apart from the existing 757 Business Elite seat is the 180 flat bed.


Do you see the new drink holders arm rests all decked out with new covering?

Business Elite Seats

  • 16 seats in a 2 x 2 configuration
  • Seats are staggered and slightly angled toward the windows to optimize privacy and personal space
  • Seat width is 20.2” which can be increased to 22.2” with the armrest stowed
  • 180º fully flat bed (average bed length of 76”)
  • Electronic seat controls with adjustable lumbar support
  • 110v AC in-seat power + USB power
  • Adjustable personal LED reading light
  • 16” Elite Integrated Smart Monitors in BusinessElite
  • Onboard Wi-Fi for purchase

Bottom Line

I’m excited about the addition of flat bed seats to the Delta transcon service operated by 757 planes. I have a feeling there is more to come on the transcon news front, and it might have to do with one of the biggest downsides to flying wide body jets on domestic routes…

  1. Now if they would add this type of service NYC to PHX I’d be really ready to fly them on a paid fare.
