Delta Secrets – Delta 757 Lie-Flat To Raleigh (RDU)

The new Delta 757-200’s Transcon Business Elite service is on my bucket list. So the other day I started looking at the routes where the 757-200 Transcon Business Elite equipped Jets are being operated. As a result, I came across some routes with unsuspecting equipment that I’ll share here and in the near future.

For example, I came across the Atlanta to Raleigh flight that is operated by a 757 with Lie-Flat Business Elite seating. Not the new Flat-Bed, but good enough for a domestic flight.

Just to double check, I looked at the seat map and sure enough, there were only 4 rows of First Class, which means that this 757 is operating with the old style Business Elite cradle lie-flat seats.

Bottom Line

You never know where you’ll find a nicely equipped Delta Jet with Lie-Flat or Flat-Bed seats. Well, kinda we do, but they do reposition some of these planes quite often. So keep an eye out for these and the new 757-200 Flat-Beds on domestic routes.

  1. These seats aren’t lie-flat; they’re not even close. Also even though the plane may be configured with the cradle seats, the service will NOT be business elite service. You will not get upgraded food/wine; you won’t get an amenity kit; you won’t get Westin bedding, etc.

  2. These are not lie flat. If you look at the row of icons under the First side, the second icon from the right is a recliner, not a bed.
