Delta reduces how far you can recline…Thank You!

DarthVaderAirplane

The frequent flyers I’ve talked to this week are happy about this announcement.  Most of us want to work during our flights.  I barely have enough room before my fellow passenger infront of me reclines to the full extent on our 60 minute flight to Detroit. Really??  You need to recline the minute we get in the air? I personally think the only time to recline is on a red eye, when everyone else is sleeping.

Starting April 13th, Delta will change all their airbus A320 planes (60+) to reduce the recline of coach seats from 4 inches to 2 and first class from 5.5 to 3.5.  Doesn’t sound like much, but looking at pictures of it online, it should help with the laptop issue.  If this was legroom, we would have an issue….but not the case here.

What are your thoughts? Are you one of those who recline all the time?  Leave your comments below.

  1. I am the anomaly. I usually flew on Sunday evenings so yes recline and nap 😴 On my return flight after a busy week yes recline and nap 💤 I very rarely worked on the plane as that became “my time.” However, I think the majority do it differently so whatever is implemented regarding recline inches will be what it is. Non-business travelers will just have to suck it up and business travelers will get some much needed relief so that can work
