Delta Airlines reduces seats that recline on A320s

By host - alicia-avila
Delta Air Lines will reduce the amount that seats recline on some planes by about two inches (five centimetres), aiming to preserve the workspace of multitasking business travellers.

The first Airbus A320s to get the modified seats will debut this weekend, the carrier said Friday. The distance that seats recline will drop to 3.5 inches from 5.4 in first class, and to 2 inches from 4 in Comfort Plus and coach. The A320s generally are used on flights of two hours or less.

The change - made in response to customer complaints - should make life easier for business travellers trying to work on laptops perched on tray tables, often while viewing mobile phones and seat-back video screens, Delta said.

Great! Many will be glad to this change they're making. There will be enough room for someone working on his/her laptop.

On short flights, absolutely. The person in front of me reclined the second we were in the air and I had a baby on my lap ffs it was only a 3hr flight. And it was hell for me because I was so squished. Definitely don't think 3hrs warranted a reclined seat.

Yes it does. We pay for it. Now sorry about your child I really am but the majority should not have to bow down to the minority.

I think this is a great idea for domestic flights but not such a great idea for international flights.

I flew back from San Francisco behind a woman who reclined her seat immediately the light went off and had to be asked by the flight attendant to sit up even when meals were served( she made it clear she was not pleased) Although I was on the aisle I could not easily get out of my seat to go to the bathroom and this was in premium economy!

Thank goodness, it’s impossible to sit behind someone who has reclined his seat.

And a bloody kid constantly kicking the back of your seat while the parent ignores them.

Yes especially if you're trying to eat form your tray table! WORSE on overseas trips!

About time. Many times I have flown and the person in front reclines and practically ends up on my lap.

If the person in front of me reclines I continually accidentally on purpose knee them in the back because I have no room.
