I will be covering my latest MSP-SEA-EAT Delta Mileage Run later on this week, but I at least wanted to touch on a livery that Delta is upgrading as they can (i.e. get them and get the seats to upgrade them). Dave & I had a chance to enjoy these updated seats on the way back to MSP from Seattle’s SeaTac airport.
Unlike the old seats that seem a bit over-sized and cramped to me, these seats are comfortable and make much better use of the space. Clearly the IFE is VERY good (just like the 737-900). The screens are bright and the touch is responsive and works well. Plus you have an earphone jack in both the screen AND in the armrest. Really like that.
As for power, you have the USB on the IFE screen, in your armrest and then you also have power between your seats. You can never have enough power and you have power with these seats.
I will also say I like the fold out tray but I think, years from now, they are going to have stability issues, but that is not now.
Lastly the back row. With the old seats the recline felt very limited and when the seat in front of you went all the way back it was not a fun place to be. The new seats are, to me, much better and I will not actively avoid this row anymore. Nice change.
Bottom line Delta has done a nice job making this very old jet seem fresh and new. Have you had a chance to fly the 757s with the new slim line seats? Do you like them? – René
