Delta Airlines Lay Flat Business Class

I had the opportunity to try Delta's lay flat business class seats when I went over to London. It was a free upgrade so that I could experience it. The seats come with extensive controls. Every part of the seat moves and it also has a massage option for your back. The seats also have their own tv screen in the back of the seat in front of you. The meals, snacks, drinks, and service are amazing. I wish I could fly in business class all the time but my budget can barely afford coach, especially with the fuel surcharge. Has anyone else flown business class? What did you think?

That sounds like a great upgrade. I'm glad you got to experience it. This also sounds like a much better design that what the Europeans have where the screens move with the seats! Have a great day!

I hate those seats. The TV screen is right in front of your face so when the person in front tilts their seat back, the TV's just three inches in front of your nose. My eyes can't focus that close! I'm talking about some middle east airlines, not Delta. They aren't business class either. I guess America is always several years behind in this kind of technology. Lay flat seats were probably first introduced by Aeroflot decades ago, as the aircraft could double as passenger or freight.

The tvs are actually built into the shell of the seat in front of you which does not move. The seat inside the shell is what reclines. It is pretty neat. They even have remote controls and games you can play. I know middle eastern airlines have incredible first and business sections. I would love to fly on Emirates one day, just to experience their service.

With many airlines you get what you pay for. However at 4 or 5 times the price of a coach seat it does not seem worth it to me when I will be on the flight for only a few hours. I think of what I could be spending my savings on once I get to my destination.
