Delta Will Upgrade All Business Class Seats to Flat Beds on Transcon Flights Beginning in March (and Continuing for 2 Years)

Delta is placing a big bet on its transcon service, announcing that they will upgrade their premium cabins to all-flat beds on flights between JFK and Los Angeles; San Francisco; and Seattle beginning in March. The conversion for all aircraft will take 2 years.

Transcon flights will now all be operated by 757s and 767s, with 767s entering the JFK-LAX market beginning in March. Additional 767s with the new cabin will roll out over the following 3 months to 3 additional JFK-LAX flights and 1 JFK-SEA flight. The first LAX flight will coincide with transfers to Delta’s LAX-Sydney service so premium class travelers will enjoy lie-flat seats from JFK through to Sydney.

767s will have a 1-2-1 layout of its 26 BusinessElite seats upfront and offer 29 Economy Comfort seats.

And unlike United’s now-aging P.S. service, these new seats will be eligible for free Medallion Upgrades (though I imagine those will be nearly impossible to come by).
