Better B764 - CO Or DL

I recently flew on a B764 on CO from EWR to IAH in Business Class, which I purposely scheduled this flight to try out the CO 764. Although it was nice, I was expecting a little more. The layout of 2-1-2 feels spacious, but the seats didn't recline as much as I thought they would, and the IFE is pretty poor. It is a personal monitor, but the screen size is small, and when watching movies in wide-screen format, it shrinks the picture more. Also, it is not AVOD, so I had to wait for the programming to start, and it ended before the flight even landed! Service was good however, and I wish the flight was longer because I do love Boeing 767's overall. I know CO is in the process of updating its widebody fleet to the new BizFirst seats with new IFE, and I'm sure it will be much better than the current offering.
I was wondering if anyone has ever flown on DL 764 in Business Class, and how it compares with the CO 764. I do believe DL is also in the process of updating (or maybe is already complete) their 764's. So which airline has the better in-flight experience with the 764, DL or CO, and why? Which airline do you think will be better after both have completed their respective upgrades? Thanks all!

It's no contest, DL's 764ER product is far superior, with flat-beds in BusinessElite and AVOD in both BusinessElite and Y. I remember when everyone used to brag about how CO's 764ER product was superior to DL back when DL's 764ERs were in the domestic configuration.

To be fair, DL product has been recently updated, CO is about to be updated.



New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

As others have mentioned, it's tough to compare the hard products since CO will be installing new J seats. I like DL's 764 flat-bed BusinessElite seats, but I prefer the 777 flat-beds in the herringbone configuration. CO has better food, but with DL's flat-beds with direct aisle access, I'd take DL over CO.
