I think the interesting point in here is the new configuruation (which may have been stated before) resulting in a 4% reduction in seats (but 28% reduction in BE seats)

Currently:
65C / 338Y = 403

New Config:
48C / 338Y = 386

The problem with the CO seats, however, is that not everyone has aisle access. Delta is specifically looking to make sure that all airplanes have flat beds with direct access to the aisle from each seat. CO seats don't allow that. These look similar to the new US Airways seats with the reverse herringbone, and I'm told those are getting rave reviews.

yikes.
Ok where to start, how do you know Delta hasn't studied anything? i look at these seats vs the LR seats and i see changes that a lot of people wanted, (see out the windows, longer seat for tail people, be able to see the person your with.) second the PTV is the same size as COs, third remind me to send CO a cookie for the 757 flat bed thing.

Whoa, what makes you think those are 17 high fair [sic] passengers? This is probably like United's flat bed strategy which was to provide a much better product that people will pay for instead of one that people will upgrade to. No question elites won't like that part of it, but that doesn't mean it's crazy.

Firstly, the window seat is now facing towards the window, while the center seats are far better for a couple traveling together than the herringbone layout on the 777LR. This is in direct response to customer feedback regarding what pax don't like about the 777 seats today. As for the TV monitor "looking really small" - re-read the press release - the PTV screen size is 15.4 inches, the SAME size screens as the CO Flat Beds.

And the bed is actually longer than the CO Flat beds- 81.7 inches long versus 78 inches.

The Delta Revenue Mgmt people are not idiots. Before they made a decision to cut the BE seats, they must have done an adequate study to justify their recommendation to fleet planning.

Also, some of that 'lost' revenue could be regained by increasing the cargo load.

It's not a claim, it's the truth. Maybe if you'd flown as much as you state, you'd have noticed that.

How can you make that judgement looking at CGI rather than the seats themselves? Bland, sure (I agree), but cheap?

Quoting COalways (Reply 8):

Honestly, it's pretty absurd to assume Delta, who has tonnes and tonnes of data about how many people pay for what on every route it flies didn't use that data when deciding on seat configuration. I'm guessing they kept Economy the same and shrank Business for a reason.
...

Quoting COalways (Reply 8):

Yes, exactly. Which means we probably don't need to talk about CO and BusinessFirst. Rather, how about we discuss the DL product on its own merits.

Quoting COalways (Reply 8):
I [sic] rather have a BIG screen tv with variety, seated next to my seat mate so we can enjoy our meal and a overall good comfy seat.

The size a screen needs to be is relative to it's position. I'd need to sit in the seat to judge screen size, but from looking at the pictures, ya, it could be bigger. Something 20" or so would have been nicer. Still, it's a quibble.

I do like that they've changed the direction from aisle-facing to inward facing a la US. I'd much rather look out a window than at the feet of the person across from me. As an enthusiast, of course, I will still gripe about not being able to press my face up against the window and see more.

However, do the 17 fewer seats translate into 17 fewer revenue Business Class passengers or 17 fewer upgrade passengers? My guess is the revenue from the C cabin will remain the same.

I am sure that DL was well aware of the needs of its customers when they designed these seats. It looks like a great improvement over what was there before. You are obviously biased towards CO and that is your opinion. Until you experience the seats I would save your judgement.

I don't really love the styling colors of these either, but I do have to say that if I were forced into sitting in the center section I would much prefer these seats with only 2 together, than the UA 747 C seats which have 4 in the middle. And great that the Y Cabin is getting PTV's, again something UA should have coughed up for on the 747.

For the most part, I like this. I think everyone has been waiting with baited breath on what DLs plans were in detail for the whales. Now we know.

The good:

They went with the herringbone seats and not the 764 seats. Given the width of the 744, this IMO was a must. Also, very nice to see they've responded to customer feedback and will reverse the herringbone. It also looks like some extra storage is available which was lacking on the 77L seats. Let's not forget Y class, which was in more of a dire need for refurbishing than the C class. New, slimline seats will add to the comfort and space for the Y cabin. FInally, a AVOD system for the 744 customers, which was also very long over due.

The disappointing:

I realize the beancounters have probably done the math, but this new configuration is a major reduction in BE capacity. I can't imagine they'll be willing or able to raise the fares comparably. The service is good, but it's not THAT good. Most PMNW flights to NRT were virtually always full in WBC. I know, I know, high loads don't = high yields/profits. But I can't imagine things are so dramatically different these days post merger as far as the economics of the 744 BE cabin. And before anyone comments on non-revs in C class... it was always rather difficult to snag a WBC/BE seat unless the flight was unusually empty. This new configuration does however, put it inline with the rest of the international fleet, with respect to C/Y ratio. Plus, these new seats take up more space, so something had to give... take away more C seats or Y. I'm surprised they didn't opt for reducing the Y cabin, since I would have guessed DLs pricing power comes in the premium cabins, not Y.

Overall, this was much anticipated and a good thing for the airline, its customers and employees. I know it's a long shot, but it would be nice to see the 777s get retrofitted with this new seat, purely for product consistency. Since they refuse to ever mention the 330s and their plans for that fleet, this will make 4 BE configurations flying.

Ummm. No. They didn't design them. They selected them. Big difference. Here is the company that did the design :

http://www.jpadesign.com/transport/project/7

JPA designed the seat for Zodiac Aerospace, and its marketed under their Weber brand as "Cirrus" and the Sicma brand as "Cirrus" as well.

DL have selected the Weber Cirrus, and have customised the options to suit them.
They are the same seats as US is installing on their A330, so nothing innovative here.

http://www.weberair.com/seating-systems/images/cirrus1.jpg
http://www.weberair.com/seating-systems/images/cirrus2.jpg

So, for the record, DL are not the launch customer for this seat, US was. Also, for the record, the same applies to the Contour seat (www.contour.aero) on the 777s and the Thompson Solutions Vantage seat (www.thompsonaero.com) on the 767s. JET/AC were the launch customer for the Contour seat, and Swiss was the launch customer for the Vantage seat.
