RE: Is Delta Down-sizing Business Elite?

No, the 777's remained unchanged in Business Elite Seat count as a result of the BusinessElite downsizing, however due to the overhead crew rest on the 3 777P aircraft the 777's lost 2 seats (52 down to 50). There is no plan to reduce capacity on the 777's.
