So you are taking a Y class product which has an inch narrower seat size, a couple more inches in the emergency row only, and calling that a very business class product?
There are 4 rows (not just exit row) which are all at 39 inch, so that's all 16 seats vs 37 inch on Delta first class. The width is 18.25 inch vs 19.6 inch on Delta fc. I don't see the difference to be that large. And ife options for b6 is better. If you have mosaic status, getting upgraded to ems is pretty cheap. A lot of times, mosaic members can ask for upgrade at gate and getfree upgrade to ems.
Secondly, most people traveling for business on such short flight is not going to buy first class ticket and the y experience on b6 e90 is certainly miles ahead of anything Delta has to offer on their regional jet.
So the combination makes it a good product. After all, you could be stuck on a sub 17 inch seat with 34 inch pitch on Delta comfort+ if your upgrade doesn't go through. And Delta is the most stingy of the legacy carriers in free upgrades.
