LX has no PE.

Recline / knees are better, but way too narrow / shoulder rubbing / aisle bumping for any kind of "premium" qualification.
There must be pressure from FF's corporate accounts indications this isn't acceptable / competitive.
By given up a seat per row you "throw away" 5-6 revenue seats per aircraft.
The $$ loss/yr ends up in the business case, together with the C-class passengers downgrading to an acepatble M+ seat.
I avoided KLM since pitch optimizations / 10 abreast 777s and crampy 787s.
And I'm even not entirely innocent.

DELTA is already in the process of progressively deploying PE throughout their entire INTL long haul fleet, but don't expect them to do so on the DOM fleet. There is no need for PE in DOM markets with Comfort+ already in place and selling very well. I do not recall that DELTA has ever indicated that they were (are) even considering the addition of PE to the DOM fleet, or replacing DOM Comfort+ with PE.
An exception would be if DELTA someday created a small A321 subfleet dedicated to transcons similar to AA, but not holding my breath on that.

Some talk about direct-aisle business class in the 777, but elbers says "not now".
