  1. The new Delta domestic first class seat looks like an upgrade to its current premium economy seat with better storage and wings that give the illusion of privacy. There is an inch less legroom than PE and no footrest though.

  2. And from TPG: “The seat covers — stitched in Delta’s signature checkered pattern — are made from synthetic leather”

    Another way of saying plastic.

  3. Now that AA’s fixed their FC seats, I would love a foot rest added but short of that, they are great. I am not a fan of the “wings” near my head that DL is adding, doesn’t look like a great experience I agree that they look hard.
