"huge improvement in seat comfort"

(South Africa)

I found the 15 hour flight ATL-JNB relatively comfortable in part to a small passenger sitting in the middle seat. This aircraft is a huge improvement in seat comfort. If you are bigk always go for an aisle in the center section so as to give the middle passenger a choice of who to force up in order to get out and use the facilities every two and a half minutes.

"these seats are horrible"

(Germany)

For a night flight these seats are horrible. Ways too little recline. There is a metal box under the seat in front of you blocking leg extension. Nice AVOD system but since it is a touchscreen your seat jiggles when someone plays games for instance. That is annoying when you try to catch some sleep. No movable armrest on the aisle-side.

"very cramped and uncomfortable"

(United States)

For economy class CDG to CVG the seat was adequate and better than on Air France B747 transatlantic which was very cramped and uncomfortable. I was lucky to have the seat beside me empty and I could lift the arm rest for more room. Aircraft had the large overhead screen (shared with everyone) instead of the private screen in the seat in front of you.

"little lower back support"

(United States)

The leather seats in Delta economy from Atlanta to Stuttgart and back were definitely less comfortable then the previous cloth seats. There was little lower back support (thank god for a pillow) the seats do not breath so as your sitting there you will sweat through your clothes and worst of all the design of the headphones they give and the headphone jack do not allow you to adjust seating position in your seat. One move and the cheap headphones busted.

"poor legroom"

(United Kingdom)

Row 43 right at the back. Poor legroom (I'm 6'1). On the way we were seated in row 37 (one behind emergency exit) which seemed much better.

"the legroom is very poor"

(United States)

Delta's new seats on the Boeing 767-300 aircraft are terrible at best. They are extremely uncomfortable and aft of the overwing exit rows they are all misaligned with the windows. They do not have winged headrests and because the windows are misaligned you cannot rest your head on the wall next to you. Instead of typical recline the seatback reclines partially and the seat cushion slides forward which in reality offers less recline than typical economy seats. In addition the legroom is very poor except for the exit rows. All PTVs are touch screen so when the person behind you is using the system it can become very annoying as you feel the tapping throughout the flight.
