Coming Soon: Staggered (Cozier) Seating on Delta
Delta will soon be implementing new seats in their coach class cabin, collectively called “The Cozy Suite”, Thompson Solutions‘ new seat configuration intended to give passengers a more comfortable, snoozable ride. The seats’ design is the result of a nearly 7 year process of research, experimentation, and testing by Thompson Solutions. According to Wired:
[Thompson] started by observing passenger behavior on both short- and long-haul flights. Thompson’s Brian Rogers says the design team came away with two main findings: passengers trying to sleep on long flights tend to position themselves at an angle, and those sitting at the window seat generally seem slightly less miserable because they can rest their head against the wall.
