To anyone who has experienced that soul-crushing frustration as the air traveler in front of you reclines their seat all the way back: Delta Air Lines has the flight for you.
The airline announced plans to test out a decreased seat recline adjustment in order to better “protect customers’ personal space.”
“As part of Delta’s continued efforts to make the in-flight experience more enjoyable, Delta is testing a small change to its 62 A320 aircrafts – adjusting the recline throughout to make multitasking easier,” Delta representative Savannah Huddleston said in a statement to USA TODAY.
The chosen plane model, which makes up about 7% of Delta’s total aircraft fleet, typically transports travelers for less than two hours at a time. The change-up won’t increase the number of seats or decrease the amount of room between rows.
Huddleston continued: “It’s all about protecting customers’ personal space and minimizing disruptions to multitasking in-flight.”
Read: it’ll be much easier to eat, watch shows and get work done without travel neighbor getting in the way.
