Delta is cutting how far back passengers can recline their seats in half on its Airbus A320 planes, which make up about seven percent of its fleet. Seats in coach will now be able to recline just two inches instead of four inches, and seats in first-class will recline up to 3.5 inches, down from 5.4 inches. The airline said the goal of the change is, quote, "protecting customers' personal space and minimizing disruptions to multitasking in-flight." Delta wants to make it easier for passengers to use their laptops or to look at video content on the screen in the back of the seat in front of them. Legroom isn't being reduced and more seats aren't being added because of the seat-back recline change.
