So essentially they removed wires that the end user will never notice. Changed the material on a seat thats been the same shape for thirty plus years and improved the ergonomics on an item one person in a row might feel the difference off. The airline industry has to be one of the most stagnant industries when it comes to innovation and its no suprise then why it took three and a half years to bring their 777s up to this standard.
I am a little surprised they didn’t move the screen into a more ergonomic position. Given that it’s “wireless” it didn’t need to be mounted on the back of the seat. Bringing the touch screen closer to the user would not only have improved the viewing experiences but gotten rid of the need to have a remote control. At the end of the day the changes they have made seem minuscule on the impact on the user experience. Shouldn’t the seat material be fire retardant to begin with? The blue material they use isn’t unique to the 777 either they are common place in newer regional delta aircrafts. I also think its a hard sell to say that the overheard compartments are groundbreaking. The customer only uses it twice during the flight once when closing it and once when opening the cubby at the end of the flight where the electronic assist has no impact. Plus the cubby is meant for a whole row so maybe 1/3 of passengers will ever experience the difference.

Bruh they spent millions for some amazing tech and other really cool stuff but like, could they not afford 10$ a seat to allow the TVs to have a wider angle? Like it’s good and all but the tv’s are painful to use when you’re even just a little bit reclined :|

What a kick in the nuts--all that effort to design a new interior, and then COVID dictates the retirement of all the aircraft. Sorry guys!

Remember when 34" legroom in economy was the standard and the passengers weren't forced to shame seat recliners?

Interiors, like the exterior, also need to be made as light as possible, for fuel efficiency. Every kilo counts, that why they charge you for having overweight luggage. Essentially, a plane is a lightweight aluminium tube, with wings that barely hold the lights on the end. That's why it's completely impossible for one flying at 450mph hitting a building, such as, I don't know, a steel and concrete skyscraper, and disappear completely inside.

I remember when the headset cords were made of rubber tubes like straws so the sound could travel through it, the same same science of a string and two tin cans.

How about design the arm rest in the middle seats to have a divider, so that both people on the left and right can rest their arms, and the center person can as well, without them touching each other. A simple fiber glass would do the trick. It's a simple design that will make everyone more comfortable.

Delta is the primary reason I became a Private Pilot. Their aircraft are junk, and their "Stewardesses" are the worst in the industry!
