  • Remeber, business class makes more than economy, but economy is usually 60% or more of the space. They would love to just have business class. The only way to make it cheaper to fly, is smaller seats and weight

  • Amazing Video. Bitcoin has faced a rather strong resistance after its explosion to the $11,100 highs. At the recent lows, the asset traded as low as $10,300 - around 8% ish below the local highs couple of weeks back. Despite this slight slip and the fact that BTC remains above $14,000, we should all remain bullish on Bitcoin. I think bitcoin could soon move higher to $20,000 in a couple of days. As a crypto trader the past few weeks has recorded immerse benefits all round,,, my only regret now is not knowing Mr taylor on time, his top notch signals remains the bedrock of the successes recorded in my personal trading portfolio. his trading technics helps me get my profit... i already made $100k with his. investing on cryptocurrencies is now the new source of income for everyone he continues to be an inspiration to all who have been fortunate to have made use of his signals.You all can reach out to him through or on WhatsApp +1 409 299 3921

  • I used to hate delta.. my parents used delta for every vacation growing up, and I always felt there was no legroom and it was too compact overall. Now I realize that delta is actually one of the better airlines as far as comfort and price, their economy seats actually aren’t half bad. I always remember looking at the Comfort+ and business seats and wishing I could experience that lmao. Economy seats will never be comfortable, that would contradict the name. It can be compared to one’s economic class and the house they live in. You won’t see a person below the poverty line living in a mansion. Nice shit costs money.

  • I have a fix for those that don't like the middle seat: just get rid of it. No, no... hear me out. Being the one stuck in the middle seat means that you have to say excuse me every single time you get up to hit the John, and every time you come back to your seat. it gets annoying for other passengers as well, to the point where if you keep it up they'll wanna (how should i put this subliminally?) make your sleep long and comfortable. Removing that seat ensures that no one gets stuck in either predicament. There's no reason to get up out of YOUR seat so the middle passenger can get in/out if there's NO MIDDLE SEAT TO BEGIN WITH!!!!!!!!!!!! I know what you're all gonna say "How's the plane gonna accommodate for 240 passengers?" Well that's easy as well... YOU DON'T!!!!!!!! But that's a good thing, because if removing a few mere pounds of cable can relate to less fuel consumption, and reduce cost, just think of how much you would save with at least 4 pounds less mass + the added weight of the seat missing???? It also means more savings for travelers as they don't have to pay the extra fees. It also creates more overall leg room for the passengers and the crew. which would also equate to the fixing the similar issue of having to say excuse me every time you wanna get in/out of the window seat was well. "but i like the window seat" I'm sure you do, but it doesn't mean you should be left trapped up against the window, at the mercy of the... hard working passenger next to you - you know, the one who sounds like he's working the construction site? 😴😴😴😴😴 Without the middle seat, that leaves more room to bring the outer seats in so that the window seaters can just get up and go without disturbing the wood worker next to them. IT'S WIN-WIN!!!!!!! And besides, who the hell wants to be crammed in a tube with 238 other passengers??????? With my idea, you have less available seats for passengers, but at least everyone can just get up without disturbing their neighbor, and no one has to feel smashed into a sardine can, either. IT'S WIN-WIN BABY The irony is I'm scared shitless of heights and refuse to even fly in the first place, and this is MY idea?????? WHAT??¿??????????

  • 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.
