It may not be as fancy as first class accommodations, but Delta's new "Cozy Suite" seats promise to make economy class seating less of a hellish, crippling nightmare. The major feature of the design is a staggered layout that increases privacy while simultaneously creating a space for weary travelers to rest their heads. It also allows passengers to enjoy 31-inches of leg room (2-inches better than the competition) and the ability to recline without disturbing the person behind them.

Delta is planning on installing the Cozy Suite in its Boeing 777 and 767 economy class aircraft by 2010. Plus, the impending merger between Delta and Northwest could mean that travelers loyal to the latter company might reap the benefits of these new seats as well. Until then, you will just have to suck it up or spring for a higher class ticket. [Thompson Solutions via DVICE via Crunchgear]

@UofITom: You... you shut your mouth!

Please do not do or say anything that might prevent these people from coming up with more ideas like this.

I have never once been on a plane wherein I wanted to talk to the person I was sitting next to. Not even when it was my wife. I would much rather sleep or watch movies, as those are two of the only things that drown out children's screaming, smoker's cough, nose sniffling, or any of the other myriad offending noise one encounters on a plane.

And that extra two inches might not seem like much, but I am 6'5", and any little bit helps.
