Delta’s “Cozy Suite” in Economy Class

Most of us hate economy class, Delta’s new “Cozy Suite” seats promise to make economy class seating less hellish. 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 to have these seats in the economy section of its Boeing 777 and 767 fleet by year 2010. It still may not be as fancy as first class accommodations, but it’s a change from what we are having.

DayJet Air Taxi is now available!

So when American Airline is in trouble and Oasis Airline closing down, we should be thankful that there’s still an option of viable air-taxi service by a new company called DayJet. The Atlantic Monthly’s James Fallows asserts that, by using its fleet of tiny Eclipse 500 Jets to shuttle passengers back and forth to wherever they want to go and whenever they want to get there, DayJet is one of the first companies to offer such service to United States.

The problem with taxis, whether on ground or in sky, is that it can be costly. Wired.com states that DayJet’s service may cost about twice as much as a standard flight. On top of that, it is currently limited to the southeast corner of the country of United States.
