|Object Name||Seat, Aircraft|
Two connected Delta BusinessElite recliner seats, or sleeper seats. Seat covers are navy blue leather and fabric. Each seat has a footrest, swivel reading light and handset control. Seats are on a carpeted base with an electrical unit that allows them to be plugged into a power outlet and operated for display.
Features of the BusinessElite sleeper seat as described in Delta's 1998 news release announcing the new BusinessElite service:
* Each BusinessElite seat (on all B-767ER, MD-11 and B-777 aircraft) offers more personal space than any other airlines' business class with 60 inches of pitch (ten inches more than industry standard), a full 160 degrees (or 17 inches) of recline, and a highly desirable 2x2x2 seating arrangement (never a middle seat);
* Fully electric controls for recline, lumbar support, leg rest extension for full leg and thigh support, leg rest height and foot rest;
* Redesigned seat backs for a more private environment;
* Battery-saving EmPower(TM) system for laptop computers, a dataport for online access and a personal telephone at every seat;
* Enhanced in-flight entertainment shown on a personal TES(TM) (Total Entertainment System) video screen designed by Rockwell Collins;
* Easy to use TES controls with integrated telephone.
