While several airlines are making headlines for downsizing the dimensions of their seats and even their bathrooms, Delta Air Lines has decided to give passengers a little more wiggle room on its 777 aircraft.

As Delta undergoes a fleet-wide interior renovation of its 777 aircraft, the planes are reemerging with a new main cabin that features nine seats per row in a 3-3-3 configuration. This means that Economy class passengers will have wider seats than in an industry standard aircraft that features 10 seats per row in a 3-4-3 configuration.

The upgraded 777 design is part of Delta’s multi-billion dollar investment in the overall customer experience. In the past several years, the airline has enhanced its main cabin experience with complimentary main cabin meals on select coast-to-coast routes, complimentary mobile messaging, complimentary in-flight entertainment, upgraded main cabin snacks, the addition of sparkling wine, access to WiFi on nearly all flights, enhanced blankets and refreshed Flight Fuel food-for-purchase options.

The 777 planes now feature a total of 296 seats including seating for 28 passengers in the Delta One suites and for 48 travelers in the Delta Premium Select cabin.
