"We're not adding a single seat into the aircraft", Dimbiloglu told The Points Guy.
Altering the seats can be done overnight and will take two months for all of Delta's 62 A320s.
The A320s generally are used on flights of two hours or less.
The airline says these changes are a test; feedback from passengers will determine whether this change will affect other domestic jets or whether coach seats will return to their prior 4-inch tilt. "I have to turn them sideways, and it's worse when the seat drops back". "But this is really about more personal space".
Delta told The Points Guy that too many laptops have been struck by the reclined seats, and the reclined seats make it hard for passengers behind to watch video screens.
Delta announced Friday it will cut down the amount of seat recline from four inches to two in economy class on its A320 aircraft, beginning Saturday.
If you take a Delta A320 flight in the near future and you're not happy with the limited seat reclining ability - speak up.
"Passengers are packed so tightly into planes these days that any invasion of our personal space is amplified, and seat recline is one of those trigger points that easily leads to disputes between passengers", he told CNN Travel.
'There's always been a debate among frequent travelers if flyers should have a right to recline or not, ' explained Scott Mayerowitz, executive editorial director of The Points Guy. Or, at least, Delta doesn't think so. According to The Points Guy, though, the airline has no plans to do so yet.
Mayerowitz explained that less leg space could come as a welcome development for some passengers. You might want to make sure you're fully stocked on canned goods, because now, Delta is making yet another move to increase customer satisfaction. "Anybody who ever tried to work on a plane only to have their laptop screen slammed by the seat in front of them will rejoice at the change".
