Coming Soon for Your Legs and Butt: Alaska Airlines' New Seats
We haven’t heard too much from Alaska Airlines lately. Of course there was that time they ditched the prayer cards and the mysteriously itchy uniforms, but now they’re making news for an actual improvement. The eskimo-faced carrier is looking forward to the arrival of some new seats.
Alaska Airlines fell hard for the presentation from the suits over at Recaro Aircraft Seating, as they’re going all in with one of the manufacturer’s latest designs. The updated features include a six-way adjustable headrest, as well as three inches of recline. The new seats will even feature like an inch more of legroom, so feel free to stretch out once aboard—at least just a little bit.
Unfortunately all of their planes aren’t scheduled for the retrofit and refurbishment, but the new seats will make their debut on the airline’s yet-to-be delivered Boeing 737-900ERs. We may be airplane geeks, but new seats benefit everyone and make for some added in-flight entertainment as you learn all the new buttons and levers. Well at least for five minutes, and then it's back to the in-flight WiFi.
