Delta Launches Service Between Seattle and Tokyo-Haneda, Hits Lie-Flat Milestone for Trans-Pacific Routes
Flights will depart Seattle-Tacoma International Airport at 9:10 p.m. and arrive at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport at 11:30 p.m. the following day. Flights from Tokyo will depart at 12:30 a.m. and arrive in Newark at 5:40 p.m. the previous day.
The aircraft is configured with 36 fully lie-flat seats in business class, 29 seats in premium economy, and 143 coach seats. Delta’s BusinessElite business-class seats are 20.5” wide and pitched at 80” on average. All have direct aisle access. Seats in Economy Comfort, the airline’s premium economy section are the same as in coach except that Economy Comfort seats are pitched at 35” versus 31” to 32” in the main cabin.
With the start of this flight, Delta is hitting a milestone: all of its trans-Pacific flights will have fully lie-flat seats in business class.
Before the start of this service, Seattle was the largest west-coast city without nonstop service to Haneda Airport.
