From October 10th Delta Air Lines will revamp the coach class offering on its Boeing 737-800 to offer more comfortable seating and a new entertainment system.

Some 144 coach class spaces are available on the 737 narrow-body aircraft and Delta claims to be the first airline to offer the new 'slim-line' seats from Weber Aircraft.

The seats reportedly boast ergonomically designed cushions using pressure mapping technology and advanced, lightweight materials.

Delta's Boeing 737s will also be the first in North or South America to feature an on-demand entertainment system in every passenger's seat.

Joanne Smith, the airline's senior vice-president of inflight services, said: "Introducing more comfortable and roomy seating for coach class customers and expanding Delta on Demand to more of our airplanes are additional steps we're making to ensure Delta passengers enjoy a great experience when they travel with us on long-haul flights."

A new 737-800 aircraft will be introduced approximately every two weeks, meaning that a total of 28 planes with the new inflight offerings will be operational by May 2008.
