There’s good news for those who travel frequently to South America:
Copa Airlines has just announced that they will be introducing lie-flat seats in business class, an upgrade from the reclining seats in their existing product.
The seats will be introduced in their new 737 MAX 9 planes. They’ve just taken delivery of their first and in it will go 16 fully flat B/E Aerospace Diamond seats (with 16″ touchscreen monitors) spread across four rows in a 2-2 configuration.

They’re branding their new business class product “Dreams.”
Copa will also be introducing a new Economy Extra product: seats with 34″ of pitch (with 10″ seatback monitors) for a little extra leg room.
But not every product is getting an upgrade. Copa will be eliminating seatback screens in economy, leaving passengers to stream entertainment from their personal devices.
