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. Or, at least, Delta doesn't think so.

There are no plans to change the coach recline on worldwide flights, according to The Points Guy.
Flights may be more comfortable for passengers, especially those who want to work on their computers, Mayerowitz added.
