How much do ADO gl bus seats recline?

I'm looking into traveling from Tulum to Palenque by overnight bus with my 12 year old daughter in July. It is about a 10 hour trip. I'm wondering how much the seats recline on the ADO gl bus? I generally can't sleep on airplanes. How do they compare to economy airplane seat in the US? ADO gl is the highest level bus for this route.

Thanks.

I cannot speak exactly to the ADO GL line, but I can tell you that I took a 12 hour overnight Primera Plus bus from CDMX to Pto. Vallarta last Labor Day weekend, and I was able to sleep quite comfortably (except for the 8 yr old kid 3 rows up who had a constant cough and kept me awake). However I also sleep quite comfortably on airplanes too.

The Primera Plus bus had foot rests, seat belts, calf rests (like on a recliner at home), individual electronic entertainment systems on the seatback in front of each seat, electric charging stations including USB and regular 110v plugs, and both male / female separate restrooms. I really did think it was a comfortable trip.

Hopefully RobertSDF will ring in, as he has traveled extensively in México and can probably speak directly about ADO GL. Safe travels.

¡Diviértanse!

While the buses LG describes, are more like the ADO Platino buses, the GL buses are good. The seats are very comfortable and do recline more than standard airplane seats or the first class bus seats. They also have more leg room. The buses also have both men's and ladies restrooms as well as the coffee area in back.

The buses are normally very punctual in arriving at Palenque. You might want to take along a jacket, sweater, or blanket since the buses can be cold at night. Also if you want any snacks or drink, take that along. Will only make a brief stop at Chetumal or you may have enough time to grab something if necessary.

I have ridden this bus often all the way to San Cristobal and found it very comfortable

Forgot to mention, don't worry about having a well-rested driver at all times. The buses have a sleeping area below where one driver sleeps while the other drives and at some point of the trip they will change drivers.
