Delta (DL) has completed the installation of full flat-bed seats with direct-aisle access in BusinessElite across its entire international widebody fleet,
The interior fleet modifications include all Delta Airbus A330-200/300, Boeing 767-300ER/400ER, 747-400 and 777-200ER/LR aircraft, which represents Delta’s largest interior fleet modification investment in more than a decade.
With these modifications complete, Delta is the only US domestic carrier to offer personal, on-demand entertainment at every seat on all long-haul international flights.
Since 2010, Delta also has:
- launched international Wi-Fi service and completed the installation of Wi-Fi on all domestic, two-class mainline and regional jets, offering more than 400,000 customers per day access to the Internet above 10,000 feet on more than 870 aircraft
- updated BusinessElite amenity kits with stylish cases from Tumi and skincare product brand Malin+Goetz
- introduced International Economy Sleep Kits and added new amenities for its Economy customers on transoceanic flights
Tim Mapes, senior vice president – Marketing says
“We’re investing in giving our customers the wide range of options they want on long flights — from being fully connected via in-flight Wi-Fi to being fully disconnected and enjoying a great movie or comfortable sleep. Delta has set a new standard for our customers by adding full flat-bed seats with direct-aisle access, improved meals and amenities, and quality in-flight entertainment options.”
Beginning July 1, 2014, Delta also will operate three updated Boeing 757 aircraft with full flat-bed seats on the transcontinental route between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport. These will be the first 757 aircraft in service to feature Delta’s previously announced upgrades including full flat-bed seats in BusinessElite on transcon flights between New York-JFK and Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. All transcon flights on these routes will feature full flat-bed seats by summer 2015.
