Delta completes new international BusinessElite layout
Delta Air Lines today announced it had completed the installation of full flat-bed seats with direct-aisle access in BusinessElite cabins across its international widebody fleet.
The completed interior fleet modifications includes all A330-200/300, 767-300ER/400ER, 747-400 and 777-200ER/LR. It is the completion of Delta's largest interior fleet modification investment in more than a decade.
“With these modifications complete, Delta also is the only U.S. domestic carrier to offer personal on-demand entertainment in every seat on all long-haul international flights,” said a release from the airline.
"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," said Tim Mapes, senior vice president – Marketing. "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, Delta also will operate three updated 757s with full flat-bed seats on the transcontinental route between New York Kennedy and Los Angeles International airports. 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 the summer of 2015
