Delta to expand Premium Select to more aircraft this spring
Delta has announced it is expanding its Delta Premium Select experience to more aircraft this spring, with plans to outfit its 767-300 aircraft beginning this May and A330 fleet beginning mid-July. Both fleet types will receive additional upgrades, such as refreshed lavatories, new LED cabin lighting, expanded personal power outlets and memory-foam comfort cushions. Both aircraft will now have four cabin experiences to give customers more options whether booking for business or leisure: Delta One, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin.
“As customers return to travel, we’re bringing them better and more comfortable experiences, and that includes introducing Delta Premium Select to more aircraft in our fleet,” said Byron Merritt, V.P. – Brand Experience Design. “We know customers are ready to get back into the world, and that is driving us to accelerate improvements to our aircraft that will give our customers the best onboard products.”
Delta Premium Select, an elevated Delta cabin experience available on select international routes, debuted in 2017. It features a wider seat, additional recline and an adjustable foot and leg rest on select widebody aircraft, passengers customers more ways to cruise in comfort. Those seated in Delta Premium Select also receive a TUMI amenity kit, noise-cancelling headsets and a blanket and pillow to help them arrive at their destination refreshed and relaxed.
The fleet mods are the latest in a series of efforts Delta is making to modernize the customer experience as travel demand picks up. In recent months, the airline has announced plans to outfit nearly all its domestic mainline fleet with high-speed connectivity, introduced new contactless payment options onboard and shared plans to build a seamless digital experience that takes the guesswork out of international travel. It is also rebuilding its global reach in the year ahead with new routes to Iceland and Greece.
