A big Addition

In recent months we’ve seen little improvements in ultra long-haul Delta Business Class international service. Amenities like pajamas and improved amenity kits are perks that build more comfort into the “Delta One” brand. Now, a much larger  improvement coming to select flights could finally bring a US legacy carrier to one of the finer standards in global travel. They’re adding doors.

Yes, doors.

A few specs are being kept under wraps for “competitive reasons” according to the New York Times article that broke the story. But Delta released some info about what you’ll get with these seats in their press release:

 

  • A full-height door at every suite
  • Sliding privacy dividers between center suites
  • In-suite, customizable ambient lighting
  • Dedicated stowage compartments for shoes, headphones and laptops
  • Contemporary design featuring premium trim and finishes
  • Memory foam-enhanced comfort cushion
  • An 18-inch, high resolution in-flight entertainment monitor, the largest among U.S. carriers
  • A universal power outlet and high-powered USB port at every seat

Early Edition

With the New York Times early scoop, they posted a single picture of what the new pods will look like…

Since then, Delta has released a few more images to us. Here’ a peek:

Where’s Mine?

Don’t expect to see these on your next flight to Dublin.  Building on the current “Delta One” product these seats will be found on A350 aircraft beginning in the Fall of 2017 and then progressively on their 777 fleet. This enhanced Delta Airlines Business class product will be found mostly on the longest flights, typically over 12 hours.
