Delta Premium Seats to Launch in 2017
Delta announced this morning, that they are adding another seat product to their growing international lineup. The Delta Premium cabin will be introduced on the airline’s Airbus A350s entering service in the fall of 2017. Delta A350s will feature 48 Delta Premium seats, as well as 32 Delta One suites and 226 Main Cabin seats. Delta Premium will roll out on its Boeing 777 fleet beginning in 2018. It appears that Delta is replacing its Delta Comfort+ seats in favor of these fancy new Premium seats.
Delta Premium will feature:
- More space with up to 38 inches of pitch, up to 19 inches of width and up to seven inches of recline. Delta Premium seats will also offer adjustable leg rests and headrests;
- Westin Heavenly® In-Flight Blanket with pillow and a TUMI amenity kit featuring Malin+Goetz Travel Essentials, allowing customers to settle in and arrive well-rested;
- Pre-departure beverage service followed by fresh, seasonal menu selections presented with Alessi serviceware designed exclusively for Delta;
- A 13.3-inch, high resolution in-flight entertainment screen that is among the largest in its class, allowing customers to stay entertained with Delta Studio’s industry-leading library of complimentary movies, shows and games, and noise-cancelling headphones;
- In-seat power ports for large and small devices and convenient storage to keep them within reach;
- Sky Priority service, which includes faster check-in, accelerated security, priority boarding and expedited baggage service.
Seats feature more legroom (6-7″ more), fold-out adjustable footrests, 13.3″ entertainment screens, and power ports at each seat. You’ll also get priority boarding, an amenity kit, and improved beverage service.
Delta Premium comes on the heels of the news earlier this year about the upgraded Delta One cabins. The Delta One suite will be the world’s first business class cabin to feature a sliding door at each suite,and will be available on the A350 when it launches next year. I’ve been saving up my SkyMiles to try out the new A350 and it looks like the Delta Premium will be a good option if you want a little more room and overall better experience but don’t want to use all your miles to upgrade to the Delta One cabin.
