to bring art to the place where the two brands meet most often –

created an art gallery in the sky – transforming the tray tables

to their trays and drew inspiration from some of the airline’s
most popular destinations, including: Amsterdam, Atlanta, London,
Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York City, Paris, Sao Paulo,
Seattle, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo.
;Each piece of art celebrates
themes of optimism, travel, refreshment and happiness.
In addition to the in-the-air art gallery, Delta
will be displaying the original trays in Concourse A, between
gates A15 and A11 at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International

strengthened in 1941 when Delta moved its headquarters to Atlanta,
the hometown of The Coca-Cola Company. Today, the airline serves
Coca-Cola products on all flights and in Sky Clubs, serving more
than 354 million drinks per year.
Delta, along with
creative agency Wieden+Kennedy New York and Coca-Cola, developed
and implemented the art gallery.
