Delta Enhances Flight Experience Between US, Japan and Australia

As Delta takes delivery of more A350-900 aircraft and refurbishes additional B777-200ER and LR aircraft, more passengers will be able to experience Delta One suite, Delta Premium Select and nine-abreast seating in the main cabin.

 Delta customers will soon be able to fly the new and refurbished aircraft on the five following trans-Pacific routes:

Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP) – Tokyo-Haneda (HND) 777-200ER from 16 Nov westbound; 17 Nov eastbound;

Los Angeles (LAX) – Tokyo-Haneda (HND) A350-900 from 31 March westbound; 1 April eastbound; and

Los Angeles (LAX) – Sydney (SYD) 777-200LR - Exact 2019 timing yet to be announced.

All Delta trans-Pacific departures from Los Angeles will feature the Delta One suite and Delta Premium Select as a result once fully implemented in 2019.

Delta’s Airbus A350-900 flagship and upgraded 777 design is part of Delta's multi-billion dollar investment in the overall customer experience. In the past several years, the airline has made significant enhancements to the Main Cabin experience including free Main Cabin meals on select coast-to-coast routes, free mobile messaging, free in-flight entertainment, upgraded Main Cabin snacks, the addition of sparkling wine, access to Wi-Fi on nearly all flights, enhanced blankets and refreshed Flight Fuel
food-for-purchase options.

 Recent upgrades to the Delta One in-flight experience include new chef-designed Delta One menus curated by Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo for flights from LAX, refreshed TUMI amenity kits with Kiehl's products, and an Alessi-designed collection of service ware.

Delta will refurbish all eight of its 777-200ER and all ten of its 777-200LR aircraft and expects to have taken delivery of 13 A350s by the end of 2019.

Today, Delta offers the Delta One suite and Delta Premium Select on nonstop service from its Detroit hub to Tokyo-Narita, Seoul-Incheon, Shanghai, Beijing and Amsterdam; from Los Angeles to Shanghai and from Atlanta to Seoul-Incheon.
