Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Monday, 3 November 2008

Delta Air Lines has launched nonstop daily services between Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, connecting the Southeast with Indias booming economy.

Delta will operate the flight with the worlds longest-range commercial jetliner, the Boeing 777-200LR, which bolsters Deltas ability to connect passengers and cargo between virtually any two cities around the globe, nonstop. The 777-200LR is Deltas flagship aircraft for its global product, including 180-degree, fully horizontal personal sleeper suites in BusinessElite, next-generation, more comfortable seats in coach, and Deltas on-demand entertainment system on larger screens at every seat. 

Linking Mumbai with the southeastern United States using an aircraft with the passenger and cargo capabilities of the Boeing 777-200LR and the vast connectivity of Deltas Atlanta hub will make a huge contribution not only to Deltas international expansion, but also to Georgias economic growth, said Glen Hauenstein, executive vice president Network and Revenue Management.

Customers flying BusinessElite on any Delta international aircraft can enjoy Delta on Demand featuring first-run and popular classic movies, music, TV programming and video games all available on demand; a five-course menu offering culinary creations by celebrity chef Michelle Bernstein; a reinvented wine program by Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson featuring wines from around the world; full-size pillows and duvets; and in-seat power outlets that allow customers to recharge their laptops. 

Deltas 777-200LR aircraft offers customers flying in coach new and more comfortable, all leather slim-line seats each with on-demand music, movies, games and television on individual nine-inch video monitors. The leading-edge seats from Weber Aircraft LP offer up to 1.5 inches more personal space, additional under-seat storage, and ergonomically-designed cushions.
