Delta passengers will be in for a treat when boarding select Boeing 737-800s in first class, Delta Comfort+, and Main Cabin starting this month.
These refreshed interiors are the same that can be found on Delta’s A321neo, which gets rave reviews.
Delta has also announced an increase of Delta One Suites on its fleet of Airbus A350-900s. So, if you have plans to fly Delta domestically or abroad, you now have more chances to score a nice seat.
Let’s take a look at the details.
Delta’s refreshed interiors and innovative seats are finally making their way to the Boeing 737-800.
These updates feature Delta’s new domestic first class seats with extra privacy, power outlets, storage, and workspace.
“Delta is committed to creating a consistent and elevated customer experience across all touchpoints of the travel journey, which includes offering the best products for our customers while in-flight,” said Mauricio Parise, vice president of brand experience. “Enhancing our aircraft interiors with select retrofits will give customers more premium options to choose from.”
Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin will also benefit from the retrofit with 10-inch Panasonic IFE screens packed with entertainment and updated bathrooms with touchless features.Hot Tip:
The first Delta 737-800 refreshed was N3744F. You can track its schedule on FlightAware.
Delta is answering the demand for more premium products by expanding its Delta One cabin on the A350-900 aircraft.
Updated versions will feature 40 Delta One Suites, an increase of 8 seats of the popular business class cabin, as well as 40 Delta Premium Select seats, 36 Delta Comfort+ seats, and just 159 Main Cabin seats.
Delta will remove 31 Main Cabin seats to make these additions to Delta One, Delta Premium Select, and Delta Comfort+.
The first modified A350-900 is expected to enter into service in summer 2024.
A refresh is always welcome, especially when it includes a great first class product (which can be hard to find on a domestic flight) and more international business class space.
We don’t often see airlines removing economy seats to expand its business class, but that is exactly what Delta is doing with its Delta One Suites onboard select A350-900s — and that is good news if you are looking for award space.
If you are flying a 737-800 soon, you might get lucky with a refreshed model. But you will have to wait until summer if you want to score a modified A350-900.
