Delta’s premium offer

More space for passengers, with up to 38in pitch, 19in of width and 7in of recline, is on the way in Delta Air Lines’ new Premium Economy product, to be introduced on certain international flights from next autumn.

Seats in the new cabin, which will be called Delta Premium and will be seen first on the carrier’s A350s, will also offer adjustable leg-rests and head-rests, special in-flight blankets and pillows from Westin and an amenity kit featuring Malin+Goetz products.

Other benefits include pre-departure refreshments followed by a seasonal menu served on Alessi crockery designed exclusively for Delta; and a 13.3in high-resolution in-flight entertainment screen, among the largest in its class, with noise-cancelling headphones and access to a large library of films, shows and games.

In-seat power ports for large and small devices with convenient storage to keep them within reach are other features and passengers will also be able to use the Sky Priority service, which includes faster check-in, accelerated security, priority boarding and expedited baggage service.

Delta senior vice-president and chief marketing officer Tim Mapes said: “Delta Premium is our latest example of paying careful attention to what customers tell us they want and responding with unique products designed to meet individual needs.”
