Delta Air Lines became the first North American operator of the state-of-the-art Airbus A350 XWB on Thursday in a move it said continued its “ongoing effort to transform the travel experience and deliver innovative products and services”.
The 306-seat newcomer features the Delta One suite and Delta Premium Select cabin and is the first long-haul aircraft to feature next-generation 2Ku internet connectivity. It will fly mainly on trans-Pacific routes, initially to Tokyo-Narita, Seoul and Beijing.
All 32 redesigned Delta One suites offer full-height doors for privacy, flat-bed seats with direct aisle access, a standard among Delta’s international widebodies, plus more personal stowage and large in-flight entertainment screens.
In the Delta Premium Select cabin, passengers have up to 38in of pitch, up to 19in of width and up to 7in of recline, along with adjustable legrests and headrests. There is free seatback in-flight entertainment on high definition screens throughout the aircraft.
Other features include in-seat power ports at every row and high capacity overhead bins, while passengers on the A350 also have larger windows and optimised cabin pressure, temperature and humidity to help them to feel more refreshed after long-haul flights.
