Delta is giving its business class passengers, the First class treatment. The airline is introducing “suites” complete with sliding doors for total privacy to their Delta One business class seats. This change will make Delta the first airline to introduce such a feature to business class, as other airlines only offer this level of luxury to First Class passengers. The Delta One suite is scheduled to debut in autumn next year.
Other business class upgrades include memory foam cushions, 18-inch high resolution entertainment monitors, plenty of storage and customizable ambient lighting. Delta wants to offer their customers the best possible business class experience, and with the addition of suites, Delta One is certainly offering more bang for your buck than other carriers.
“Delta constantly listens to customers and responds with products that deliver what they want. After setting the standard with the introduction of full flat-bed seats with direct aisle access in 2008, Delta is again elevating the international business class experience,” said Tim Mapes, Delta’s Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. “Added comfort and privacy are important to business travelers, and that drove the design of the all-new Delta One suite.”
Delta One already features full flat-bed seats with direct aisle access not to mention luxe trimmings like meals curated by top chefs, wine pairings by Delta’s Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson, Westin Heavenly In-Flight Bedding, noise-canceling headsets, TUMI amenity kits featuring Kiehl’s Since 1851 premium skincare, and in-flight loungewear on select flights.
The Delta One suite will debut on Delta’s first Airbus A350 which is slated to begin service in fall 2017. Each aircraft will feature 32 suites. Later, the Delta One suite will be progressively introduced to Delta’s Boeing 777 fleet.
