New Delta cabins roll-out on UK routes this winter

Delta will introduce its new cabin concepts on selected London routes this November, along with its updated business class seat offering.

Upgrades to the B767-400 fleet will bring all four of its branded seat products – Delta One, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin – to this aircraft, and the UK, for the first time.

The new-look aircraft are scheduled to fly from London Heathrow to Atlanta from November 13, to New York-JFK from November 17, and to Boston starting on November 21.

By summer 2020, Heathrow services to Detroit, Minneapolis and Portland will also feature the cabins.

The 767-400 refit follows the introduction of the Delta One suite and Delta Premium Select on its A330-900neo, A350-900 and B777-200 long-haul widebody fleet.

“The new Delta One seat takes inspiration from our Delta One suite to offer added privacy and comfort for our premium customers,” says Corneel Koster, Delta’s senior vice president Europe, Middle East, Africa and India.

“The new seats are based on our latest design and provide customers with new levels of choice, comfort and space in both Delta One and our brand-new Delta Premium Select cabin.

“We are confident that our customers will enjoy these redesigned cabins, which form part of our award-winning onboard offering.”

Delta has tweaked the design of the business class seat for the B767-400 aircraft although it retains the extra privacy through high sides and a divider between the two middle seats in the 1-2-1 configuration. There will be 34 seats in total.

Memory foam-cushion seats feature personal stowage areas, customisable ambient lighting and 18-inch wide, high-res IFE screens. Travellers can take advantage of free snacks and drinks from a self-service bar area.

The new international premium economy cabin, Delta Premium Select, will have 20 seats in a 2-2-2 configuration, with plated meals and TUMI branded amenity kits.
