Delta Airlines

Delta passengers get laidback flights

Work has begun to upgrade Delta Airlines' fleet of A330 planes. Among the list of improvements, the planes are being fitted with seats that fully recline to become flat beds. The full flat-bed seats, which are 6 ft 5" long, are on offer to Business Elite class passengers but improvements are also being made to the Economy and Economy Comfort cabins.

The first of this fleet to receive the overhaul has been completed and flew to Amsterdam last Wednesday from Detroit. 31 more planes are being revamped. The A330s, which each currently carry up to 298 passengers, are the last of Delta's fleet to get the new flat beds.

Glen Hauenstein, an executive vice president in Delta's Marketing, network and revenue management department, said; "A restful night's sleep is critical to our customers who are flying halfway around the world and we are thrilled that the full flat-bed seats will soon be offered throughout our international fleet, providing them with a more relaxing and productive journey." He went on to explain that once work is completed on this last batch of planes, Delta will be able to boast it's "the only U.S. carrier to offer a full flat-bed seat with direct aisle access across the entire widebody international fleet."

The bed-seats will be arranged in a herringbone formation with some facing windows and others angled toward each other. Meanwhile in Economy slim-line seats are being fitted to allow extra personal space and leg room for passengers. The continuing work is part of a $3 billion investment Delta has made into its 'customer experience'.
