Note: A previous version of this post called the seat a “Suite” which is incorrect.
Oh boy, the transatlantic premium cabin race sure is heating up. Last month, British Airways announced their new state-of-the-art Club Suite business class seat.
And now, Delta will have its new Delta One seats (not Suites) on all flights between New York and London and Boston and London by November 2019. These flights will be operated by Boeing 767-400s.
Delta is aggressively retrofitting its 767-400 aircraft with the new seats as well as all four of its branded seat products.
- Delta One: upgraded but not Suites (business class)
- Delta Premium Select (premium economy)
- Delta Comfort+ (extra legroom economy)
- Main Cabin
Delta’s Refurbished Boeing 767
While the 767 is an aging aircraft, Delta is committed to bringing the 767-400 version up to modern standards instead of retiring the plane. (The A350 will replace the 767-300.)
The new Delta One has a privacy partition wing but no doors. It also features more work space. Besides the new business class and a premium economy cabin, Delta announced other passenger experience upgrades. This includes a new wireless IFE system with seat-back entertainment screens in every cabin, full-spectrum LED ambient lighting, and memory foam cushions.
The current 767 isn’t a bad experience in Delta One to begin with, but this looks to be a significant premium cabin upgrade.
Additionally, Delta and partner Virgin Atlantic will start to offer new service from New York (JFK) and Boston (BOS) to London Gatwick (LGW) in the summer of 2020.
