If you’re flying overseas for a business meeting, it’s essential that you get good sleep and have space to do your work. Delta Air Lines intends to help you with that.
The airline is introducing a new business class cabin called the Delta One suite that is designed to give international business travelers more privacy. The Delta One suite will debut in fall 2017 on Delta’s first Airbus 350, which will primarily service routes between the U.S. and Asia, and will eventually be rolled out to all of Delta’s Boeing 777 fleet.
Delta One is Delta’s advanced first-class experience primarily offered on international flights. Each Delta One suite will provide travelers with more than a dozen features to maximize their comfort and privacy, including:
- Full-height sliding doors that create a private space for travelers
- Sliding privacy dividers between center suites
- Seats that convert to lie-flat beds
- Direct aisle access from every suite
- Dedicated stowage compartments for shoes, headphones, and laptops
- In-suite, customizable ambient lighting
- Contemporary design featuring premium trim and finishes
- Memory foam cushions
- Premium in-flight entertainment system featuring an 18-inch, high resolution monitor
- Universal power outlet and high-powered USB port
- Chef-curated meals and wine pairings
- Westin Heavenly bedding
- Noise-canceling headsets
- TUMI amenity kits featuring Kiehl’s skincare products
- In-flight loungewear on select flights
Delta says it is making significant investments in its on-board customer experience. It completed installation of flat-bed seats with direct aisle access on all of its widebody aircraft servicing long-haul international flights in 2014.
U.S. airlines are competing to offer travelers the best international business class service. In June, United Airlines announced a new intercontinental service called Polaris business class that features lie-flat beds, “Do Not Disturb” signs, and other premium amenities to help passengers sleep.
