San Ramon, California (EastBayDaily) — Delta Air Lines’ recent upgrades to its international wide body fleet has helped spark renewed interest in the company’s long-haul routes amongst high-end travelers, says online travel specialists Lets Fly Cheaper.com. Delta’s initiative now sees full flat-bed seats with direct-aisle access as the new norm for its BusinessElite passengers on all overseas routes, a first for US carriers.
“The feedback we’ve been getting from clients who’ve experienced Delta’s improved business class is extremely positive,” says Mo Sayid, President of Lets Fly Cheaper.com. “It’s not just the convenience of these new full flat-bed seats that travelers are raving about – now you can relax without fear of being disturbed by your neighbor wanting access to the aisle. It’s the additional comfort of being able to stretch out entirely on long-haul trips, something that was previously usually only available in first-class.”
The changes incorporated by Delta were part the company’s largest fleet interior modification in over 10 years. Completed in 2014, the modifications involved the majority of Delta’s wide body Airbus and Boeing aircraft. In addition to the improved seating, Sayid indicates that Lets Fly Cheaper.com’s long-haul clients are also happy with other business class initiatives Delta has instigated in recent years, including state-of-the-art on-demand entertainment systems; international Wi-Fi services; in-flight amenity kits including skincare, toothbrushes and ear-plugs, along with other useful travel items; and menus from some of the world’s leading chefs.
“We make a point of asking our many repeat customers what they like, and what they don’t like, about the many flight carriers we work with,” says Sayid. “Delta’s new long-haul offerings are mentioned frequently, and not just by business travelers. Our many leisure travelers are also enjoying Delta’s fleet, especially on those traditionally exhausting long-haul routes to places like Europe and Asia.”
