New Delta Premium Cabins to Debut in Late 2017

Delta Premium, the airline’s newest cabin class, will debut on select international flights starting at the end of 2017. 

Beginning in 2014, Delta introduced a new series of cabin experiences, allowing travelers to select a specific option tailored to their needs. Of these, Delta One, First Class, Delta Comfort+, and Delta Premium all offer additional services and extra space.

Delta’s new Premium class will have:

  • More space: 38 inches of pitch, 19 inches of width, and seven inches of recline. Delta Premium seats will also offer adjustable leg rests and head rests.
  • Westin Heavenly In-Flight Blanket with pillow and a TUMI amenity kit with Malin+Goetz Travel Essentials.
  • Pre-departure beverage and a seasonal menu presented with Alessi serviceware, designed exclusively for Delta.
  • A 13.3-inch, high resolution entertainment screen – among the largest in its class – complete with Delta Studio's library of complimentary movies, shows, and games, in addition to noise-cancelling headphones.
  • In-seat power ports for large and small devices as well as storage.
  • Sky Priority service, which includes faster check-in, accelerated security, priority boarding, and expedited baggage service.

The cabin will be introduced on the airline's Airbus A350s entering service next year. Delta A350s will have 48 Delta Premium seats, 32 Delta One suites, and 226 Main Cabin seats. Delta Premium will roll out on its Boeing 777 fleet beginning in 2018, with additional fleets possibly being added.

Delta will also debut the Delta One suite, the world's first business class cabin with a sliding door at each suite, on its A350s in 2017. The Delta One suite gives each traveler their own space accessed by a sliding door.
