Delta announces additional expansion of first class cabins
Posted on Wednesday 22 December 2010
Delta Airlines recently announced that it would be adding more first-class seating to its domestic cabins, thanks to an accelerated interest in premium seating. This new development benefits Indian travelers who pass through the United States on business, as there will be a number of higher-class options for flights in the future.
More than 1,200 first-class seats will be implemented into about 350 Boeing and McDonnell Douglas planes. Delta also recently boosted first-class seating in its Connection regional aircraft to 60 premium seats per jet.
"Delta already offers more first-class seats than any other U.S. airline. This investment in our fleet bolsters our position as the industry leader in first-class seating and is a significant advantage for our business customers," said Glen Hauenstein of Delta in a statement. "It is part of a much larger investment - more than $2 billion - that we're making in our fleet, airports and product."
The renovations, which will increase Delta's first-class offerings by 13 percent, are scheduled to be finished by summer 2013.
