Living the suite life just got easier. The leading names in air travel, such as Singapore Airlines and Etihad, already feature super-private suites in the first class cabin. With the launch of Delta One, Delta is becoming the first airline to offer an all-suite cabin for business class travellers.
The new Delta business class suites put the emphasis on customer comfort and privacy, offering each traveller their own personal space accessed by a sliding door. The suites feature thoughtfully designed personal stowage areas, an advanced in-flight entertainment system, and full flat-bed seats with direct aisle access. Other perks include:
- A full-height door at every suite
- Sliding privacy dividers between centre suites
- In-suite, customisable ambient lighting
- Dedicated stowage compartments for shoes, headphones, and laptops
- Contemporary design featuring premium trim and finishes
- Memory foam-enhanced comfort cushion
- An 18-inch, high resolution in-flight entertainment monitor
- A universal power outlet and high-powered USB port at every seat
Along with all the brand new benefits, Delta One travellers can expect the standard services they’ve come to know and love from the airline. The list includes chef-curated meals, wine pairings by Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson, Westin Heavenly In-Flight Bedding, noise-cancelling headsets, TUMI amenity kits featuring Kiehl’s skincare products, and in-flight loungewear on select flights.
“Delta constantly listens to customers and responds with products that deliver what they want. After setting the standard with the introduction of full flat-bed seats with direct aisle access in 2008, Delta is again elevating the international business class experience,” said Tim Mapes, Delta’s Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. “Added comfort and privacy are important to business travellers, and that drove the design of the all-new Delta One suite.”
It’s not the insane luxury of Etihad’s The Residence cabin, but it’s certainly more affordable. The new Delta One business class suites will debut on the airline’s upcoming A350 aircraft that are slated for delivery next year.
