While I do my best to only discuss important things on my blog, like the temperature of nuts on United, not getting my meal choice, and Channel 9, I think I’ll make a one time exception for Delta. 😉
They’re making an investment of a billion dollars to improve the “customer experience.” Check out their press release here. They do a great job of breaking it down, so I’ll just hit on the highlights:
- Fully flat business class seats on all their longhaul 767s, 777s, and 747s
- Personal televisions in coach on their longhaul 767s and 747s (meaning all their longhaul aircraft will have personal televisions)
- Reconfigurations of their CRJ700s to include first class
- Modifying their
ghettoNorthwest aircraft to include Delta’s “signature” (whatever that means) blue leather seats, better cabin lighting, and some other stuff
Check out the press release for full details. Overall some very nice changes, especially in terms of reducing inconsistency between the various aircraft types. Too bad the ex-Northwest birds won’t be getting pimped out technologically like most of Delta’s domestic aircraft.
