I wrote about Delta's newly reconditioned (and reconfigured) Boeing 777-200 aircraft shortly after the aircraft was unveiled to the press. At the time we only had images of the refit courtesy of @AirlineFlyer but now Delta has supplied us with its own official photographs.
Delta showed us that it has stepped up its game when it unveiled the new Delta One Suites which are fitted to the airline's new Airbus A350 aircraft. Sadly, with just 11 A350s in the Delta fleet, the opportunities to try out the great-looking product have been few and far between....but now they're about to become a little more common.
Delta has added a couple of new restrictions to its support animal policy which, when you find out what they are, will probably leave you wondering what some passengers are trying to get away with.
On Wednesday Delta announced that it would be launching a route between Minneapolis/St. Paul and Seoul in 2019 thanks to its increasingly close ties with Korean Airlines. Now Delta has announced that 2019 will also see it launch a new service between Seattle and Osaka in conjunction with Korean Air.
Delta and Korean announced a "world-class" joint venture back in March of this year and, since then, the two airlines have been working closely to increase the number of codeshare flights offered. Now Delta is adding a new route to Seoul.
Delta and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) have confirmed that they're moving forward with the much needed $1.86bn project to bring LAX Terminals 2 & 3 into the 21st Century. As much as I love LA (and I love it a lot) not even I can call the city's primary airport anything other than a mess so the investment is very welcome.
Delta has announced that a number of its routes between the US and Europe which were originally scheduled to operate just for the summer season will now be returning for the winter 2018/19 season too. Travelers based in Los Angeles, New York, Orlando and Indianapolis will now have more European options that was originally expected.
Delta and Virgin Atlantic Increase Service Across The Atlantic (And Delta Improves Business Class...
Delta and Virgin Atlantic have just started flying some of the summer season schedules across the Atlantic and, as the airlines are very keen to stress, they're increasing the number of seats on offer and, in Delta's case, making some much needed improvement to the Business Class seats on offer on some routes.
Back in August 2016 Delta announced a number of new services out of Boston, in September of the same year it added flights to Dublin, as of 1 April this year the airline will offer Delta One service between Boston and LAX and now Delta has said that it will offer flights to Las Vegas out of Beantown.
Airlines (and especially US airlines) are slowly running out of ways to differentiate themselves from one another as each copies the other's latest fares, cabin changes and frequent flyer devaluations. In a perverse way this has actually been good news for passengers as airlines gradually turn to their soft product (service, food etc...) to try to make their offering a little more appealing than that of their competitors.
