Delta Air Lines is set to debut the first of its retrofitted B777s featuring all four cabin classes on select transpacific and transatlantic flights from 1 March.
The carrier announced last year that it would carry out renovations of its entire 777 fleet to include the Delta One Suite (pictured) and Delta Premium Select while maintaining nine-abreast seating in the Main Cabin. Now, the airline has added Delta Comfort+ to four of the aircraft, while the remaining 14 will be retrofitted throughout 2019.
Main Cabin seats will be 18.5 inches wide – the widest available on Delta’s international fleet.
The first 777 initially refitted with Delta Premium Select and Delta One Suites in addition to the Main Cabin debuted on the Detroit-Beijing route in July 2018.
The modified 777 will initially be used on the Minneapolis/St Paul-Tokyo-Haneda, Atlanta-Tokyo-Narita, Minneapolis/St Paul-Paris-CDG and Atlanta-Paris-CDG routes from 1 March, followed by the Minneapolis/St Paul-Seoul flights from 1 April and Los Angeles-Sydney services from 5 April.
In addition to the four seat products, the aircraft offers passengers seat-back entertainment screens, full-spectrum LED ambient lighting and Gogo Ku wifi connectivity with free mobile messaging.
