Delta introduces flat-bed seats on US-Germany flights
Delta Air Lines now offers more than 3,000 fully flat-bed seats each week on its services between the US and Germany.
Delta Air Lines has added fully flat-bed seats to its BusinessElite cabin on all services between Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and Dusseldorf International Airport.
In total, 3,000 flat-bed seats will be available each week on Delta flights between the United States and Germany.
Perry Cantarutti, Delta’s Senior Vice President Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “Germany is an important part of our transatlantic network and I am delighted that we can now offer our frequent business travellers full flat-bed seats on all our services from Germany, including Dusseldorf.
“The design of Delta’s new BusinessElite seats optimises each passenger’s space, giving them privacy to work or relax in order to arrive at their destination ready for a day’s business.”
The forward-facing seats convert to a 180-degree bed and offer direct aisle access thanks to the 1-2-1 configuration. Each seat features a 10.6-inch screen, an electrical power socket and a USB port.
If you are committed to enhancing the onboard passenger experience, make sure you attend the FTE Up in the Air conference, which will take place at our flagship event, FTE Global 2014, in Las Vegas from 24-26 September 2014. The theme of the event is 'Redefining the end-to-end passenger experience'.
The Up in the Air conference will focus on all things in-flight – including IFE&C, passenger and crew connectivity, cabin design, passenger comfort, personalisation and ancillary revenue generation – and we look forward to playing an important role in shaking up the passenger experience in the air, which has evolved very little in the last 20 years, unlike on the ground.
