Delta One: A new cabin with optimal comfort seats
American airlines have not often had the opportunity to shine by the quality of service they offer on board their planes, including in the classes of travel that would claim to be the most luxurious.
Delta was of course part of this up-to-date movement by introducing its new concept of Delta One. Its Business product has been revised, like the First or Business cabin aboard the Boeing 757s, which include the B / E Aerospace Parallel Diamonds.
Delta Airlines offers the world’s first business class consisting of suites only, each with a sliding door. This is the Delta One suite.
The new design pays particular attention to the comfort and privacy of the guest, the Delta One suite will offer each traveler a private space which will be accessed through a sliding door with private storage spaces. Each aircraft will have 32 suites, equipped with an advanced inflight entertainment system and top quality finishes.
The new cabin debuted with the company’s first A350. DAL is the first in the United States to receive such an aircraft model, which will primarily serve routes between that country and Asia.
The new cabin features reclining sleeper seats with direct access to the corridors. Delta is always attentive to customer requests and responds with products that meet their needs. Having set the standard with the introduction of reclining seats with direct aisle access, it once again opens up new horizons in the international business class experience.
Delta One: An individual suite in Business class
Delta Air Lines has unveiled what it presents as first business class entirely organized in private suites with sliding doors.
The Delta One suites are offered on the company’s new A350s, which should enter service next fall, and will number 32 per aircraft. Delta is the first American company to offer A350 flights that will link the United States and Asia.
In addition to sleeper seats, the suites offer a customizable lighting system, storage compartments for shoes, helmets and other computers. Not to mention an 18-inch high-resolution screen, a USB port and a universal power outlet.
After the A350, the Delta One suites are offered on the company’s Boeing 777 fleet.

Finally, the one that completes the American trio, United, also unveiled its plans in June by launching its new product “Polaris” which will be launched at the end of the year.
The seats available in the Delta One cabins are largely innovative insofar as it benefits from the unique option of having a sliding door on the aisle side: an attribute that was until then only reserved for Firsts (Emirates, Etihad, Singapore Airlines, etc.) .
The cabin layout is a classic 1 – 2 – 1. In this type of configuration, it is always difficult to place the passengers in the middle as some layouts position them too close to each other.
Delta One: selection of meals around the world
As temperatures cool, airline Delta Air Lines is beefing up its menus with a selection of fresh, seasonal produce, and expanding its meal selection program to allow Delta One Business Class customers to choose in advance regionally inspired meals, designed by local chefs.
Following the success of its initial deployment in certain markets, the American company has extended its meal selection program to all Delta One flights to and from airports in the United States. All Delta One customers traveling between Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the United States can choose their menu in advance. Business travelers will receive an email from Delta three days before their flight, inviting them to select the meal of their choice. Participation in the program only requires a valid email address, listed in the customer’s SkyMiles account or in the booking document.
Delta One customers will be able to enjoy delicious dishes, with on the menu, braised prime rib, roast chicken breast or soy-glazed cod. On select flights to Europe, menus will feature creations developed by Delta’s team of culinary experts or an airline partner chef, including Atlanta’s Linton Hopkins, winner of the James Beard Award, chefs at Danny Meyer’s Union Square Events restaurants in New York and culinary duo Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo from Los Angeles.
This move is part of the SkyTeam alliance company’s ongoing efforts to enhance and redefine the on-board dining experience, with fresh, regional and seasonal produce and a variety of beverage options.
Delta also offers new options for international customers who take a domestic flight: the company has updated the Flight Fuel menu available in Main Cabin on certain flights over 1500km (900 miles) in North America (the Fresh Flight Fuel options). are for sale on flights over 1400 miles in North America. Boxes of non-perishable snacks are available from 900 miles). The revised menu includes a new selection of paid meals including a new breakfast meal set.
These culinary treats are an integral part of Delta’s multi-billion dollar investment to improve the experience on board its aircraft. In recent years, the airline has greatly improved the Main Cabin experience, with free meals on select transcontinental flights, free mobile messaging, free in flight entertainment, new choice of Main Cabin snacks, sparkling wine, Wi-Fi access on almost all flights and revised paid Flight Fuel menu.
The onboard experience on Delta One flights has recently been enriched with new Delta One gourmet menus created by Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo for flights departing from LAX, new TUMI comfort kits featuring Kiehl products, and a service collection tableware signed Alessi.
