Today, Delta Airlines mixed things up with what it says is the world’s “first business class cabin to feature a sliding door at each suite.” The posh new suites will debut on the new Airbus A350 and will then be rolled out onto Delta’s existed Boeing 777s.
The first flights will launch in fall 2017 with 32 suites up front. According to Delta, the suite will feature:
-A full-height door at every suite
-Sliding privacy dividers between center suites
-In-suite, customizable ambient lighting
-Dedicated stowage compartments for shoes, headphones and laptops
-Contemporary design featuring premium trim and finishes
-Memory foam-enhanced comfort cushion
-An 18-inch, high resolution in-flight entertainment monitor, the largest among U.S. carriers
-A universal power outlet and high-powered USB port at every seat
So why is this news? If what Delta says is true, these suite seats will cost the same as standard business class seats. One would then guess that other airlines will follow suit, and we all win. Flying in style and comfort, when you can, is the only way to go.
