ATLANTA — All of Delta Air Lines’ Boeing 777 and 767-400ER aircraft have been upgraded to include full flat beds in the their BusinessElite cabins, the airline announced Wednesday.
Currently, more than 25 percent of Delta’s “widebody” aircraft used on international flights have received the upgrade. The entire “widebody” international fleet — made up of more than 140 aircraft — will have flat-bed seats in BusinessElite by the end of 2013, according to Delta.
“A full flat-bed seat with direct aisle access is a premium cabin feature that’s important to our customers and we’re delivering,” Tim Mapes, senior vice president – marketing, said in a news release. “Installing full flat-bed seats on each of our widebody international aircraft is a major component of the $2 billion investment Delta is making in our product and customer experience over the next two years.”
The first of Delta’s Boeing 767-300ER aircraft is scheduled to received its full flat-bed in August, the airline said.
