Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) became the first North American operator of the state-of-the-art Airbus A350 Thursday, continuing its ongoing effort to transform the travel experience and deliver innovative products and services for customers.
The 306-seat A350-900 redefines the international onboard experience with the award-winning Delta One suite and Delta Premium Select cabin. It´s also the first long-haul aircraft to feature next generation 2Ku internet connectivity, and will fly primarily on routes across the Pacific, initially to Tokyo-Narita, Seoul and Beijing.
The 32 redesigned Delta One suites will offer customers a private, personal experience, with a full-height door at every suite for enhanced privacy and comfort. Every suite offers a full flat-bed seat with direct aisle access — a standard among Delta´s international widebody aircraft — as well as more personal stowage and large in-flight entertainment screens.
