Delta Completes Full Flat-bed Installations on Boeing 777, 767-400s

Delta Air Lines has completed the installation of full flat-bed seats in the BusinessElite cabins of all Boeing 777 and 767-400ER type aircraft.

The last of 18 Boeing 777 aircraft, each with 45 BusinessElite seats per plane, and all 21 Boeing 767-400ER aircraft with 40 BusinessElite seats per plane have been retrofitted with full flat-bed seats. Each seat includes direct aisle access.

“A full flat-bed seat with direct aisle access is a premium cabin feature that’s important to our customers and we’re delivering," said Tim Mapes, senior vice president – Marketing. “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."

Progress continues as Delta’s first Boeing 767-300ER will receive its scheduled full flat-bed in August. To date, more than 25% of Delta’s widebody international fleet has received the upgrade and the airline’s entire widebody international fleet of more than 140 aircraft will be flying with full flat-bed seats in BusinessElite by the end of 2013.
