Delta Air Lines invites international customers to stretch out and lie flat, as the first U.S. airline to announce fully-horizontal personal sleeper suites in BusinessElite. Delta will introduce seats by Contour Premium Aircraft Seating in early 2008, when the airline takes delivery of two new Boeing 777 Long Range (LR) aircraft. The sleeper suites will also feature Delta’s industry-leading entertainment system offering on-demand, digital video and music at every suite.

Delta becomes the first U.S. carrier to offer sleeper suites. It was time… So now we can sleep well when we will travel with Delta 😉

Beginning in fall 2008, Delta will add a sleeper seat to the rest of its 777 fleet. The airline also expects to offer a lie-flat option on its 767 aircraft. These modifications are expected to be complete by 2010.

Customers flying in economy class on Delta’s newly reconfigured 767-400 and 777-200 aircraft will catch a glimpse of the future of Delta’s on-board entertainment with award-winning, on-demand entertainment at every seat as featured in the BusinessElite cabin and select long-haul domestic flights in the United States. On all Delta international flights, customers in economy class will enjoy Delta’s new all-leather seats, enhanced food offerings, a complimentary cocktail with each meal, and soon a complimentary amenity kit featuring eye shades and ear plugs for more personal comfort and privacy.

Delta’s fully-horizontal personal suite will feature:

  • A reclining seat that adjusts to multiple comfortable positions, including a completely flat surface offering travelers a 6-foot 3-inch bed;
  • A privacy screen incorporating pull out meal table, fold-out video monitor, integrated footrest and personal stowage compartment for bags, shoes or blankets
  • Immediate access to the aisle so customers don’t have to disturb another passenger when exiting their seat
  • No tag for this post.
