On Tuesday (January 30, 2023), Delta Air Lines announced that this month their newest First Class seat will begin rolling out on select refreshed Boeing 737-800s.  The new seat first debuted on Delta’s Airbus A321neo in 2022, and offers more privacy and comfort, additional storage, and a sturdier tray table.  As part of the 737-800 refresh, Delta is also renewing Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin on select aircraft, which includes Panasonic 10-inch seatback screens, enabling over 1,000 hours of free premium Delta Studio onboard entertainment.  Other upgrades include refreshed lavatories with touchless features.  The airframe of select Delta Boeing 737-800s are also being upgraded with split-scimitar winglets, which will save nearly 3.3 million gallons of fuel annually.  Additionally, Delta is expanding the Delta One cabin on their Airbus A350-900 fleet.

In Tuesday’s announcement, Delta’s Vice President of Brand Experience, Mauricio Parise, said,

“Delta is committed to creating a consistent and elevated customer experience across all touchpoints of the travel journey, which includes offering the best products for our customers while in-flight.  Enhancing our aircraft interiors with select retrofits will give customers more premium options to choose from.”

These cabin upgrades are the latest step in Delta’s total commitment to elevating the guest experience at every touchpoint.  In recent years, the carrier competed noise-to-tail refreshes of their Boeing 767-400ER fleet and other widebody aircraft, including the installation of Delta Premium Select cabins.  Additional upgrades are planned for Delta’s Boeing 757 fleet.
