Delta goes flat-out on Heathrow routes
FROM next summer business-class passengers on all Delta Air Lines flights between London Heathrow and the United States will be able to count on the comfort of a fully flat bed, as well as IFE via Panasonic’s eFX system.
The airline currently offers two daily non-stop flights from Heathrow to New York JFK and one to Atlanta. From next summer the routes will be served by Boeing 767-400ERs featuring a BusinessElite cabin with 40 new seats designed by Thompson Aerospace and engineered and manufactured by the UK’s Contour Premium Aircraft Seating. Each seat will recline to form a 77in-long bed, and all 40 will be arranged in one-two-one configuration giving every passenger direct aisle access. Seven of Delta’s 767-400s are to be refitted.
The new product will also feature audio/video entertainment via individual 10.6in screens, PC power and a USB port for charging other personal electronic devices, additional workspace, a reading light and shoe storage.
