Delta Premium class to debut in 2017

The latest cabin class from Delta Air Lines will debut on select international flights in late 2017. Premium (they’re calling it Premium rather than Premium Economy) will feature:

  • More space with up to 38 inches of pitch, up to 19 inches of width and up to seven inches of recline. Delta Premium seats will also offer adjustable leg rests and head rests
  • Westin Heavenly In-Flight Blanket with pillow and a TUMI amenity kit featuring Malin+Goetz Travel Essentials
  • Pre-departure beverage service followed by fresh, seasonal menu selections presented with Alessi serviceware designed exclusively for Delta
  • A 13.3-inch, high resolution in-flight entertainment screen
  • In-seat power ports for large and small devices and storage to keep them within reach;
  • Sky Priority service, which includes faster check-in, accelerated security, priority boarding and expedited baggage service


The cabin will be introduced on the airline’s Airbus A350s entering service next year. Delta A350s will feature 48 Delta Premium seats, as well as 32 Delta One suites and 226 Main Cabin seats. Delta Premium will roll out on its Boeing 777 fleet beginning in 2018. Additional fleets may be added.

Delta will also debut the Delta One suite, the world’s first business class cabin to feature a sliding door at each suite, on its A350s in 2017. Delta One suite offers each customer an individual space accessed by a sliding door with personal stowage areas and a widescreen in-flight entertainment system.

Delta offers a range of different cabin classes, including Delta One, First Class, Delta Premium and Delta Comfort+, while Main Cabin and Basic Economy service offer value options.
