Delta Air Lines has full flat-beds---be comfy while flying


One of the things which we always require when travelling to the United States and any other place where the time it takes to get there reaches ten hours or more, is for you to have a nice, comfy seat.

Enough leg room, nice comfortable leather seats--these are always a must when travelling to the United States.

It is always a great pleasure to travel first-class. 

That's why, I always travel Delta Airlines. 

By the way, great news. Delta Airlines has completed the renovation of all their sixteen Boeing 747-400 aircraft to include FULL FLAT BED SEATS in the Business Elite cabin.

FULL Flat beds means more personal space and more arm and leg room. Plus, of course, individual in-seat entertainment throughout the economy cabin. For a view of their nice full flatbeds, check this out.

Nice.

Delta airlines flies daily between Manila and New York's JFK airport via the Tokyo-Narita hub and five times weekly service to Detroit via Nagoya using the latest 747-400 aircraft. At the Narita hub, customers can connect to eight other gateways in addition to JFK. 

So, if you intend to spend your vacation in the Philippines, fly Delta Airlines.

BusinessElite

Each 747 has 48 BusinessElite full flat-bed seats featuring direct aisle access for every seat, USB port and a personal LED reading lamp. In addition, each seat comes with a 15.4 inch widescreen video monitor with instant access to more than 1,000 entertainment options­ – including more than 300 films, 88 hours of television programming, nearly 100 hours of premium programming from HBO and Showtime, 27 video games and more than 5,000 digital music tracks.

“Our best customers want a full flat-bed seat with direct aisle access and the new BusinessElite configuration of our 747s provides them with an industry leading experience as they fly across the globe,” said Jeff Bernier, Managing Director, Asia Pacific.  “The days of having to step over a sleeping customer in the seat next to you are over. These upgrades will make the 747 the premier aircraft in our international fleet and customers will immediately notice the improved experience.”

“We are pleased to deliver this news to our customers in Philippines” said Steven Crowdey, General Manager, Philippines, Australia, and Micronesia. “The product enhancement is part of Delta’s $3 billion investment in improved global products, services, and airport facilities.”

Economy Comfort

Like all of Delta’s international fleet, the 747s feature the Economy Comfort product which includes up to four additional inches of legroom for 35 full inches of seat pitch and 50 percent more recline. Delta’s 747 aircraft each have 42 Economy Comfort seats.

In addition to more leg room and recline, customers seated in Economy Comfort will enjoy priority boarding and complimentary spirits throughout the flight. These benefits are in addition to Delta's standard international Economy class amenities, including complimentary meals, beer, wine, entertainment, blankets and pillows.

Economy

Changes to the Economy cabin are immediately evident as Delta transitions to new seats, providing customers with additional knee clearance.  All seats feature a headrest with adjustable wings, height and tilt, USB power and an industry-leading nine-inch touchscreen featuring personal on-demand entertainment including the same extensive library of entertainment choices as those offered in BusinessElite.
