Delta is also expanding the availability of Delta One seats on its Airbus A350-900 aircraft, adding eight more lie-flat seats to each plane.
Delta Air Lines customers may notice a difference in some first class cabins as the airline rolls out a refreshed look on some aircraft this month.
The carrier is outfitting its Boeing 737-800 aircraft with its newest First Class seat, complete with more storage and a sturdier tray table, according to Delta. The airline first introduced the new seat on its A321neo aircraft in 2022.
In addition, Delta will refresh some Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin seats also on select Boeing 737-800 aircraft, including a new 10-inch Panasonic seatback screen and touchless features in bathrooms.
“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,” Mauricio Parise, the vice president of brand experience, said in a statement. “Enhancing our aircraft interiors with select retrofits will give customers more premium options to choose from.”
The airline has also refreshed its Boeing 767-400ER aircraft and plans to introduce additional cabin upgrades to select Boeing 757 and wide-body aircraft “in the near future.”
Beyond the newer cabins, Delta is expanding the availability of Delta One seats on its Airbus A350-900 aircraft, adding eight more lie-flat seats to each plane. Going forward, each of these aircraft will include 40 Delta One suites, 40 Delta Premium Select cabin seats, 36 Delta Comfort+ seats, and 159 Main Cabin seats.
The expanded premium planes are expected to roll out starting this summer.
The changes come as Delta overhauled its SkyMiles loyalty program, walking back some of the more dramatic changes after it received backlash from customers. Now, Delta customers will be required to earn at least 5,000 MQDs to achieve the company’s Silver Medallion status. The airline will also limit access to its Delta Sky Club airport lounges.
Delta isn’t the only United States carrier to debut a new look this week. Southwest also just revealed a brand-new interior cabin for new Boeing 737-800 and 737 MAX-8 aircraft for 2025, including slimmer seats, an adjustable headrest, USB-A and USB-C outlets, and personal device holders in lieu of seatback screens.
