Delta has announced their plans to offer premium economy cabins on their international flights. The new cabins will be called Delta Premium, and are set to roll out on some flights later in 2017.
The Delta Premium cabin will offer 38 inches of space between the seat rows, which is an increase from the 31 to 32 inches that is found in the economy cabin of its 777 planes. The seats in the cabin will also be wider at 19 inches, recline seven inches back, and offer adjustable head and foot rests.
Each seatback in the cabin will have charging ports for electronics, as well as a 13.3 inch TV screen. In addition to getting the seat comfort upgrade, the Delta Premium customers will also get to use priority check in, a beverage and food service before takeoff, and a pillow, blanket, and amenity kit for their overnight needs.
The same day that Delta announced these plans American Airlines also announced a premium international service. American’s premium service is already available on their flights between Dallas/Fort Worth and Sao Paolo, and soon they will be launching it on their Dallas to Madrid flights as well.
