Delta A350 Premium Economy Under Review


Delta Air Lines is launching a new premium economy product on its A350 aircraft. We reviewed Delta Premium when it was first announced in May but I now have more details and pictures to share. Delta will debut the new Delta Premium cabin on select international flights beginning in fall 2017.

Highlights include:

  • Seats which feature 38 inches of pitch, 19 inches of width and 7 inches of recline
  • Adjustable leg and head rests
  • 13.3-inch in-flight entertainment screen
  • In-seat power points
  • Pre-departure drinks service and new menu selections in flight
  • A Westin Heavenly blanket and a TUMI amenity kit, featuring Malin+Goetz products
  • Sky Priority service which includes faster check-in and security, priority boarding and priority baggage service

The Delta Premium cabin will showcase first on its A350s, which are entering service next year. The A350 will feature 38 Delta Premium seats with a 2-4-2 configuration, 32 Delta One suites, and 226 Main Cabin seats. The carrier will also launch the Delta Premium cabin on its 777 fleet in 2018. The carrier says that “additional fleets may be added”.

Last year, American Airlines became the first of the “Big Three” US carriers to launch an AA premium economy service and will launch the product later this year. By comparison, I have reviewed the American Airlines new Super Diamond Business Class product the current American Airlines Business Class on the B777 and First on American Airlines.
