Delta has announced that their new flights between Boston to San Francisco; and Washington (DCA) to Los Angeles will be operated by their Boeing 757-200 aircraft and will feature 16 Delta One Business Class seats along with the same transcontinental service already offered on their flights from New York (JFK) to Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Per Delta,

Delta will begin daily nonstop service from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) on April 24 and nonstop service from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to San Francisco International Airport (SFO) on June 8. Flights between DCA-LAX and BOS-SFO will be operated as transcontinental flights, and include the Delta One cabin featuring full flat-bed seats, as well as enhanced amenities throughout the Boeing 757-200 aircraft.

In Los Angeles, Delta One customers will have access to the exclusive Delta One at LAX check-in.

In addition to the Main Cabin meal service, customers seated in Delta Comfort+ will enjoy a pre-arrival snack basket, complimentary beer, wine and spirits for customers 21+, and a mid-service Greek frozen yogurt bar. Delta Comfort+ customers will also receive a sleep kit with eyeshade, earplugs and a dental kit, as well as an individual bottled water service.

Delta’s Los Angeles – Washington-DCA flights will operate once daily and flights between Boston – San Francisco flights will operate twice a day.

Bottom Line:

Delta is really trying to enhance their network and product, including with their new Terminals at Los Angeles International Airport, so it’s so surprise to see the DCA-LAX be added. Delta is also a key player in Boston, so BOS-SFO is another welcome addition.

Similar to their transcontinental flights from New York (JFK) to LAX/SFO, Diamond and Platinum Medallions can use either Regional or Global upgrades to upgrade to Delta One, as well as mileage upgrades. For those looking to purchase a Delta One ticket outright, I was able to find seats from $598 each-way, which is reasonable for a 6 hour Delta One flight.

Delta did announce Complimentary Main Cabin Meals on Transcon Flights, and both these routes will be offering these new meals as well.
