Delta Adding Premium Select to trans-Atlantic Routes

Yesterday we wrote how Delta One Business Class Expands to More US Domestic Routes including from New York (JFK) to San Diego, Seattle, and Las Vegas, as they compete with JetBlue Mint on these routes. However, after thinking, Delta has several frequencies on these routes, so it was unclear where these Boeing 757-200’s with Delta One were coming from.

It appears, Delta is pulling their Boeing 757-200’s with Delta One off several trans-Atlantic routes, and these will be moved over for transcontinental flying. Additionally, I would assume New York (JFK) to Los Angeles and San Francisco go to mainly if not all Boeing 767’s, though this isn’t confirmed yet.

Delta will then be adding domestic Boeing 757-200’s to some trans-Atlatnic routes and rebranding the premium cabin as Premium Select, similar to what is offered on the A350. On these routes, they’ll sell Main Cabin, Comfort +, and Premium Select.

Here’s a sample of some trans-Atlantic routes selling Premium Select:

New York (JFK) to Reykjavik, Iceland:

New York (JFK) to Shannon, Ireland:

New York (JFK) to Ponta Delgada – Azores, Portugal:

However, most trans-Atlatnic routes aren’t, and are still offering Delta One Business Class

New York (JFK) to Dublin:

New York (JFK) to London-Heathrow:

What are your thoughts of Delta adding Premium Select to several of their trans-Atlantic routes? Feel free to share your thoughts below.

  1. Fly JFK – SFO semi-regularly, I’m currently shopping for December flights and noticed that route is almost all 757 for most of December. It seems to be just the “rush” hour flights of 3 and 5 PM that are 767 along with one Saturday morning flight

  2. This is a very big change! They’re removing business class from TATL routes and replacing it with premium economy. That product will still be superior to the competition but not superior enough to command that kind of premium! So this is essentially going to be Hawai’i service (ex-wide bodies) over the pond. It’s smart because they stay competitive in either thin or very crowded markets but they have to rethink their pricing.

  3. You may benefit from the use of a spell checker. You wrote ‘Atlantic’ a number of times as ‘Atlatnic’.
    Specific to the news addressed in the article, it appears the cost is not in line with the product being offered. These 757-200’s are obviously very old as well, hopefully to be replaced by A321 neos in the not too distant future.
