Delta announced yesterday that it will add their Business Elite flat-bed onto four daily flights to New York (JFK) from Los Angeles during the summer. That means you have a 4 in 7 chance of getting onto a plane with flat-bed seats. If you don’t get the flight with truly flat-bed, don’t worry, their 757 Business Elite product is pretty good as you can see in my review of the 757 Business Elite service from New York to Atlanta.
Delta Domestic Routes With Flat-Bed Business Elite
We’ve been keeping tabs on Delta’s domestic routes that offer Business Elite Flat-Bed. It turns out there are quite a few. It will be interesting to see if the new LAX to JFK routes takes the flat-bed service from any of the other domestic destinations. Here’s a list of Delta’s domestic routes that I’m aware have offered flat-bed Business Elite service in the past or currently offer the service. The available flights with flat-beds will vary by day of travel.
Delta Announces 4x Daily Flat-Bed Service Between LAX and JFK
The Business Elite product will begin 4x daily service to New York starting this summer. You can already book these flights, and coach is not a terribly high price. If you book coach and are hoping for an upgrade, just know that this is a very Delta SkyMiles Elite heavy route, so competition for the complimentary upgrade will be high.
The first Business Elite flat-bed flight leaves LAX at 6:30 AM and arrives into New York at 3:05 PM.
The next Business Elite flat-bed flight leaves LAX at 8:30 AM and arrives into New York at 5:10 PM.
The next Business Elite flat-bed flight leaves LAX at 11:15 AM and arrives into New York at 7:55 PM.
The final Business Elite flat-bed flight of the day leaves LAX at 9:30 PM and arrives into New York at 6:00 AM.
The new routes appear to be centered from coast to coast or between major hubs. The only domestic route that appears to lose the 767 with flat-bed seats is Salt Lake City, but I can’t confirm this with certainty yet.
By selecting a domestic route and flight with flat-bed Business Elite service, you can greatly increase your chances of an upgrade and enjoy the flight in one of Delta’s newest Business Elite seats.
