The first newly reconfigured A330 with the flat-bed Business Elite seats is being reported to be DL flight 117 from ATL to DTW on Tuesday, April 16th, 2013. The flight on Delta’s website is still showing it will be operated by a 757-200 plane, but the seat map shows otherwise.
The seat map shows the Business Elite cabin to have a 1-2-1 configuration of 9 rows.
Back in 2011, Delta announced their plans to install flat-bed seating in the Business Elite cabin.
Delta today announced it now plans to install 34 horizontal flat-bed BusinessElite seats with direct aisle access in each of its 32 Airbus A330 aircraft by 2013. With this announcement, Delta now plans to offer full flat-bed seating in BusinessElite on all international widebody flights, or more than 150 aircraft, by 2013.
The last time I flew on one of Delta’s A330, I sat in the old pod style Business Elite seats from the Northwest days. The newly reconfigured flat-bed seats should be a huge improvement.
If you want to take a seat in Delta’s new flat-bed seat, picking DL flight 117 on Tuesday is only $61 more than coach.
Hat tip to Delta Non-Rev and for DeltaPoints for pointing it out.
