ATLANTA, Nov. 3, 2014 – Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) will expand its successful customer Porsche service to New York’s LaGuardia Airport, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and Detroit Metropolitan Airport this month.

  1. The service is novel, but by no means “amazing.” If you really want to ride in a Porsche, and don’t know an owner or can’t otherwise afford to buy one, take a test drive at a dealer or save up and rent one for the day from Hertz.

    What isn’t compelling about the service is you can’t rely on it. If you have a tight connection – and you happen to get lucky and get selected – then it is great. But, there’s no assurance they’ll be able to help you.

    Compare to TG’s F transfer service in BKK. While a golf cart might not have the panache of a Panamera, that all F pax get the service is what is really compelling.
