As a Platinum Medallion, I find myself getting upgrade a good amount on Delta on domestic routes that I fly out of Atlanta. However, last week I was headed to New York (JFK), and last minute we had our plane swapped for a 757-200 with lie-flat seats in BusinessElite.
Delta BusinessElite Upgrade
Even better, I was upgraded at the gate, and took my seat in 2A on this flight up to New York.
I’m a huge fan of these 757’s as the screens are huge and have tons of entertainment options to choose from. Even though it was a BusinessElite plane, the service was standard domestic, meaning just a small red blanket and pillow, and no amenity kit or noise canceling headset, but that was alright on this hour and thirty minute flight.
Getting a 757-200 with lie flat seats on a domestic route is awesome, and it was a nice surprise for me. Have you ever had an international plane swapped in on a domestic route, if so let us know which route that was on!
