Delta placed orders for 25 Airbus A350-900 widebody aircraft for delivery beginning in mid-2017, half of a larger 50-plane order that includes 25 A330-900s, however there are some confirmed details from Delta sources that these new planes will feature a new class of service called Premium Economy.

This latest announcement comes after the other Airbus news where Delta Air Lines Is Ordering New Airbus A321 Aircraft.

The name isn’t finalized yet either but could be a play on their Comfort Plus cabin, so could be something along the lines of  Comfort Premium.

The new Premium Economy product will be a cabin in between the Main Cabin and Delta One on international flights, targeting business and leisure customers who are seeking additional space and amenities on Delta’s longest flights.

Premium Economy will feature a new seat similar to a domestic first class seat with 38 inches of pitch and enhanced onboard service amenities. The actual details of the seats, meals, and onboard amenities are still in the works right now.

The product will debut on Delta’s Airbus A350s that begin delivering in late 2017, followed closely by the Boeing 777 fleet. Ultimately, the product will be rolled out on additional widebody fleets.

Bottom Line

I’m excited to see Delta roll out their new Premium Economy product on the A350 and can’t wait to hear the new details of it as well.
