Yesterday we wrote how Delta One Business Class Expands to More US Domestic Routes including from New York (JFK) to San Diego, Seattle, and Las Vegas, as they compete with JetBlue Mint on these routes. However, after thinking, Delta has several frequencies on these routes, so it was unclear where these Boeing 757-200’s with Delta One were coming from.
It appears, Delta is pulling their Boeing 757-200’s with Delta One off several trans-Atlantic routes, and these will be moved over for transcontinental flying. Additionally, I would assume New York (JFK) to Los Angeles and San Francisco go to mainly if not all Boeing 767’s, though this isn’t confirmed yet.
Delta will then be adding domestic Boeing 757-200’s to some trans-Atlatnic routes and rebranding the premium cabin as Premium Select, similar to what is offered on the A350. On these routes, they’ll sell Main Cabin, Comfort +, and Premium Select.
Here’s a sample of some trans-Atlantic routes selling Premium Select:
New York (JFK) to Reykjavik, Iceland:
New York (JFK) to Shannon, Ireland:
New York (JFK) to Ponta Delgada – Azores, Portugal:
However, most trans-Atlatnic routes aren’t, and are still offering Delta One Business Class
New York (JFK) to Dublin:
New York (JFK) to London-Heathrow:
What are your thoughts of Delta adding Premium Select to several of their trans-Atlantic routes? Feel free to share your thoughts below.
