On a recent trip from Los Angeles (LAX) to New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK), I decided to use a Regional Upgrade certificate to confirm into the Delta One business class cabin. Surprisingly, my flight had upgrade space available at time of booking and I was instantly confirmed into 2A.

Delta operates 10 daily flights between Los Angeles and New York’s John F. Kennedy, and they now fly exclusively their 767-300ER aircraft on this route, offering direct aisle access from every seat in Delta One. As a result their flights between New York (JFK) and San Francisco are all on 757’s.

Transcontinental flights come with the same swag that international Delta One flights offer including a Westin Heavenly pillow and blanket, noise canceling headphones and a Tumi amenity kit.

Delta has recently rolled out pre-select meal options on all their flights in Delta One/First Class. I was able to pre-select my meal for this flight.

Breakfast choices included scrambled eggs, french toast, or granola. I opted for the granola which was served with a side of greek yogurt.

Bottom Line:

Overall, I was very pleased with the flight with the Delta One cabin and service.

Competition on this route is tough, as American flies their three cabin A321 between LAX and JFK, JetBlue offers A321 Mint service, Alaska flies between the two cities, and United dominates the market from Newark to Los Angeles, after they pulled out of JFK all together.
