Delta adds auto check-in and updates dining experience


Delta Air Lines has added automatic check-in to the Fly Delta app to streamline the check-in experience for customers.

The new functionality, available on the latest version of the app, automatically checks in eligible customers 24 hours prior to their scheduled departure.

Customers receive an alert via email or push notification, and their boarding pass is there along with all the tools needed for their trip.

Once inside the app, customers can add checked bags, change seats and purchase upgrades – all from the “Today” mode.

The airline is also elevating its in-flight dining experience by introducing new services throughout the aircraft on international flights.

Early next year, customers in the Delta One cabin flying to select European destinations from New York-JFK and Atlanta, including London Heathrow, will be able to pre-select their meal to ensure they receive their first choice on board.

These enhancements will be followed by upgraded meals and service-ware in the main cabin, starting mid-2018.

Following the initial launch of pre-select meals, Delta plans to expand the service firstly to Delta One customers on all international routes, both outbound and inbound to the United States, and then to all passengers in the Delta Premium Select cabin by the end of next year.
