Delta Air Lines is bringing its Delta One Suite to Africa for the first time later this year, as the airline’s upgraded Boeing 777 lands in Johannesburg.
Through the introduction of the re-fitted aircraft, Delta will also offer its premium economy cabin, Delta Premium Select, for the first time from November.
The main cabin, meanwhile, will have nine-abreast seating, rather than the industry-standard 10-abreast, making Johannesburg the only market in Africa with the 47cm-wide seats.
The Delta One suite features a full-height sliding door at every suite, with sliding privacy dividers between centre suites, 180-degree flat-bed seats, customisable ambient lighting, and a high-resolution in-flight entertainment screen.
Customers seated in Delta Premium Select will benefit from dedicated service, additional space with retractable foot and leg rests, seat-back in-flight entertainment, plated meals and distinguished amenities such as noise-cancelling headphones and a TUMI amenity kit.
