Delta Air Lines announced ambitions to redefine international business class travel with the introduction of the Delta One suite, the first business class cabin to feature a sliding door at each suite. The Delta One suite will debut on Delta’s first Airbus A350, due to enter service in fall 2017. Each aircraft will feature 32 suites.

The Delta One suite offers each customer a private space accessed by a sliding door with thoughtfully designed personal stowage areas, an advanced in-flight entertainment system and premium trim and finishes to create an unparalleled business class experience with a comfortable, residential feel.

In addition to full flat-bed seats with direct aisle access, which the airline introduced eight years ago, the Delta One suite features:

•    A full-height door at every suite
•    Sliding privacy dividers between center suites
•    In-suite, customizable ambient lighting
•    Dedicated stowage compartments for shoes, headphones and laptops
•    Contemporary design featuring premium trim and finishes
•    Memory foam-enhanced comfort cushion
•    An 18-inch, high resolution in-flight entertainment monitor, the largest among U.S. carriers
•    A universal power outlet and high-powered USB port at every seat

"Delta constantly listens to customers and responds with products that deliver what they want. After setting the standard with the introduction of full flat-bed seats with direct aisle access in 2008, Delta is again elevating the international business class experience,” said Tim Mapes, Delta’s Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. 

Following the A350 debut, the Delta One suite will progressively roll out on Delta’s Boeing 777 fleet. Delta will be the first U.S. airline to take delivery of the A350, which will primarily serve routes between the U.S. and Asia.
