Delta Air Lines to introduce 'Economy Comfort' on entire mainline fleet

21-Oct-2011 10:17 AM

Delta Air Lines announced (20-Oct-2011) 'Economy Comfort' – a premium economy cabin product launched on long-haul international flights earlier in 2011 – will be added to its entire mainline fleet of more than 550 aircraft, in addition to more than 250 two-class regional jets. The product will be installed in the first three-to-five rows of the economy cabin by removing a negligible number of seats from the current cabin configuration on all of Delta's domestic B767, B757, B737, MD88, MD90, DC9, A320 and A319 aircraft, and all two-class regional jets including the CRJ900, CRJ700, E170 and E175 aircraft types by summer 2012. The breadth of this installation means flights to Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and northern South America will also offer the Economy Comfort product. The first of these converted aircraft will be a B757, which will enter service in Nov-2011. [more - original PR]
