In the fall of 2017, Delta Airlines will launch a new, luxurious cabin experience. Delta Premium will be available on select international routes. With new and exciting amenities, Delta is bringing the ‘premium’ back to the economy experience.

“Delta Premium is Delta's latest example of paying careful attention to what customers tell us they want and responding with unique products designed to meet their individual needs,” said Tim Mapes, Delta’s Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer.

Delta Premium offers an adjustable headrest, armrest with increased pitch and a deeper recline. Through elevated service and distinguished amenities, Delta Premium is focused on design and quality.

The cabin will be introduced on the Delta’s Airbus A350s with 48 Delta Premium seats, as well as 32 Delta One suites and 226 Main Cabin seats. Delta Premium will roll out on its Boeing 777 fleet beginning in 2018.

It will be located toward the front of the plane, between Delta On and Main Cabin. You will be able to purchase Delta Premium, when available, at delta.com, the Fly Delta app, a Delta kiosk, Delta Reservations, and select other channels like travel agencies.


New seats serve as the focal point for the Delta Premium service. They come with an adjustable foldable footrest and legrest. You also get more space of up to 38 inches of pitch, up to 19 inches in width and up to 7 inches of recline.

Delta Premium treats users to a fresh beverage service followed by seasonal menu selections.
