Delta BusinessElite Intercontinental

Delta Air Lines has three variations of their BusinessElite for intercontinental travel. Two are fully flat seat products, one being on the 767-400 (76D) and the other on the long range 777-200LR. Recliner seats are on other intercontinental aircraft.

This product is for the Delta main line operation, not the Northwest Airlines aircraft that have been re-branded to Delta Air Lines livery.

The new BusinessElite is a step in the right direction for Delta, with other US carriers now featuring the next generation products there is a need to keep pace with the rest of the market. No doubt we will see Delta retrofitting more aircraft with the newer BusinessElite product.

The dining experience is created by celebrity chef Michelle Bernstein, a full 5 course dining menu. Wines are selected by Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson. The menu alters with the season’s.

Each flight experience starts before you step on the aircraft with the Delta Sky Club, it all surrounds the ideal of having you arrive at the final destination rested and refreshed. The environment you travel in enables passengers to sleep (there is new bedding including full size pillows and duvet comforter), eat, work and play.

There is personal in-flight entertainment, no matter what variation of the BuinessElite product you travel on, each seat also features in-seat power supply if wanting to work or utilise your own entertainment options.

We know our elite international business customers want the ultimate in high-flying comfort that only a true full-flat seat can give
