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.
