Delta Air Lines revamps aircraft interior
Tuesday 14, January 2014
Delta said on Wednesday that its project to revamp its US aircraft interiors will cover 225 planes. Passengers will have electrical power at every seat, and most of them are getting bigger overhead bins and new seats.
Delta will be able to fit more seats onto many of those planes by using "slim-line" seats that have a smaller, lighter-weight frame from front to back, including about 19 more seats on its Boeing 757-200s, 6 more on its Airbus A319s, and 10 more on its A320s. Some of the 757s will have fewer business-class seats, making room for more coach seats, and remodeling will include new kitchens, called galleys that will take up less space.
According to Delta Air Lines Inc. spokesman Paul Skrbec, legroom on the planes will be about the same as now, and Airbus seats will be slightly wider. The airline is also overhauling the interiors on its Boeing 737-800s, but the number of seats will remain the same.
Delta's 757s include a mix of planes that it has always owned, and planes it got when it bought Northwest Airlines in 2008. The airline plans to spend US$770 million on the 3-year project, which begins this winter and should reach completion by the end of 2016.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
