@Delta’s Narrow Wide-Body, the Domestic 767-300

Recently I had the opportunity to fly on what I like to refer to (affectionately, of course) as a narrow wide-body. Delta has a handful of Boeing 767-300 (not ER or LR, mind you) that have their first class in a 2x2x2 configuration. These seats are standard recline only, not angled or lie-flat as other … Continue reading “@Delta’s Narrow Wide-Body, the Domestic 767-300”

The napkin ring went from being a paper hoop to a nice hexagonal metal ring, and the mugs and glasses are markedly nicer than before. Another nice touch was that the old salt and … Continue reading “New @Delta Serviceware by Alessi // @Matteo_Alessi”

The Return of Free Meals! #KeepClimbing, @Delta

There has been a lot of talk recently about Delta bringing back free meals to the economy cabin for transcontinental (JFK-LAX & JFK-SFO, for now) flights, and it has raised questions about customer loyalty, profitability, and if other airlines (United and American) will take note of this and do the same.
