What It’s Like to Fly Delta Business Class

What is it like to fly business class with Delta Airlines? It’s a lot different than it used to be, there’s no doubt about that. The first thing you’re likely to notice about what Delta calls their Delta One service is that the seating arrangements are a lot different then anything they’ve used in the past. There are also other things that set this class apart from you’re basic economy class, but since seats are usually the topic of discussion on airliners, it’s important to start there.

When you fly business class on Delta, you might have access to your own little cubicle in the air, although Delta calls them suites. While they’re not closed off, there is a partition that separates each one so you have a little bit more privacy than you might expect. The thing that really makes this innovative is that you have a seat that sets on one end of this partition and the seat is actually fairly roomy. It also reclines. On the other end of the partition is a bed that lies flat where you can stretch out and catch a few winks if you have the time. In between the two, there’s plenty of space where you can set up your laptop or even put pen-to-paper if you like to do things in a more old-school fashion.

There are also fold out tables that you can bring out on both sides so that you have some flexibility in how you decide to work. As you might expect, there are plenty of places to plug in all of your devices so you won’t have to worry about dead batteries while you’re in the air. All in all, the seating arrangement is far more comfortable than you might expect and it allows you to work with relative ease. Whenever you’re ready to stretch out, it gives you the opportunity to do that without feeling like someone is staring at you and it’s comfortable enough that you can actually get some sleep.

When it comes to the food, you might actually think that you’re on a first-class flight instead of flying on business class. All of the food is prepared by a chef and if you weren’t so crazy about the menu you had on your last flight, this could change your opinion about eating food prepared on an airliner. In addition to the nice menu selection, there are plenty of selections involving beer, wine and spirits so you can relax and enjoy part of your flight as well.

Even though it’s business class, Delta provides you with an amenity kit full of soaps, lotions and other personal care products. That’s because their Delta One service is typically provided for international flights, meaning that you’re likely to be in the air for at least 10 to 12 hours, if not longer. The amenity kits give you an opportunity to freshen up before you land. It also makes it easier that all of their business class seating provides you with direct access to the aisle and a washroom that’s actually got enough room for you to go freshen up without bruising your elbows or practically knocking yourself out while you’re trying to move around in there.

When you’re in the air for the better part of a day, you might get to the point where you really don’t want to stare at the computer screen anymore and you can only sleep for so long. Delta has that covered too. They have incorporated an extra large screen into each seating assignment along with noise cancelling headphones. You can choose to watch virtually anything you want, as the most popular movie and television choices can be streamed directly to your screen. That way, you’re not being bored out of your mind while you’re in the air for hours on end.

There’s no doubt that Delta has changed a lot when it comes to their business class. There is also no doubt that it comes at a price. As is usually the case, it all depends on how far you’re traveling. Some destinations allow you to enjoy Delta’s new business class for about $5,000 for a round trip ticket. In other cases, that price can be closer to $20,000. It’s all contingent on where you’re taking off from and where you’re landing.
