More meal options are slowly coming back on Delta Air Lines. Progress is slow, as the carrier works to ensure supply chain stability and downline kitchen availability. But Premium Select and Main Cabin passengers should start to see some improvements as soon as next week.
Over the next few years the A321neo will also help Delta Air Lines launch a new premium transcon offering. The new layout offers an advantage in the highly competitive markets between New York city and Los Angeles or San Francisco, and potentially other routes as well.
Can Delta Air Lines continue to deliver outsized revenue gains in its premium cabins? The carrier appears focused on that segment, especially in the long-haul markets, even as domestic LCC competition heats up.
Delta Air Lines plans to boost its premium economy offering headed into the summer travel rebound. The carrier announced the addition of a Premium Select cabin to its 767-300s and A330s, among other improvements.

Want to fly Delta’s brand new A330neo? The first (currently) scheduled opportunity will be the July 1 departure from Seattle to Shanghai, China.
Delta passengers get to learn a new boarding process starting in January. The carrier announced a revised, “Branded Boarding” process today, aiming to “create a consistent, clear experience from booking to on board” as well as minimize crowding at the gate.
The add-on order for ten more Delta A330-900neo aircraft is not nearly as significant as a couple of the cabin amenity changes it includes.
Passengers won’t pay for more space on planes. This is the commonly accepted mantra and driving logic behind the ongoing “densification” efforts to squeeze more seats onto planes. And, for the most part, that’s proven true. A growing subset of travelers are, however, willing to pay more. Delta Air Lines’ Premium Select will expand across the widebody fleet to capture even more of that revenue.
