Delta will debut its latest single-aisle jet to receive a nose-to-tail interior modification this week—the first of 57 Airbus A319s to receive the state of the art upgrade.
The 132-seat aircraft is the latest in a series of upgrades coming to Delta’s domestic narrowbody fleet and follows just a few short months after Ship 3235 rejoined the flight line.
Panasonic in-flight entertainment at every seat, large pivoting overhead bins capable of accommodating 60 percent more carry-on bags, new galleys and an innovative, pod-like overhead passenger service unit highlight just a few of the new amenities designed by Zodiac Aerospace that Delta customers will enjoy. The 9 inch high definition seat-back entertainment screens offer more content than any other domestic carrier. Each seat also as 110v and USB power to plug in electronics in flight.
The airline is the first in the world to receive the interior modifications on both Airbus fleets.
All 126 A320 and A319 aircraft will be retrofitted with the new interior by summer 2017. The larger of the two jets, the A320, will also receive in-flight entertainment, though not initially, through 2018. Many of Delta’s Boeing 757 jets are receiving interior enhancements as part of the airline’s more than $770 million investment in the domestic fleet to provide a more consistent customer experience.
