Trip Report Praise for Delta One

Jump to last reply

I know that posts on specific airlines tend to be complaints, but here's a rave for the Delta One business class product. DH and I just got back from nearly 3 weeks in the U.S. and flew from Amsterdam to Seattle in Delta One on their Airbus A330-300 (he flew back the same; I went down to San Francisco for a week of business meetings and returned with KLM). There was absolutely nothing we could complain about. Service was efficient, fast and friendly. The seats were extremely comfortable. Meal service was better than on almost any business class flight taken in the past decade. All in all, it was a seamlessly positive experience. ( http://www.delta.com/content/www/en_US/traveling-with-us/onboard-experience/delta-one.html ) FWIW, we had seats 7J and 8J on the way over and he had 3A on the way back.

Although Singapore still tops my list for business class, Delta One on the A330-300 is now second, ahead of Swiss, KLM, Air France, BA, Lufthansa, United and American (plus a few airlines now longer around, like Sabena). And it puts paid to the notion that U.S. branded carriers can't compete in comfort and service with international carriers. Will definitely use them again :-)
