    Delta Air Lines said on Monday it plans to invest USD$1 billion over the next few years to upgrade its aircraft and enhance airport lounges.

    Delta said it would spend about USD$300 million a year through mid-2013 on the initiatives, which include installing full flat-bed seats for business class passengers on 90 Boeing trans-oceanic aircraft and adding first-class cabins to 66 jets operated by regional connection carriers.

    Flat-bed seats offer extra legroom and more privacy.

    "Rather than invest in new aircraft, Delta will be spending its capital to improve the quality and consistency of the on-board product and efficiency of the aircraft we already own," Delta President Ed Bastian said in a statement.

    Delta, which acquired Northwest Airlines in 2008, said the moves also included completing modification of 269 pre-merger Northwest planes to add blue leather seats, updated lighting and better amenities such as more overhead bin space. The carrier also said it would install winglets on more than 170 Boeing planes to extend aircraft range and boost fuel efficiency.

    The airline's plans also include renovating and expanding its Sky Club lounge in Los Angeles and introducing Sky Club locations in Seattle, Philadelphia and Indianapolis.

    Nachdem die so interessanten Thompson Sitze gestorben sind hat man sich nun entschieden die B767, das meistgenutzte TATL Flugzeug, mit Winglets zu versehen und die damit erreichte längere Reichweite zu nutzen um nun doch endlich die gesamte Y-Kabine mit PTV's auszurüsten. So sollen nun zu einem och nicht feststehenden Termin alle DL TATL/TPAC Flieger in Y Entertainment bekommen, auch die B747 von Northwest. Aus dieser massiven Investionen kann man schließen das es keine große 787 Bestellung von DL geben wird.
