Delta Air Lines has announced a new service between Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Los Angeles International Airport beginning April 24, 2017.
The once-daily service will be the first nonstop route between the two locations to offer a fully flat seat in first class.
In addition to the fully flat seat, first class customers get accelerated check in and security and Premium Boarding. Drinks and in-flight meals are complimentary.
Ranjan Goswami, Delta Vice President of Sales, West Region, said: “We know that for Delta customers in L.A. and D.C., ‘how’ you get there is important. As the only airline to offer full flat-bed seats between these markets, our customers will arrive rested and productive – and it’s that premium distinction in the customer experience that differentiates Delta.”
Flights will be operated on Boeing 757-200 aircraft and offer 16 fully reclining first class seats, 44 Delta Comfort premium economy seats, and 108 standard economy seats.
First class is configured in four rows of four seats, two on each side of the aisle, with a seat pitch of 76 inches (193cm). Delta Comfort and economy each sit three on each side of the aisle. Seat pitch in Delta Comfort is 35 inches (89cm) and seat pitch in economy is 31 inches (79cm).
Rates begin at $177.10 one-way in economy, or $604.85 in first.
