Delta Air Lines will expand the Delta One cabin on its fleet of Airbus A350-900 aircraft, which services the Sydney-Los Angeles route, adding eight more lie-flat suites to the long-haul jet by mid-2024.

With these modifications, the A350-900 will feature 40 Delta One Suites (up from 32), 40 seats in the Delta Premium Select cabin, 36 extra-legroom seats in Delta Comfort+ and 159 Main Cabin seats.

Available on long-haul international flights, Delta One Suites offer 180-degree flat-bed seats, complete with an oversized duvet and pillow, handcrafted amenity kits and enhanced privacy with full-height doors and dividers.

The move comes as the airline responds to its customers who are increasingly seeking premium travel experiences.

Delta’s first modified A350-900 aircraft with this new Delta One Suites configuration is expected to enter service in the Northern Hemisphere summer this year.

Delta currently operates an A350-900 jet on its double-daily SYD-LAX route and will begin flying this aircraft on daily direct flights between Auckland and Los Angeles in early June 2024.

The US carrier introduced the nonstop AKL-LAX route on 30 October 2023 – its first service connecting New Zealand with the US.

From LAX, travellers can connect to more than 50 cities in the US and South America via the Delta Air Lines network.

Currently operating 28 A350-900s, the airline recently announced it has 20 of the wide-body aircraft on order for delivery by 2026.
