Delta’s A220 has made its official debut this week.
Delta flight 744 pushed back from the gate at New York’s LaGuardia airport carrying customers for the first time aboard Delta’s newest narrowbody jet.
“We have big plans for this aircraft,” said Chuck Imhof, Vice President — New York and Sales, East. “It will be an integral part of our future domestic fleet and will deliver an experience our customers will look forward to every time they fly.”
Gatehouse festivities were underway in Texas, where customers and employees eagerly awaited the morning’s first A220 departure from Dallas/Ft Worth.
Highlights of Delta’s A220 include 109 seats, including seating for 12 in First Class, 15 in Delta Comfort+ and 82 in Main Cabin, new seatback screens, 2Ku Wi-Fi, wide seats, high-capacity overhead bins, extra-large windows and full-spectrum LED ambient lighting.
Delta took delivery of its first A220 in October 2018, and recently ordered 15 additional A220s, extending its order book to 90 total aircraft.
