Delta is expanding First Class on domestic routes

Delta Air Lines (Atlanta) announced a major enhancement of its domestic schedule, with plans to make First Class service available on all domestic flights longer than 750 miles, or about two and one-half hours of flight time, beginning this fall.

When the upgrade is complete, 50 routes that currently feature Delta Connection flights with only one class of service will be upgraded to two-cabin aircraft with First and Economy Class service. Some of the routes scheduled for enhanced service include flights between Atlanta and Albany, NY; Boston and Memphis, TN; Detroit and San Antonio; and Cincinnati and Dallas/Fort Worth. Service may be operated by Delta Connection carriers such as Atlantic Southeast Airlines, Chautauqua Airlines, Comair, Compass Airlines, Freedom Airlines, Mesaba Airlines, Pinnacle Airlines, Shuttle America and SkyWest Airlines.
