Frequent flyers and TV buffs, rejoice: Delta is doubling down on expanding entertainment.
With its 700th aircraft now equipped with seat-back screens, Delta is giving more customers than ever before convenient access to its industry-leading Delta Studio lineup, which will soon include a suite of fan favorites from Hulu.
“Customers continue to tell us entertainment is a top priority,” said Ekrem Dimbiloglu, Director – Onboard Product and Customer Experience. “That’s why we keep extending our lead in having more aircraft with seat-back entertainment than any other airline in the world, and continue partnering with entertainment giants like Hulu to bring customers at-home favorites at 30,000 feet. These investments reinforce Delta’s reputation as the entertainment airline.”
