Choose Delta! Selling Travel Agents Choice Awards
Over the past year, we’ve really upped the ante when it comes to the U.K. We’ve trebled the number of Fam Trips we offer to the U.S., Popped the Prosecco in Main Cabin, and sponsored this year’s fantastic Pride in London celebrations in partnership with Virgin Atlantic, and more.
Voting closes on October 14, 2018, so there’s still time. Here are some of the reasons we believe Delta deserves to be your choice:
1. In-flight innovation
This year, we launched free mobile messaging across our network so customers can keep up with their friends and families via WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and iMessenger at 30,000 feet.
Meanwhile, they can keep an eye on checked bags in-flight simply by looking at their phone thanks to RFID bag tracking technology that synchs to the Fly Delta app.
We also offer seat back screens for every passenger on our international flights – and have more aircraft equipped with in-seat entertainment than any other airline.
2. Unique destinations
With Virgin Atlantic, we offer almost 40 daily flights between the U.K. and North America, plus connections to 230 destinations. Our popular flight from London to Portland is the only nonstop from the U.K. to one of America’s hippest cities. We also serve Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York-JFK, Orlando, Seattle and Salt Lake City nonstop from London, and fly to New York-JFK from both Edinburgh and Glasgow.
3. Flying with fizz
Who doesn’t like to celebrate the start of a trip? Delta serves Prosecco in Main Cabin and Delta Comfort+ as a complimentary option, as well as a wide variety of wines, craft beers, soft drinks and Starbucks coffee.
4. Comfier cabins
Delta’s A330 aircraft on routes from London to Atlanta, New York-JFK and Detroit is offering customers an elevated onboard experience, with larger seats throughout the aircraft, including in Main Cabin.
5. Fine dining
Customers in Delta One enjoy meals created by restaurant chefs, served on Alessi serviceware with a selection of wines chosen by Master Sommelier, Andrea Robinson. Meals can now be pre-selected on flights from the U.S., so customers get their first choice every time.
Main Cabin meals deliver a restaurant-style dining experience, with new appetizers, salads and flavoursome entrees. There’s even a mini Magnum to enjoy for dessert.
6. Community care
Delta partners with charitable organizations in London and across the U.K. These include The Princes Trust, Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital Charity, The British Red Cross, the Trussell Trust and Young Enterprise. We also sponsor The National Theatre and the Donmar Warehouse. In partnership with Virgin Atlantic, Delta sponsored this year’s Pride in London.
As the official airline of The Prince’s Trust, 60 Delta employees are taking part in this year’s Delta-sponsored Palace to Palace Bike Challenge, raising funds to help The Trust transform more young people’s lives for the better.
7. Environmentally chic
Designed by Hollywood favourite Zac Posen, our new uniform has elevated Delta from the look of a traditional U.S. carrier by introducing glamour, sophistication and a whole new colour scheme. And thanks to our sustainability credentials, not one piece of the old uniform is going to landfill.
We are proud to serve the U.K. and to be a finalist for this year’s Airline to North America in the Selling Travel Agents Choice Awards.
