More passengers on Delta flights are enjoying free in-flight entertainment on the airline’s Delta Studio platform, following the 500th mainline aircraft to be equipped with seat-back screens.
“Delta offers customers more aircraft with seat-back entertainment than any airline in the world,” said Tim Mapes, Delta’s senior vice-president and chief marketing officer. “Providing customers with more choice within their on-board experience sets Delta apart and is another example of Delta listening and responding with new product innovation.”
The airline has committed to install more than 600 aircraft with seat-back screens by the end of 2018, in partnership with Panasonic, while also allowing passengers to stream Delta Studio to their personal devices on the airline’s entire mainline fleet as well as all two-class aircraft.
“Customers tell us that investing in entertainment – whether it’s adding more seat-back screens, offering free entertainment or expanding high-speed Wi-Fi – is important, so we will continue leading the industry in making these enhancements on board,” Mapes said. “We recognise that Delta customers multi-task, using multiple screens throughout their day, and want to provide choice and flexibility for them to decide how they want to spend their time in flight.”
