Delta Air Lines confirmed on 11 December that its seasonal nonstop flight between Athens Eleftherios Venizelos Airport and New York JFK will recommence, effective 18 May 2014.
“Delta offers customers from Athens increased choice flying to the United States by offering our service when customers most want to visit – during the peak summer months,” said Perry Cantarutti, Delta’s senior vice president for Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Delta’s flight from Athens features 33 fully flat-bed seats in BusinessElite. Each forward-facing seat converts to a 180-degree full flat-bed and offers direct aisle access in a 1x2x1 configuration.
Customers flying in Economy Comfort, Delta’s premium economy service, benefit from up to four additional inches of legroom and 50 percent more recline than Delta’s standard international Economy class seats, as well as priority boarding.
Other product initiatives being rolled out across Delta’s international fleet include the expansion of Wi-Fi service by the end of 2015. The introduction of Wi-Fi on Delta operated flights between Greece and the U.S. will enable customers to get online throughout their journey.
