Other product initiatives being rolled out across Delta’s international fleet include the expansion of Wi-Fi service by the end of 2015.
Meanwhile, customers flying into New York-JFK will benefit from Delta’s new JFK Terminal 4, part of a $1.4 billion project to create a state-of-the-art international gateway.
