I recently visited New York during the US-Open Tennis Championship. It would only be only a quick citytrip and I tried to keep my expenses as low as possible. But when I ran over this awesome offer from Delta I couldn’t resist booking my flights in Business Class. I spent a total of 1’800 CHF for all flights, the return would be on KLM through Amsterdam. This was a great deal and it allowed me to check out KLM’s new world business class, fly in a 747 again and be on an american carrier in business for the first time. I have always wanted to feel american premium hospitality.
This is the first of all 3 flights of this particular trip. ZRH-JFK aboard Delta Airlines in their Delta “One” Business Class cabin.
The seat is similar to SWISS, Austrian or Finnairs Business Class seat. The seat itself is a bit narrow but pretty comfortable. All window seats are single what improves the privacy a lot! So therefore this seat has a couple of advantages.
The FA were pretty nice. No bad mood or attitude, they all were very kind, pretty motivated, attentive and helpful. Only thing I missed was a personal touch by the FA’s, f.e. a “welcome mr. xx ” during boarding or “mr.xx here is your chicken” instead of “5A you got the chicken”. But that’s only a small issue. Personally I would fly Delta Business again!
The food was pretty good aswell! Soup and Salad tasted good, the soup tasted a bit smoky but that was good too in a different way. Everything seemed to be pretty fresh. The Rösti were a bit salty and a little overcooked but crunchy. Chicken was delicious, no dryness at all.
The seat itself was fully lie flat. It’s a leather seat but that wasn’t a big difference to other material. The screen was a bit small but quality of the IFE and choice was pretty good!
