What you should expect in First Class

At the gate

  • Seat Assignment – Seat selection available at time of booking.
  • Boarding – Premium boarding.

In flight

  • Standard seat – I affectionately call it the Delta couch.  It’s a larger recliner seat with nice padding, increased width and decent pitch.  Most first class will be on narrow body jets in a 2-2 configuration, however there are some regional jets in a 1-2 and widebody jets configured in 2-2-2.
  • Complimentary snacks and non-alcoholic beverages – Coke products and an assortment of  snacks (Pretzels, peanuts, cookies, chips, brownie bites, fruit, etc).
  • Beer, Wine, Spirits available – All complimentary. Most flights include pre-flight and in-flight service.
  • In-seat power available on some flights – Most jets have 110V power between the recliners.
  • In-flight entertainment – Planes equipped with seat-back entertainment are useful.  Otherwise you’ll need to use your phone/tablet to connect to the in-flight entertainment system.  There’s a variety of movies, TV shows and music.
  • Pillow/Blanket – The pillow is small and the good ‘ole red Delta blank is awkwardly sized for normal sized people and almost see through.  You’ll probably need two blanks.
  • Amenity/sleep kit – Provided on longer flights and overnight flights.
