Delta to introduce new, two-class Shuttle Service

October 2, 2008

ATLANTA – Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) will offer its Shuttle customers the option of traveling in First or Economy class beginning Dec. 1, 2008 as the airline reconfigures its MD-88 Shuttle fleet to offer two classes of service. In the new configuration, Delta Shuttle will offer 14 seats in First Class and 128 seats in Economy with the open-seating policy remaining in place for each class of service.

SkyMiles Medallion members will be eligible for complimentary upgrades on Delta Shuttle flights; First Class seats also will be available for sale via normal ticketing channels.
“Our two-class, reconfigured Delta Shuttle fleet will provide our customers with more options when they travel with us,” said Lee Macenczak, Delta’s executive vice president – Sales and Marketing. “Delta will continue to provide Shuttle customers in both Economy and First Class with convenient, reliable service and a wide variety of amenities.”

Customers traveling in the Shuttle’s new First Class cabin will enjoy an expanded selection of snack options, a more expansive offering of complimentary cocktails and wider, more comfortable seats. Shuttle customers traveling in both First and Economy classes of service will continue to enjoy snack and beverage choices including complimentary wine, beer, coffee, teas, soft drinks and juices onboard. During November, customers may experience a mix of one- and two-class Shuttle aircraft as Delta completes the reconfiguration of its nine Shuttle aircraft by the end of the month.
