Delta unveils all-suite business class cabin

Delta Air Lines will debut the first all-suite business class cabin on its new Airbus A350 jets from next year.
Delta says each jet will have 32 suites featuring a sliding door, customisable ambient lighting; dedicated storage, 18-inch-high resolution in-flight entertainment screen, universal power outlets and USB port.
The Delta One suites all have direct aisle access and fully flat beds.
"Added comfort and privacy are important to business travellers, and that drove the design of the all-new Delta One suite," said Delta chief marketing officer Tim Mapes.
"Delta constantly listens to customers and responds with products that deliver what they want."
Delta touts it as an 'unparalleled business class experience with a comfortable, residential feel'.
It will debut in August 2017 on Delta's first Airbus A350 which will serve international routes in Asia and then will be rolled out gradually on Delta's Boeing 777 fleet.
Meanwhile, Delta is adding more flights from Boston, with new routes to San Francisco and Nashville.
The carrier begins flying a Delta Connection service to Nashville on November 6 and launches a twice-daily service to San Francisco on June 8, 2017 using Boeing 757-200 aircraft.
It also announced more flights to Milwaukee and Seattle from Boston.
Vice president network planning Joe Esposito said: "We're seeing growing demand for business travel between Boston and key markets like San Francisco, Nashville, Seattle and Milwaukee."
