Delta Airlines will launch daily non-stop flights between Seattle and London from March 29, 2014.
The daily flights between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to London Heathrow Airport will be serviced by a 210-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft with 35 full flat-bed BusinessElite seats, 32 Economy Comfort seats and 143 Economy class seats.
Delta will upgrade all its international flights from Seattle with full flat-bed seats in BusinessElite, adding Economy Comfort class and providing in-flight entertainment for every passenger from January 1, 2014.
The announcement for the direct Seattle-London Heathrow flights comes within three weeks of Delta entering into a code-sharing agreement with Virgin Atlantic and nearly seven months after Delta purchased a 49 percent stake in Virgin Atlantic. Delta’s partnership with Virgin is expected to boost its access to London Heathrow.
Tickets for the London-Seattle flights will be available beginning on July 27.
