Delta introduces new sleep amenity kits for international economy class

Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines has introduced new sleep amenity kits for its economy class passengers on international long-haul flights. The new kits include eye-shades and earplugs to aid passengers in sleeping and resting when travelling on over-night red-eye intercontinental flights.

In addition to the kits, economy class passengers on all Europe bound trans-Atlantic flights of 3,850 miles or less, will receive a full-size bottle of water following themeal service, and updated snack offerings for morning and afternoon/evening arrivals. On the return flights from Europe to the U.S., a mid-flight ice cream service will be offered. Longer-haul international flights will see these additional service improvements added in early summer 2014.

From this summer, Delta will offer passengers in domestic first class, and in domestic and international economy class, new upgraded ear-buds for use with Delta’s seat-back entertainment systems. The ear-buds are for the passengers to keep after the flight. It is not clear, whether the ear-buds are offered free of cost or not.
