Following the delivery of its first Airbus A220-100 last week, Delta gave the world a sneak peek of the aircraft’s brand new interior. The new aircraft, designed to replace the now ageing 717 fleet will become the backbone of Delta’s regional operations with 74 on order atop of this new airframe.

Designed to be experience-rich for customers, Delta’s A220 will bring elements of the international travel experience that customers have enjoyed on widebody aircraft — like Delta’s flagship A350 — to domestic routes for customers to enjoy at home, including the introduction of the airline’s long-haul premium economy seat as the regional First Class seating option.

These First Class MiQ seats are arranged in a 2 x 2 layout, featuring the largest IFE screens of any Delta domestic First Class seat, large tray tables and arms that lower to increase passenger comfort and space. They also feature a 36″ seat pitch.

Featuring 109 seats in total, the aircraft is made up of 12 First Class seats, 15 in Delta Comfort+ (34″ seat pitch) and 82 in the Main Cabin (30-31″ seat pitch). These seats all offer touchscreens, and 2Ku Wi-Fi but the biggest win here for passengers is that the seats are among the widest seats of any narrow body aircraft.

In Comfort+ and the Main Cabin, the seats are arranged in a 2 x 3 configuration, with the over-wing emergency exit seats in a 2 x 2 configuration, meaning that 16E is the best seat in the house.

Another great throne, is the rear toilet. Which thanks to the configuration of the A220, has a window in is fairly large in comparison to most narrow body toilets.

Inaugural A220 flights are set to depart on Jan. 31, from Delta’s hub at New York’s LaGuardia airport to its growing operation at Boston Logan International, and from LaGuardia to Dallas/Ft. Worth.
