Flying Delta First Class
We recently got to fly first class for the first time on Delta airlines, also commonly referred to as business class, during an overseas flight and it was amazing.
We were going to London on an overnight flight. It was a little over 8 hours going over there and over 10 hours coming back. As you can see from the photo above, you have a ton of leg room. You also have a little lamp next to you so you can read. Which you will definitely use, if you are not going to sleep because after the meal is served, they turn the lights off so everyone can sleep.
One of the questions I’ve gotten a few times was about the kids. Can kids fly in first class? They absolutely can! My kids love first class! Just look at Jonahs face!
Business Class Products
In addition to priority boarding, they give you a little bag full of stuff for the flight, including a sleeping mask, lip balm, lotion, socks, a toothbrush and toothpaste and mouthwash. It also had ear plugs, tissues, and a pen. You are also provided with a blanket and pillow so you can sleep. That’s Jonah above trying everything out! Yes, your kids are allowed to fly in Delta Business class aka first class. I have even seen people flying with babies up here. My kids love being first class passengers!
Delta First Class Food
The meals were good too, but my kids weren’t really digging them. They felt like they were too weird. Go figure. I must say despite this, they gobbled them right up.
Lie Flat Seats
The seats make into beds. I wish all airplane seats made into beds. Being able to lay down helped all of us sleep well on the airplane. All three of my kids were able to get quite a bit of sleep on the way over, which made such a huge difference with the time change. I highly recommend splurging on these lie flat seats on long haul international flights.
Since experience bed seats for the first time I have paid out of pocket for Noah to have a bed seat. He has epilepsy and sleep is vital. One of the toughest things about my job is getting Noah overseas. We get these amazing opportunities that we do not want to turn down, but the reality when your child has a condition you have to do some serious planning.
More Food Photos of Delta Business Class
I got Delta first class again this week after there was an unexpected aircraft change and wanted to share some more food photos. This is the food I got while flying Delta Business class within the United States.
And yes, it turns out they have bed seats on domestic flights too! Not always, but sometimes.
If you are flying first class overseas, you are given access to the Delta lounge. In the Delta lounge you will find complimentary beer, wine, and spirits. They also have some food like soup, salads, hummus, cookies, and other snack type food.
