Delta counts 40
Delta has been celebrating its 40th anniversary of flights between the UK and the US. When the first service launched in 1978, Boney M was topping the charts and Grease was on the verge of becoming the movie of the summer. And while the dastardly J.R Ewing is no longer on our TVs and perms and bell bottoms fell out of fashion long ago, 40 years on Delta is still flying from Heathrow to Atlanta,
New York-JFK and Detroit. The airline also serves four other US cities non-stop from Heathrow, as well as Edinburgh and Glasgow from JFK. Wifi is now standard onboard but who would have predicted that as the maiden flight took place in the seventies?
