Delta counts 40

Onboard Hospitality - - Global Perspective -

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?
