Delta Air Lines has once again secured the top spots in the J.D. Power 2024 North America Airline Satisfaction Study for both its First/Business Class and Premium Economy segments, marking the second consecutive year for the latter. The airline’s exceptional performance is attributed to its premium experiences and operational excellence, earning the trust of customers worldwide.

Ed Bastian, CEO of Delta Air Lines, expressed pride in the recognition, attributing it to the dedication of the airline’s 100,000 employees who continually strive to enhance the customer experience.

Delta’s leading position in these segments stems from its consistent performance across key dimensions evaluated by J.D. Power, including pre-/post-flight experiences, on-board services, ease of travel, digital tools, staff interactions, and level of trust.

The airline’s commitment to customer satisfaction extends beyond its services, as demonstrated by numerous instances where Delta employees have gone above and beyond to assist passengers, from reuniting a honeymooner with her forgotten passport to inspiring future aviators and providing comfort during times of grief.

In addition to its exemplary service, Delta continues to invest in innovations such as the Fly Delta app, which boasts over 1 billion unique engagements in 2023 and offers features to enhance travel convenience and flexibility.

Delta has invested over $12 billion in airport infrastructure over the past decade, aiming to create seamless and connected travel experiences. The airline plans to open five new lounges in 2024 and introduce the Delta One Lounge experience in select locations.

Furthermore, Delta has expanded its premium seat offerings and equipped over 670 aircraft with fast, free Delta Sync Wi-Fi, setting industry standards for connectivity.

The introduction of Delta Sync seatback screens aims to revolutionize in-flight entertainment and customer loyalty programs, providing a more personalized and streamlined travel experience for SkyMiles Members.
