Boeing Delivers Delta’s First 737-900ER
Boeing announced the delivery of Delta Air Line’s first Next Generation 737-900ER aircraft. The arrival of the single-aisle plane is part of a 100-jet order placed in 2011.
Delta’s 737-900ERs feature the Boeing Sky Interior, which gives the plane a more spacious feel through the use of new sculpted sidewalls, windows, larger overhead bins that disappear into the ceiling and hold more bags, and B/E Aerospace’s LED cabin interior lighting system.
The new aircraft seats 180 passengers, with 20 first-class recliner seats that are 21” in width with a pitch of 37” and 21 seats in Delta’s premium-economy section, Economy Comfort, that are 17” wide with a pitch of 34”.
Delta currently has 10 Boeing 737-700 and 73 737-800 aircraft included in its narrow-body fleet. The 737-900ER has the highest capacity and lowest seat-mile cost in the Boeing single-aisle family of planes.
