Delta Survey Shows Business Travelers Use Flights to Unwind

Are you secretly happy when a flight doesn’t offer wi-fi and you can legitimately take a break from working during business travel?  If so, you’re not alone.  Delta Airlines recently published the results of a new survey, which reports that business travelers are turning to corporate business flights as a respite from the pressures of daily life, providing a rare opportunity to unwind rather than simply just a means to get to the next corporate meeting.
The most popular way to relax among survey respondents was reading, followed by sleep and watching a movie.
Delta is investing heavily in upgrading the customer experience with $2 billion in enhancements planned through 2013. Delta is currently rolling out its feature 180-degree fully flat bed seats in a one-two-one configuration across Europe. This will give its BusinessElite customers direct aisle access as well as a choice of single seats for added privacy. By this summer, Delta’s trans-Atlantic flights will also feature Economy Comfort, Delta’s premium economy service.
