Deltas plumbing system is on track to be fully operational in 2018
Engadgets is reporting that Delta will have plumbing and ducting installed for the entire Deltans first-class cabin in 2018.
Delta said it was the first airline in the world to roll out a plumbing system in cabin for all of its flights.
While the Deltan’s cabin is currently being constructed, the system will soon be complete.
Delta will be the first major airline to roll a plumbing solution to every cabin.
The company has spent over $1 billion to build the Delta Pipes, which will provide an improved cabin experience for Delta customers.
“The Delta Pills have been the standard for over 20 years, but now that we’re ready to roll the Delta system out to our cabin, we are confident that it will be a game-changer,” Delta CEO Tom Hicks said in a statement.
“As we deliver this milestone to the Delta community, we will also be delivering a new and improved cabin with a world-class passenger experience.”
The Delta pipes will be installed on the underside of the cabin and the exterior walls will be made of stainless steel.
The system will include the company’s Delta Flow Control system, which has been tested in the Delta’s Boeing 737-800.
