Are you flying from ATL? What a/c? 763ER, MD-11, or 777? The service on all are great. Delta's Business Elite class has much more legroom than BA's Business Class. The leather seats are amazing and the seat controls are well in reach. The on board service has been great on all flights. I definitely think you will have a very pleasant ride! Enjoy!

I flew BusinessElite on a 767-300ER from ATH to JFK and truly enjoyed it. Wonderful experience. Lot's of room, very comfortable seats.

You are in for a treat. BusinessElite is one of the best transatlantic business classes. The seats in the 777, MD-11, and 763ER are essentially the same. The 777 and MD-11 share a common width which is much, much wider and more comfortable than the 763ER. This is because both (777/M11 and 763ER) have the same 2x2x2 layout in BusinessElite, but the 763ER is much narrower (2x3x2 in coach rather than 2x5x2). Food and service is very good. It tends to be slow out of ATL for some reason, so if you don't want to waste an hour and a half go with the Express Service. Each seat has a PTV system with several movie channels, audio, AirShow, and games. Service not quite as impressive as when the product was first launched, but still by all means excellent. You'll have access to the BusinessElite Lounge in Atlanta; the Crown Room Club in Gatwick; and any other Crown Room Club at any other city you may pass through on this itinerary. i.e., RDU-ATL-LGW will allow you CRC access in RDU.

Probably the best American Business Class product around. Service is excellent, but not overtly doting (thank goodness). Food is great and the seat is the best around.

Agreed with all above. Outstanding. The seats are to die for -- it made my JFK-Istanbul flight (767-300ER) fly by (no pun intended.) I arrived so refreshed I could actually get work done.

2-2-2 in a 767 doesn't seem like much more room.

Biz Elite is fine, but nothing special. I prefer UAL biz class over it, though.

The seats were comfortable enough and the food was pretty good. Just nothing above and beyond.

Have a nice trip,

I love America. I guess that makes me Bush's poodle, but I'd rather be a dog in New York City than a prince in Riyadh.

I flew ATL-MAN on the 777 in Biz-Elite. Great trip all round.

Cheers.
