Delta Check-in/ Ticketing Counter Designs

Sat Aug 30, 2003 1:38 am

Hi I was wondering if this following photo depicts Delta's usual ticket counter/ Check-in counter design?

The reason I ask is I know airlines at most airports have the same "counter liveries" And I am simply wondering if this is delta's counter design system wide, It seems like it might match up with the 1997 scheme a little more then with the newer one, so maybe they have been changed. Then again this is Atlanta, and I know airlines sometimes "spif up" their hubs a bit, for instance when UA started their new branding (which still hasn't and prabobly won't be seen on any aircraft for many years to come) I remember not seeing it in out stations for years but I remember the designs quite present in places like Hawaii and SFO. Thanks for any info to this matter, also I encourage any links to Photos, or photos of any counters from U.S. airlines! Thanks a lot! Isnt't it wierd how I can go from Doors to counters??? lol Also, BTW, PDX's delta counters are still in the "widget" scheme, and haven't been changed, the only reason I can come up with is that because their ticket counters bend at PDX they need designs that specifically bend to its conditions, therefore they havent been able to hang any of their "straight signs" there yet...

The only place I've seen that design is ATL's concourse E international check in.
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

Flyboy -- the pic you have there is indeed of Atlanta Terminal E.

The Delta sign behind as since been updated. All counters in Terminal E are the same, and are an "airport" design. The other Concourses feature Delta counters and gate wall designs.

You'll see more and more in today's airports a move to generic counters like those in Concourse E, as they provide flexibility for the airport authorities, given airlines' propensity to come and go.

This isn't even "Check-In" for Delta at Terminal E. It's a customer service desk. You need to check-in at the main terminal and clear security before even reaching this desk.

Here are photos of Delta's gate and ticket counter "liveries." This reflects the most recent airplane paint scheme and can be seen in most Delta terminals.

I think Delta's check-in counter in Atlanta is one of the best-designed ones I've ever seen. It's classy looking, and the signs give you good directions about which agent is open.

As a statistician, I find it to be a fascinating exercise in queueing theory.
But that was when I ruled the world

No. That's far from Delta's usual.

There's usually a white background with the new logo, and white/silver counters.
