Skyteam member Delta airlines is currently upgrading the cabins in both their business and economy comfort cabins.
The upgrades are currently being rolled out across their wide body fleet.
What are they adding?
By the sounds of things the upgrades are mainly focussed on the Business Elite cabin, but they’re also making a few changes to both the Economy Comfort and standard Economy cabins.
In a blog post they describe some of the upgrades:
