 Q. Will Delta Air Lines be upgrading its regional jet service between ILM and Atlanta to a two-class service?  Similarly, will the new Delta jet service between ILM and New York-La Guardia include a two-class configuration?

A. There will be no first-class service on either of these routes, according to Delta spokesman Trebor Banstetter. This is because both are 50-seat regional jets, more specifically Bombardier CRJ200 aircrafts, and they are configured for a single-class cabin because they aren’t large enough to accommodate a comfortable first-class area, he said.

This type of smaller-plane setup is typical on flights of two and a half hours or less, Banstetter added.

The new nonstop ILM to LGA route from Delta begins on July 15, he said.


How many commercial airline carriers have flown out of ILM and who were they?  

What are the rules and costs for traveling with surfboards out of ILM airport on US Airways or Delta?
