Delta posted a number of PR pictures that display a number of the company’s new “Travel Well” standards.

Cleaning, non-contact options, social distancing, and employee-passenger interaction are all featured.

The set takes example passengers though a trip — from check-in to onboard the aircraft.

We start in the check-in area, where this Delta employee is cleaning a touchscreen kiosk. (Though it might not be a bad idea for travelers to get a device like this that supposedly allows you to operate touchscreen devices — and open doors — without actually using your fingers.)

Does anyone else find it interesting that he’s not wearing gloves in a photo series seemingly meant to instill confidence in travelers.

This young lady, however, is wearing gloves while wiping down a kiosk.

From there, we proceed to the baggage check counter.

This gentleman helps check in a passenger. No gloves on him, either. What’s up with the dudes going sans gloves? (Perhaps the production crew ran out?)

Time to clear security. Naturally, this is a good opportunity for Delta to plug CLEAR, which it partially owns.

Here, you see passengers waiting at markers apparently spaced for social distancing.

CLEAR is probably (and rightfully) enjoying a “Hah! We knew we’d use those retinal scans!” moment. It really is a pretty cool and useful feature. Here’s it is in action.

Now that we’re through security, it’s time to check something with the gate agent.

Oh, look! It’s hardest working man in the photo series, pulling double duty as a check-in agent and working the gate! (Is this a small-market airport that still has service or something? 😉 )

Mr. McGloveless directs this passenger on how to use her electronic boarding pass. (Gotta say, though, this guy is smiling in every picture, so good on him.)

You’d think Delta would use this opportunity to roll out more of their biometric boarding, right?

Down the jetbridge we go! Socially distanced, of course.

This young lady is back, selecting something on her IFE.

And these passengers need some air. I’m hoping those air vents were cleaned either by hand or with the fogging procedures Delta has in place.

Here we have a flight attendant in the “passport plum” outfits (I guess she’s one of the lucky ones who’s not allergic) possibly preparing to lower the tray table for cleaning? She does have gloves.

It’s time for cabin service! This flight attendant (yes, wearing gloves!) and passenger seem to be enjoying a pleasant interaction while the new snack bags are served.

And here’s a passenger getting what appears to be a sterile wipe to he can disinfect something. (I believe all passengers now receive them. 😉 )Delta travel well image

People who are flying Delta right now: have you noticed these Travel Well practices? How are passengers and employees reacting?

    Stunning to see Delta has not heard the news that the CV Scam is over . The mayors and governors marching shoulder to shoulder in huge groups proves there is no health purpose to the edicts–only power statements. I will not submit to this basic assault on my Constitutional right to protect my body by not limiting the oxygen intake.

  2. I’m indifferent about not wearing gloves while using disinfectants to clean or where there are hand sanitizing dispensers readily available. After logging 10K flying miles since 15MAY spread over AA and DL, I feel much cleaner walking out of a DL aircraft. AA does not practice any of the distancing measures. Their crew does not greet passengers with disinfecting wipes, nor do their staff disinfect or fog-spray the planes between flights (I noticed crew stayed inside the plane waiting for the passengers on the return journey).

    In my view, DL is straightening up and flying right.

  3. the touch screens were not allowed in the airports that i visited this week.. and the DL snack pack is sad and no ICE..At least we could get cold water….but not
