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