Delta Air Lines announced plans to develop an all-new, all-suite business class called Delta One. The new class will be released fall 2017.

“This product is meant to be as close to a private jet experience as possible and is driven by our customers, who were telling us that they wanted more privacy,” Tim Mapes, chief marketing officer, Delta Air Lines, told The New York Times.

The suites will include a sliding door, ambient lighting, direct aisle access, lie-flat beds, a memory foam cushion and an 18-inch entertainment screen, the largest of any carrier. Delta One customers will also receive noise-canceling headsets, in-flight loungewear, Kiehl’s dopp kits and sommelier-curated wine and food pairings.

“Added comfort and privacy are important to business travelers, and that drove the design of the all-new Delta One suite,” Mapes said in a statement.

The suites will be built into the Airbus A350; Delta is currently set to receive 25 A350 aircraft. In spring 2018, Delta says it will add a second Delta One cabin on the airline’s Boeing 777s. The total Delta One expansion will be complete by 2020 and the class will be offered on flights more than 12 hours, primarily between the United States and Asia.
