The arrival of the updated airplane B767-300 to Buenos Aires underscores our steadfast commitment to bring our customers a superior travel experience,” said Nicolas Ferri, Delta’s vice president for Latin American and the Caribbean.  “Delta is working to become the best U.S. airline in Latin America and the Caribbean and we listen to our frequent business travelers who have stated that the flat-beds are a must. The new BusinessElite flat-bed seats have direct aisle access and give customers more privacy to work or rest on their way to and from Buenos Aires.”
