With regionally inspired meals paired with wines selected by Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson and extra wide in-flight entertainment screens.

The aircraft also offers 29 Delta Comfort+ seats with four additional inches of legroom and 171 Main Cabin seats.

And I think I will travel to Rio
Using the music for flight,
There's nothing I know of in Rio,
But it's something to do with the night.
It's only a whimsical notion
To fly down to Rio tonight,
And I probably won't fly down to Rio,
But then again, I just might.

Reno? Why Reno?
Not Reno, dummy.
Rio, Rio de Janeiro.
