Song Turns Two in Style

Song, Delta Air Lines’ high-style,
low-fare air service celebrated its second birthday on Friday. Since launching
on April 15, 2003, Song has distinguished itself as a unique and
innovative low- fare air service, delivering high-style and low fares to
price-conscious and style-savvy travelers.“Song is all about choice. In the past two years, we’ve listened to our
customers, providing them with the service and amenities they’ve told us

In celebration of its second birthday, Song will offer double SkyMiles for

In January 2005, Song announced major expansion plans from New York’s John
F. Kennedy International Airport, including new coast-to-coast service to

Song’s expanded service will feature the wide array of on-board amenities

innovative in-flight entertainment (IFE) system of any low-fare service.
Song’s IFE features personal seatback video monitors that offer 24
channels of free, live, DISH Network television; 24 channels of free audio

inventory of more than 1,600 songs); 10 movies available on demand,
allowing customers to start and stop the film at their leisure; 11 video
games; and a popular interactive trivia game that allows friendly
competition among passengers.

Song also offers a comprehensive onboard menu, featuring healthful,
organic selections, including a California Chicken Salad and Veggie
Sandwich, as well as a few indulgences such as Song’s signature martinis,
including the special 2nd Encore Tini in celebration of its second
birthday. Last year, Song introduced an In-Flight Fitness program,
developed exclusively for the low-fare service by fitness guru David

they are on the fly.
