    Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) celebrated new nonstop service from Seattle to Shanghai today with an inaugural service ceremony. The flight is the latest addition to Delta's growing Asian gateway in Seattle, as the service, between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and Shanghai Pu Dong International Airport complements current nonstop service from Seattle to Beijing, Osaka, Tokyo-Narita and most recently, Tokyo-Haneda.

    "Delta's new Shanghai service is the latest step toward building Seattle into a world-class Asian gateway," said Richard Anderson, Delta's chief executive officer. "Seattle's strong business and cultural ties to Asia as well as geographic location make it a natural departing point for flights across the Pacific."

    Like all of Delta's trans-Pacific flights, the new Shanghai service features full flat-bed seats in BusinessElite as well as Economy Comfort seating and in-flight entertainment in every seat throughout the aircraft. The flight will operate using a 208-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft with 36 full flat-bed seats in BusinessElite, 29 seats in Economy Comfort and 143 Economy class seats.

    Doesn't he remember the fact his legacy airline, once upon a time was called "Northwest Orient", and Seattle was the jumping off point to the far east?
