Delta and Linkedin have a new partnership aimed at providing in-flight connections between business leaders at 35,000 feet.
The program, unveiled at TED2014, allows leaders from different fields to connect with each other on designated flights. Called the "Innovation Class" program, Delta is inviting passengers to submit an application for the program on its website. Those who are selected will be paired with other industry leaders in-flight.
"Every day Delta carries almost a half-million customers around the globe, many of whom are leaders in their respective fields of work," said Mauricio Parise, Delta's director of Worldwide Marketing Communications. "Innovation Class is our small contribution to enable collaboration by bringing together brilliant minds."
