On Thursday 21st April, Delta Air Lines, supported by its partner Virgin Atlantic, celebrated the launch of its daily nonstop service from London Heathrow to Salt Lake City in the impressive surroundings of Landing Forty Two at The Leadenhall Building.
Over 200 VIP guests, including press, travel bookers and key corporate contacts were invited to experience the services available on board Delta’s business class cabin – Delta One - such as wine tasting and live cooking demonstrations from Gate Gourmet preparing the dishes and ice cream sundaes that passengers can enjoy on board, served by glamorous flight attendants flown in from the U.S.
Create Food and Party Design also supplemented the demonstration with a fantastic menu of canapés and bowl food.
Throughout the event, organised by Delta’s full service event and marketing agency Zero Collective, guests were treated to a state-of-the-art virtual reality tour of Delta’s Boeing 767 aircraft, giving guests a closer look at the Delta One and Delta Comfort+ cabins from the comfort of a purpose built Delta sonic chair.
Those that enjoyed the experience were also entered into a free prize draw for one lucky person to win Delta One return flights to Salt Lake City with all accommodation and excursions included courtesy of the Utah Office of Tourism. Delta Air Lines also promoted its free onboard Wi-Fi by teaming with Landing Forty Two to create a personalised network name and landing page, which Landing Forty Two are delighted to announce as a new free of charge feature that can be arranged with the on- site event managers.
The evening's entertainment was provided by pianist Ross Wall, from Fullcircle.
Emma, the event manager from Zero collective said “Landing Forty Two is an event planner's dream! It is a well thought out and equipped venue, with a consistent team of great in-house suppliers - kudos to Create Food and Vibration Group. It was a pleasure working with you all and thank you for helping us achieve a seamless and well received event.”
