Often when we hear the words "party in the air" we usually think of an aviation theme or a party in a private aircraft, a party at the top of a very tall building, or flight attendants dancing in the aisle. Well last year, Delta Airlines held a party in the air, literally! Yes, when we mean party, we mean booze, a DJ, light sticks, dance music, and people dancing, all these at 30,000ft! It was not just also some ordinary party, it was a Silent Disco at 30,000ft!
Delta Airlines hosted the first ever Silent Disco inside one of their aircraft, flying at 30,000ft! Silent disco is an event where people dance to music listened to on wireless headsets. Rather than using a loudspeaker system, music is broadcast via a radio transmitter with the signal being picked up by wireless headphones worn by the participants. This special event was done with LSTN Sound Co., the provider of Delta's noise cancelling headsets.
This whole 90-minute flight took off from John F. Kennedy airport and circled around New York City with around 100 music loving customers! These partygoers were treated to a Delta experience from takeoff to touchdown, enjoying a pre-departure meal that included offerings from its “Best of USHG” summer menu, and on-board snacks from Kind and Murray’s Cheese. Passengers were also treated to an assortment of beverages, including the airline’s signature craft beer from Brooklyn Brewery and, during a celebratory toast, Lamarca Prosecco, one of the airline’s new sparkling wine offerings.
The new LSTN headphones will enable all Delta passengers to fully enjoy the airline's inflight entertainment system. These headphones will not be available in all Delta Airlines, but will definitely be available on Delta's Premium Select flight which will debut on its upcoming Airbus A350.
Delta has also previewed its newest cabin crew uniform designed by American designer Zac Posen.
Let's hope one of our local airlines will be able to bring this experience here, and yes, Flyhigh Manila is ready to help in organizing that party in Philippine skies!
