Delta seeks entertainment business with invite-only ‘party plane’

Everyone on Delta Air Lines’ 11:30 a.m. flight Friday from Los Angeles to the South by Southwest festival will get expedited security processing, complimentary cocktails and a chance to win first-class tickets to London and New York. This invitation-only junket to Austin, Texas, is part of Delta’s bid to grab more of the entertainment industry’s travel business, which the carrier estimates is worth $1 billion a year.
