W+K and Delta Comfort Frequent Fliers in New Campaign

By Kiran Aditham 

It’s hard not to think of Edward Norton in Tyler Durden/Fight Club work mode when watching this new :60 spot from Wieden + Kennedy New York for Delta.

The ad, clearly pitched to frequent flyers, demonstrates the life of an exasperated traveling businessman. “On the Road” shows us — via the grizzled-yet-soothing voiceover of recurring pitchman Donald Sutherland — that no matter how exhausting one’s globetrotting adventures become, one can find solace in the Delta One cabin.


Delta One, in case you didn’t know, is the air carrier’s new luxury class that features flat-bed seats, expedited security, and assorted “premium” amenities.
