Tray table art adorns Delta 767


Delta Air Lines and The Coca-Cola Company have teamed up to bring art to the tray table.

Twelve artists from around the world worked with Delta and Coca-Cola have created an art gallery in the sky one of the airline’s 767s.


“Each artist brought their own personal style and taste to their trays and drew inspiration from some of the airline’s most popular destinations, including: Amsterdam, Atlanta, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York City, Paris, Sao Paulo, Seattle, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo. Each piece of art celebrates themes of optimism, travel, refreshment and happiness," said a release from Delta. 

Delta will also be displaying the original trays in Concourse A, between gates A15 and A11 at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Video footage and other behind-the-scenes assets of the artists in action will be shown.

Delta, along with creative agency Wieden+Kennedy New York and Coca-Cola, developed and implemented the art gallery.

More on each artist and their specific tray table art can be found on Delta’s website.
