Delta Now Booking Flights on Facebook

Your Facebook experience just got an upgrade.

Delta Air Lines (Stock Quote: DAL) unveiled their new 'Ticket Window' Thursday, a fun new tool enabling any of Facebook's 500 million users to purchase seats entirely on the company's fan page. Travelers no longer will have to click to Delta.com, unless they're interested in viewing the site's redesign.

"Unlocking the full power of social media and mobile apps is the next step for Delta, while providing innovative travel tools and greater convenience in our customer's mobile world," Bob Kupbens, Delta's vice president, said in a statement.

Delta is certainly striving to improve its online experience. The company recently enhanced its site for mobile phones and plans to release "a new iPhone app that will let fliers check in, research flight statuses, check frequent-flier-mile balances and even set parking reminders," reports CNN.

In the fight for airline supremacy, this move might bump Delta to first class.
