Book A Hotel

Six of Delta Air Lines retrofitted Boeing 777 aircraft are launching at the beginning of March 1, 2019.

Why Fly Delta’s Boing 777s?

Delta currently operates eight 777-200ERs and ten 777-200LRs in its fleet. Four of its 777s have already been retrofitted, and 14 will be retrofitted in 2019. This makes Delta’s Boeing 777’s a great choice when considering who to fly with. Delta is already a great choice, but by choosing a specific aircraft, you can be sure of the newest seats and a great experience.

These retrofitted Boeing 777 planes have an updated cabin and new seats with four separate classes, including First, the enclosed Delta One Business Class Suites (a great choice), a new Premium Economy seat named Delta Premium Select and a new, if unexciting Economy class seat. The new Delta One Suite and Premium Economy can also be experienced on its Airbus A350-900s.

Why Fly Delta In Economy?

On these refurbished 777s the Economy layout is nine-across in economy class instead of the usual ten-across that other airlines operate. These planes also offer the largest seat-back screens in the airline’s fleet.

Why Fly Delta In Premium Economy?

On these refurbished 777s the Premium Economy layout is a 2-4-2 configuration, and seats have a pitch of 38 inches and a width of 18.5 inches. Plus, you get an amenity kit in Delta Premium Select.

Why Fly Delta In The New Delta One Suites?

Delta One Suites are brilliant Business Class Seats. They recline to offer fully flat beds and are far better than United’s Polaris seats and are marginally better than American Airlines’ variety of Business Class seats. You can book the Delta One Suite seats on their B777 and A350 planes.

Which Routes Can I Fly The Refitted B777?

Flights are starting between March 1 and April 5 on the following routes:

  • Minneapolis/St Paul to Tokyo Haneda from March 1
  • Minneapolis/St Paul to Paris from March 1
  • Minneapolis/St Paul to Seoul from April 1
  • Atlanta to Tokyo Narita from March 1
  • Atlanta to Paris from March 1
  • Los Angeles to Sydney from April 5

Which Routes Can I Fly The New A350?

Atlanta to Seoul currently offers their flagship Delta One Suite and Premium Select on their A350 aircraft.

Delta already flies its Airbus A350 daily between Detroit (DTW) and Tokyo Narita (NRT). Delta also flies daily between Detroit (DTW) and Seoul (ICN) and Beijing flights from Detroit (DTW).

Delta has launched its A350 on the Detroit to Amsterdam route. This is the first transatlantic route for the Delta One Suite and their Premium Select offering. The flight will operate numbers 132 and 133, respectively, and will be one of the best ways to fly between the US and Europe.

Starting last April, Delta launched its daily A350 service from Detroit to Shanghai, and in July, Delta launched it’s A350 from the West Coast (LAX) to Shanghai.
