What’s Missing From This Brand New Delta Plane?


Take a closer look, something crucial is missing from Delta’s first A330-900neo, which just left the Airbus paint shop in Toulouse, France, sporting its signature Delta livery.

Though at first glance, the aircraft might look ready for takeoff, a closer look reveals something major still missing: the plane’s engines! These will be painted separately and mounted in the coming days.

This A330-900neo will take to the skies for testing before being delivered to Delta later this year.

Delta will be the first North American operator of the A330-900neo, which will offer the latest in innovative design and technology for customers. Delta’s A330-900neo will feature all four branded seat products – Delta One suites, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin.

This aircraft is the first of 35 next-generation A330-900neos on order by Delta and is expected to begin service later in 2019.​
