Delta Air Lines debuts new suites, premium seating on 5 more trans-Pacific routes

More flights across the Pacific with more Delta One suites and Delta Premium Select seating are coming in 2019, bringing more luxury, comfort and choice to more Delta customers transiting the U.S., Japan and Australia.

As Delta takes delivery of additional A350-900 aircraft and refurbishes more 777-200ER and LR aircraft, customers will enjoy more flights to more destinations with the award-winning Delta One suite, the popular Delta Premium Select cabin and nine-abreast seating in the main cabin.

Here is where and when Delta customers can see new and refurbished aircraft on the five trans-Pacific routes, the latest example of the airline’s broad, ongoing efforts to transform the customer experience at all points of the journey:

Route (airport code) Aircraft (fleet code) Effective Dates

Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP) – Tokyo-Haneda (HND) 777-200ER (7HD) Nov. 16 westbound; Nov. 17 eastbound
Atlanta (ATL) – Tokyo-Narita 777-200ER (7HD) March 1 westbound; March 2 eastbound
Seattle (SEA) – Tokyo-Narita A350-900 (359) March 1 westbound; March 2 eastbound
Los Angeles (LAX) – Tokyo-Haneda (HND) A350-900 (359) March 31 westbound; April 1 eastbound
Los Angeles (LAX) – Sydney (SYD) 777-200LR (7HB) Exact 2019 timing to be announced

Enhanced 777-200LR service between Los Angeles and Sydney will start in 2019; exact schedule details will be published at a later date. All Delta trans-Pacific departures from Los Angeles will feature the Delta One suite and Delta Premium Select as a result once fully implemented in 2019.

Delta’s Airbus A350-900 flagship and upgraded 777 design is part of Delta’s multi-billion dollar investment in the overall customer experience.

Delta will refurbish all eight of its 777-200ER and all ten of its 777-200LR aircraft and expects to have taken delivery of 13 A350s by the end of 2019.
