In partnership with Airbus, Delta is flying the delivery flight with a synthetic jet fuel and is exploring opportunities with Airbus to power future delivery flights with similar fuels.
Customers will first see the aircraft on trans-Pacific flights from Delta's Seattle hub later this summer, with the experience featuring:
- A modern, luxurious interior with all four branded seat products — Delta One suites, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin
- Thoughtful touches like in-seat power ports, full-spectrum LED ambient lighting, spacious overhead bins, and memory foam cushions throughout the aircraft for added comfort
- Thousands of hours of complimentary entertainment via seatback entertainment screens, powered by a new wireless IFE system from Delta Flight Products
- High-speed 2Ku internet connectivity, including free mobile messaging through iMessage, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger
Delta has a total of 35 purchase commitments for the A330-900neo as older 767-300ERs retire in the years ahead at the end of their serviceable life cycle.
