Six handsome Airbus A350-900 aircraft now grace the Delta fleet, which means there are more chances than ever before coming soon to catch a ride on Delta's flagship international aircraft. The new additions feature the Delta One suite, Delta Premium Select and a main cabin experience that's comfy, entertaining, with beaucoup overhead bin space.
Here's how you can experience the Delta A350 flagship from the City of Angels and several other amazing ways:
Los Angeles – Shanghai beginning July 2: Delta has served customers on this route since 2016 with Boeing 777 aircraft and the countdown is on for Tinseltown's newest aircraft option to and from China's largest city and global financial center.
Motor City is your go-to. Delta's hub at the McNamara Terminal of Detroit Metropolitan Airport is your center point for the most A350 options. And don't fret if at first you think DTW isn't exactly in your backyard – it's Delta's second largest hub by daily departures and has nonstop flights to over 100 U.S. destinations. So look to build your itinerary with an enjoyable easy connection via DTW to fly the A350 any day of the week to Tokyo-Narita, Beijing, and Seoul-Incheon (and back again!).
Coming soon is Detroit - Amsterdam service on March 31 and Detroit – Shanghai on April 19.
Booking is fast and convenient at delta.com. While there, feast your eyes on what you're in for on the A350. In the meantime, here's the onboard experience run-down:
