The airline is the first North American operator of the A350 and has 24 left on order.

 

Delta plans to deploy the new aircraft mainly on trans-Pacific routes between the US and Asia, replacing the Boeing 747-400. The first scheduled flight will be from Detroit to Tokyo Narita on October 30, 2017, with Seoul and Beijing to follow.

 

Four more A350-900s are due to be delivered to Delta by the end of 2017, according to Airbus.

Verification Code:
For Delta to get rid of an American icon 747 for an A350 they must have been given the planes by Airbus. Time to quit flying Delta.
