It's not often we see transpacific Premium Economy fares under $900 but that's exactly what Delta is currently offering for non-stop travel between Los Angeles and Shanghai on its new Airbus A350 aircraft.
Delta will soon be taking delivery of its first Airbus A330-900neo aircraft and, from what I can tell, the airline has just announced the first international routes we can expect to see the aircraft fly....although it hasn't explicitly stated that these are its first A330-900 routes.
With the US Department of Transport currently negotiating a new airline agreement with Japanese authorities we should soon see new slots opened up at Tokyo Haneda for the use of US airlines. United was first out with news that they're applying to operate 6 new routes between the continental US and Tokyo Haneda and now Delta and American have put forward their applications for new Haneda routes in 2020.
Delta first introduced pre-select meals back in March 2018 on in select Delta One cabins departing from Atlanta and New York JFK. In December last year the airline announced that it was expanding the pre-select option globally as well as offering it on long-haul domestic routes where Delta One is offered. Now Delta is going a step further.
Delta and its SkyTeam partners have released a few good Business Class fares for travel between Madrid and at least 5 US cities for travel starting almost straight away so, if you're looking to head to the US, these could be an economical way to get there in a little bit of comfort.
It looks as if a fare war has broken out on the Milan - New York route and it may just be that it's the Qatar Airways backed Air Italy that has triggered it. Right now SkyTeam, Star Alliance and Air Italy are all offering roundtrip Businesses Class fares between Milan and New York from ~$1,700 and, as each alliance/carrier offers something a little different, I'm writing about them separately rather than in one gargantuan post.
Delta has posted a Medallion Member update in which it has announced that automatic upgrades from its Main Cabin to Delta Comfort+ will not be available on select routes from later this year.
Delta and its SkyTeam partners have announced a significant increase in their services to/from Boston for 2019 and, coming on top of Delta's other increased Boston services over the past two years (a new Las Vegas service and new services to Nashville, San Francisco, Jamaica) this puts Delta in a very strong position in Boston.
Delta has announced that boarding aircraft by zones "will soon be a thing of the past" as the airline changes the way it herds passengers onboard to a system governed by the fare brand that passengers have purchased.
