The introduction of the A350 to Delta’s fleet has generated quite a bit of interest from flyers thanks to the revolutionary Business Class suites (revolutionary by US carrier standards) that have been fitted in the aircraft’s frontmost cabin. As if that wasn’t enough the A350 is also be the first aircraft to feature Delta’s new Premium Economy product, Delta Premium Select, so there’s quite a bit of reason for the interest being shown.

I use this page to highlight the routes on which Delta operates (or will operate) its new Airbus A350 and I update it each time I see a new route added or a schedule changed – if you’re interested in trying out the Delta A350 you may wish to bookmark this page.
