California got a bit more love from Delta recently when the airline announced that it would be offering its popular Delta One Suites and Premium Select cabin on two routes out of Los Angeles. Now the airline is continuing to improve its services to/from the golden state by adding a new route to San Jose.

From 15 November 2018 Delta plans to offer a year-round service between Detroit and San Jose. This will be the only non-stop service between the two cities and will give customers in San Jose access to Delta’s extensive route network out of Detroit.

The currently published schedule looks like this:

DL2682 DWT 08:20 – 10:55 SJC (Daily)
DL2682 SJC 11:45 – 19:25 DWT (Daily)

Delta’s press release suggests that the new route is set be operated by its 737-800 aircraft offering 16 First Class seats, 36 Comfort+ seats and 108 Main Cabin seats but this isn’t set in stone.

According to ExpertFlyer (and therefore the published schedule) Delta has scheduled the larger 737-900 aircraft to operate this route on a number of dates (especially in December) so more First Class seats and fewer Comfort+ seats will be available on certain dates.

As is now the norm with Delta the aircraft will also offer free in-flight streaming via Delta Studio, an IFE screen, Wi-Fi and power ports at every seat.


With Delta already having added flights between San Jose and New York JFK to its network it looks as if the airline is trying to capture yet more of the Silicon Valley market.

San Jose has rapidly grown to become a major airport in California and is key to many living in or around the Bay Area so it’s good to see Delta stepping up its offering.
