The first aircraft to get the acclaimed Delta One (Business Class) suite were the Airbus A350s that Delta has recently been receiving but the airline has also been refurbishing its 777 fleet to offer a near identical product…and that has been good news for Delta’s premium cabin flyers.

Thanks to the anticipated arrival of more A350s and the speed at which Delta’s 777 are being refurbished the airline has announced that 5 new routes will offer the Delta One Suites, Delta Premium Select (Premium Economy) and the 9-across Economy Class cabin starting late this year.

Minneapolis/St Paul – Tokyo Haneda will get a refurbished 777-200ER aircraft from 16 November 2018

Atlanta – Tokyo Narita will get a refurbished 777-200ER aircraft from 1 March 2019

Seattle – Tokyo Narita will be operated by a new Airbus A350-900 from 1 March 2019

Los Angeles – Tokyo Haneda will get an Airbus A350-900 from 31 March 2019

The Los Angeles – Sydney route will get a refurbished 777-200LR at some point in 2019 but Delta has yet to announce the exact timing for this.

Yet More Routes Getting Delta One Suites/Premium Select

Routes Online has noted that, as well as the 5 routes highlighted by Delta above, two other routes have now been confirmed as offering refurbished aircraft complete with new cabins from later this year.

From 13 December 2018 through 29 March 2019 the Atlanta – Paris (CDG) route is scheduled to be operated by a reconfigured 777 on the following schedule:

DL82 ATL 16:00 – 06:00+1 day CDG
DL83 CDG 09:10 – 12:59 ATL

From 13 December 2018 through 30 March 2019 the Minneapolis/St Paul – Paris (CDG) route is scheduled to be operated by a reconfigured 777 on the following schedule:

DL42 MSP 16:05 – 07:10+1 day CDG (Mon, Wed, Thu, Fri & Sat)
DL43 CDG 10:40 – 12:59 MSP (Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri & Sat)

Delta has been offering Delta One suites between Detroit and Amsterdam since earlier this year but I don’t remember seeing any other of Delta’s European routes offer the airline’s latest cabins up until now (please use the comments to let me know if I’m mistaken) – it’s good to see Delta’s European routes get some much needed attention.

If you want to fly Business Class between the US and Tokyo in one of the better Business Class cabins around it looks like Delta has you covered and it also looks as if Delta is determined to roll out its newest cabins on its transpacific routes before it makes any serious changes to routes heading elsewhere.

As a LA-based flyer (at least for part of the year) it’s very good news to see the Delta One suites coming to LAX….especially as I’m currently looking around for new options for 2019 which will hopefully steer me away from American Airlines.
