If SEA-NRT was the last A350 route from SEA, then yes for now. Delta may still schedule A350 routes from SEA in the future, or they may convert it to an A339 base.

Thanks @Ishrion, I’ll add those to the post

Wait wait what? MSP is getting a 2nd A350! Nice. We were only supposed to have an equipment change for MSP-ICN to the A350, but it will be great so see them flying to HND with the A350 also! Maybe they will push forward with that route to Shanghai Also 0_o

DL did propose MSP-PVG last year when AA announced it was cutting ORD-PVG. AA officially gave up its 7 frequencies on PVG on June 28th, 2019. Wouldn’t surprised to see them officially apply for it.

By the way, @MishaCamp, did I Credit the photos correctly?

Looks like flights are now loaded.

From what it looks like…

  • Detroit and Seattle will be on the A350.
  • Minneapolis switched from 772 to A350.
  • LAX switched to 772 from A350.
  • Atlanta will be on the 772.
  • Portland will be on the A332.
  • Seoul to Manila will be on the A330-900neo.

Interesting. Will the 763s be retired by the time of the transfer?

Considering a bunch of their 767s just got refurbished I don’t think that’s happening anytime soon.

There are no 767s on the list, and the ICN-MNL route, currently operated as a 767 from NRT, has been changed to an A339. PDX-Tokyo was also changed to an A330.

Well, Delta doesn’t just fly to Asia, there is an entire additional ocean to cross. Still plenty of routes to Europe and South American that those 767s will be flying…

Per the Wiki, only a select number of 763s will be retired this year. Most will continue to be in the fleet and should receive Premium Select on 2021.

Also… I think the 763 will still be flying SEA-KIX and possibly another route.
