Delta One 777

Posted on

We've put together a list of all Delta One Suite routes, with the corresponding flight numbers!

Introduction

By James Field MIAMI — Delta has unveiled how its Boeing 777-200 (ER/LR) fleet will look like with the new DeltaOne Suites that the Airbus A350-900 inaugurated last year. All of the 18 Boeing 777-200s in Delta’s fleet will be enhanced and fitted with the Suites as well as the new Delta Premium Select cabin.

The 777 is just one of six mainline types at Delta, including Boeing 717s and McDonnell Douglas MD-88s, whose retirement was accelerated by COVID. When all said and done — something that is not. Delta’s existing (i.e., pre-overhaul) 777-200ERs and LRs have 37 seats in Delta One business class, 36 in extra-legroom Comfort+, and 218 in the main cabin. Have you flown on a 777 across an. Delta has 12 Boeing 777-200s in their fleet, split between the “ER” and “LR” version. Delta has had these planes for years, and they used to have herringbone seats. Delta has been working on reconfiguring these planes, and that process is now complete.

Delta Air Lines introduced the new business class suites with doors, called Delta One Suite, in 2017. Many people prefer of course to fly with this product rather than the old business class product. Therefore, it is helpful to know on which planes and routes this cabin is operated by Delta Air Lines.

A little warning, the following information is not binding in any way. Delta Air Lines can change flight equipment at any given time without further notice, for example if an aircraft is out of service or for any other reason. As you booked a business class flight you will of course be in business class, but without the Delta One cabin. You won't be able to change or cancel your flight free of charge.

How to check if a Delta Air Lines flight offers the Delta One Suite?

For the moment Delta One suites are available on all the Airbus A350, the new A330-900neo, the refurbished Boeing 777 and a few refurbished Boeing 767-400. Betting on sports statistics.

If the seat map on Seatguru looks like this in a 1-2-1 seating arrangement.

.then it is operated by the Delta One Suite cabin.

On the other hand if the seat map looks like this in a 1-2-1 seat arrangement

or this

then it is NOT operated by Delta One Suite.

After a four-and-a-half hour flight from Seattle, the pilots flying Delta Air Lines‘ first Boeing 777 flew low over the runway at the carrier’s Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport home — rocking their wings back and forth in a symbolic greeting to the crowds below.

“This is obviously the new queen of our fleet,” Delta’s then CEO Leo Mullin told journalists The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The day was March 26, 1999. The 777-200 that landed was the first of what would grow to an 18-strong fleet of the venerable Boeing wide-body over the next two decades.

But the 777 will never see its silver anniversary at Delta. The last of Delta’s 777s flies off to the desert after a final passenger flight on Halloween.

The wide-body was an early — and unexpected — victim of the coronavirus pandemic. Delta is retiring all 18 of its 777s and bringing the “future of the fleet forward” — as chief customer experience Bill Lentsch put it on Friday — with a flagship long-haul wide-body fleet centered on the Airbus A350.

“It will be a favorable cost impact and a favorable customer service impact,” Lentsch told reporters on the accelerated shift towards a primarily Airbus fleet. Replacing the 777s with A350s alone will cut fuel burn by 21% on flights where the latter jet flies.

In addition, flyers can expect a more consistent inflight experience with fewer airplane types in the fleet, he added.

Delta’s final passenger 777 flight, DL8777, is due to depart New York JFK at 1 p.m. local time and arrive at Los Angeles (LAX) at 4 p.m. local time on Saturday, Oct. 31. The flight will be operated with one of its newer 777-200LRs that were just recently outfitted with the airline’s latest onboard offerings, including Delta One business class suites and Premium Select premium economy seats.

From LAX, the plane and several others are bound for storage in the desert at Victorville, California, before they are either sold or scrapped, said Lentsch.

Delta may continue to use several of its 777s for charters and cargo flights through the end of the year.

The 777 is just one of six mainline types at Delta, including Boeing 717s and McDonnell Douglas MD-88s, whose retirement was accelerated by COVID. When all said and done — something that is not slated until 2025 — the carrier will operate primarily Airbus jets with only 737s and a select number of 757s and 767-400ERs remaining from Boeing.

Other airlines have also removed jets by the dozen. Alaska Airlines retired its Airbus A319s and American Airlines accelerated the removal of its Airbus A330s, 757s, 767s and Embraer E190s since March. And across the Atlantic, Air France said au revoir to its Airbus A380s while British Airways has flown its Boeing 747s off to a retirement in Wales.

Trade group Airlines for America (A4A) estimates that nearly 20% of U.S. airline fleets — nearly 1,000 aircraft — were in long-term storage, or anything over six months, as of Oct. 25.

Delta’s 777 retirement in favor of Airbus jets is tinged with irony. The Boeing wide-body having edged out the competing Airbus A330 for the order in 1997.

Boeing originally pitched the 777 as a replacement for Delta’s Lockheed L-1011 fleet in 1996, according to reporting by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. While the jet was viewed as too large for the L-1011s primarily U.S. domestic routes, the planemakers decision to stretch the 767 — what became the 767-400ER — to replace the Lockheed tri-jet ultimately landed it an order for more than 100 737s, 767s and ultimately 777s.

The first 777-200s flew primarily between Delta’s U.S. hubs and large European cities like Frankfurt, London and Paris. The addition of the 777-200LRs with a longer range allowed the airline to add new far flung destinations like Johannesburg, South Africa, and Sydney, Australia, to its map.

“The 777 played an important role with Delta since 1999, allowing us to open new long-haul markets and grow our international network as we transformed into a global airline,” said Delta CEO Ed Bastian in a statement. “I’ve flown on that plane often and I love the customer experience it has delivered over the years.”
