The Airbus A350-900 is expected to operate the service to Aotearoa (New Zealand) seven days a week with 306 seats. 32 in Delta One Business, 48 in Premium Economy, 36 in Delta Comfort and 190 in the Main Cabin.
Delta says it is moving toward a full network recovery and has announced a route to Nice and additional flights to Paris and Tel Aviv. These new routes complement planned services announced last autumn to Edinburgh, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Geneva and Stuttgart.
Customers in Delta’s premium cabins will be treated to another dessert from Delta’s dessert cart.
Delta’s “cart of treats” includes ice cream — and “toppings like whipped cream, cookie crumble, fruit compote and chocolate chips.”
US airlines cut many services during the pandemic – cutting costs as planes flew at a financial loss and cabin crews were less exposed to the risk of contagion due to face-to-face contact.
