Delta’s A350 arriving at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport next month from its hub in Minneapolis will be a delight for plane spotters and passengers alike. Not only does this new aircraft offer more spacious and comfortable accommodations, but it also brings with it a significant increase in total monthly seats as Phoenix prepares to host Super Bowl LVII in February. With more flights than any other domestic route for the A350 in January, Delta is helping to ensure that Phoenix is well-equipped to handle the influx of visitors.
Phoenix is a major hub in the United States, but when compared to other cities in the country, it sees far fewer regular passenger widebody aircraft both domestically and internationally. The only airlines that operate widebody aircraft year-round are American Airlines, British Airways, and Hawaiian Airlines. Before American Airlines began offering regular nonstop service to London, it operated Boeing 787 and 777s seasonally on domestic routes. Additionally, Condor has flown to Phoenix seasonally from Frankfurt with its Boeing 767-300ER.
Delta welcomed its first Airbus A350-900 in the summer of 2017 and now has 26 in its fleet, with 18 more reportedly on order. With its flagship aircraft, Delta is providing passengers with a world-class experience, increasing cargo capacity, lowering unit costs, and helping to create a more sustainable future. With its innovative technology and Smart Cabin design, the A350-900 is a game-changer for the airline industry.
Delta has equipped most of its A350 fleet with 306 seats, including 32 Delta One Suites, 48 recliners in Premium Select, 36 extra-legroom economy seats, and 190 regular economy seats. A few aircraft, however, were ex-LATAM jets that have yet to be retrofitted to Delta’s configuration, and are still equipped with 339 seats onboard.
Delta is deploying its A350s on some of its most popular international routes, including Detroit to Tokyo-Haneda and Detroit to Honolulu. With 31 flights scheduled for Tokyo-Haneda, a total of 9,486 seats are available every day of the month. Meanwhile, flights to Honolulu have 10,509 total monthly seats.
