This is a major upgrade…
Meals change all the time, seats come and go – but new state of the art planes and futuristic, industry leading seats – that’s something special. Delta are very proud of their Airbus A350 deliveries and brand new private business class suites, and they should be. The offerings are amongst the best in the skies, and Delta has became the first US airline to offer a fully private business class seat, with a door you can close. Naturally – you want to use points or a great deal to give Delta’s A350 or new Suites a spin, so here’s where you can find them flying – and where they’re going next.
Tip: Search for your flight on Google Flights and confirm the aircraft again on the Delta website before booking. There’s always a chance of an aircraft swap and if you encounter one, don’t be afraid to argue you’d like to change to a flight featuring their new prized Airbus A350.

It’s exciting that Delta is rolling these routes out so rapidly. We’ll be keeping close eye on more transatlantic routes, where newer aircraft are currently lacking. We’d expect this plane to feature on premium routes between the West Coast USA and Europe, in the near future, as well as New York JFK. Cashing in SkyMiles for a ticket to Asia or Europe on the A350, especially in business class may be the very best way to maximize your Delta SkyMiles! Here’s why you’ll love the A350.
Will you seek out the new Delta Airbus A350?
