Delta’s first Airbus A350, Ship 3501, left Airbus’ paint shop in Toulouse, France, on June 14th coated in Delta’s signature livery as the aircraft prepares to be delivered in July.
The state-of-the-art widebody jet had its first test flight two weeks ago and will undergo additional flight testing in France before being handed over to Delta, Ship 3501 is expected to enter service this fall on Trans-Pacific routes. Delta will be the first U.S. carrier to take delivery of the A350.
Delta’s flagship A350 will feature the carrier’s highly-anticipated Delta One Suites in addition to a new premium economy product called Delta Premium Select. In total, the aircraft will be configured with 32 seats in the Delta One cabin, 48 seats in Delta Premium Select, and 226 seats in economy. The airline’s A350-900XWB aircraft will also see Gogo’s 2Ku Wi-Fi service, which offers high-speed, gate-to-gate Internet access throughout the globe. Passengers can also expect larger overhead bins and LED mood lighting. Delta’s new A350 will become the airlines flagship international aircraft, and it is expected to begin flying for the airline later this year. Delta says the A350 will be deployed on its international routes across the Pacific, though carriers typically first break in new plane types on shorter domestic routes to help familiarize flight and ground crews with the aircraft.
