As the Coronavirus situation pushes on, Delta Airlines is grounding 300 of its aircraft and is cutting flights to mainland Europe. The airline says that this 40% cut in capacity is the largest reduction of flights in its history, including those months following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
American carrier Delta Airlines will begin operating Seoul Incheon to Manila route and vice versa in March 2020 utilizing its Airbus A330-900NEO aircraft. This comes in the wake of the airline pulling out of its Tokyo Narita hub. Presently, Delta flies from Manila to the United States via Narita. Recently, the DOT granted Delta an additional 12 slots at Tokyo Haneda.
Delta has announced that it will be flying its newly delivered Airbus A330-900NEOs to Asia, and last July 10, they flew its NEO from Seattle to Shanghai, according to a report from Forbes. Out of the 80 new airplanes on order by Delta, 35 of them are the A330-900NEOs and now, we take a look at the interiors of this new aircraft. The airline will also be adding routes to Seoul, South Korea, and Narita, Japan from Seattle. We are still unsure if Delta will use this to Manila.
