In the battle between Delta and Alaska Airlines in Seattle, Delta has made their latest move by announcing new service from Seattle to Chicago O’Hare. The new service will begin on June 19, 2017 and will operated three times a day using Airbus A319 aircraft.

Delta Air Lines

Per Delta,

Delta Air Lines is adding three daily flights to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (ORD) from Seattle and will now serve all of the top 10 Seattle destinations as the airline continues its fifth consecutive year of growth at its Pacific Northwest hub. Chicago flights are now available for sale, and service will begin June 19, 2017.

The flights will operate using Airbus A319 aircraft featuring high-resolution screens at every seat with free entertainment, 110v and USB power ports available for all customers, large pivoting overhead bins, ambient lighting and newly designed lavatories.

These new flights will be available for sale on Delta.com, including using SkyMiles. If you are looking for a way to earn even more miles, The Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card earns you 30,000 bonus miles after you make $1,000 in purchases on your new Card within your first 3 months. The Delta Reserve® Credit Card earns you 10,000 Medallion® Qualification Miles (MQMs) and 10,000 bonus miles after your first purchase on the Card. The Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card earns you 35,000 bonus miles after you spend $1,000 in purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months.

Bottom Line:

Delta is really trying to increase their Seattle service, and this latest announcement doesn’t come as a surprise to me as the battle between Alaska Airlines and Delta continues to heat up in Seattle.

Earlier this year, Delta Launched Several New Routes from Seattle, so adding Chicago will allow to feed even more connections through Delta’s Asia gateway city.

  1. This is great news because I’m guessing that there aren’t a lot of Delta platinum and diamond medallions in Chicago, as compared with Minneapolis and Detroit. It could mean significantly higher chances at an upgrade for the flight to Seattle.
