Delta just announced that they would be launching new service between Los Angeles and Shanghai starting July 9, 2015 onboard a Boeing 777-200LR aircraft with 37  seats in BusinessElite, 36 seats in Economy Comfort and 218 seats in Economy class.

Per Delta, “Delta’s new nonstop service provides our business customers with more access to Shanghai and markets beyond through our partnerships with China Eastern Airlines and China Southern Airlines,” said Ranjan Goswami, Delta’s vice president of Sales – West. “This route was the most requested by our corporate customers, and everyone will enjoy the investments we’ve made to upgrade our airport facilities, our onboard service, full flat-bed seats with direct aisle access in BusinessElite, and industry-leading complimentary in-flight entertainment.”

From Los Angeles, Delta currently operates 154 peak-day departures to 48 destinations and has continued expanding both international and domestic service over the past few months, including London-Heathrow in October; Monterrey, Mexico*; Dallas* and Austin, Texas* in November; as well as Mazatlan, Mexico and Vancouver, Canada* in December.

Bottom Line

Delta is rapidly trying to expand their service out of Los Angeles, and this new additional service to Shanghai allows them to do so. I’d expect them to announce some more international destinations from LAX in the near future.
