Delta Air Lines has announced plans to launch new nonstop service from Minneapolis/St. Paul to Seoul-Incheon starting in 2019, which will be operated by one of their refreshed 777-200ER aircraft with all new cabins, which will feature Delta One suites.
This will be Delta’s fourth destination from Seoul, as the airline currently serves Atlanta, Detroit, and Seattle/Tacoma. A specific start date of this new service hasn’t yet been announced.

The 220 all-new Main Cabin seats are the widest in the Delta international fleet in a 9-abreast configuration furnished with personal screens, unlimited premium entertainment and complimentary earbuds. The new cabins all enjoy in-seat USB and 110V power ports, inflight WiFi and new dynamic LED lighting that varies by phase of flight fostering a relaxing, refreshing environment onboard.
The service will be Delta’s second trans-Pacific nonstop flight from its MSP hub, complementing existing service to Tokyo-Haneda, where Delta also intends to deploy the refurbished 777-200ER aircraft in 2019.
