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.
Delta will utilize newly refreshed 777-200ER aircraft with all new cabins. As part of Delta’s $100 million 777 refurbishment program, these aircraft will be equipped with 28 of our award-winning Delta One suites with a full height door, 18-inch high-resolution entertainment screens, memory foam seats, espresso coffee service and state-of-the-art design with customizable in-suite lighting. The new Delta Premium Select cabin seats 48 with elevated personal service, plated meals, 13.3-inch seat back screens and more space to stretch out with recliner seat rows 38 inches apart. 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.
