Starting on the 30th of March they are replacing the 777 with the 77L on the JFK-BOM run.

And can someone list the 777 and 77L routes on delta please. Unless I make a list before you can reply. Big grin

With 8 additional 772LRs joining the DL fleet over the next 18 months or so, what additional routes or forthcoming routes will get 777 service? ATL-JNB?

it has yet to be said but if i had to guess ATL-HKG,ATL-DEL,ATL-BOM,JFK-DEL........I think they will wait on non stop ATL-JNB but i do see that in the future ATL-JNB along with ATL-CPT and JFK-JNB or CPT will become non-stop with 77Ls

Thanks...I think ATL-GRU is all 764s for the time being. Summer it goes Tue Sun on a 777.

Those would be awesome routes DeltaL1011man!!!

If I were to guess, I'd say ATL-JNB nonstop has priority over all those other routes.

Quoting DeltaL1011man (Reply 6):

I don't think CPT needs to be served nonstop to both JFK and ATL. Just one service to JFK is fine. However, JFK-JNB might not be a bad idea if the route further proves the needed capacity and cargo. Still though, seems like a long shot.

Still, we haven't heard an announcement about JFK-NRT. Remember when that route 'leaked' some time last year by Hauenstein that it was to be announced as a new route? I'd much rather see the 772ER on JFK-NRT than ATL-GRU.



The proper term is "on final" not "on finals" bud...

well i said add JFK-NRT with the 77Ls but i got called stupid. I don't know when it will be added but soon i hope.

with ATL-DKR-JNB going to a 764 and adding JFK-DKR-CPT and DKR-NBO. I really think DL is going to wait(for now) on JNB nonstops

ATL-HKG would be 2 a/c
ATL-DEL and ATL-BOM might be able to go with 2 a/c
JFK-DEL and JFK-BOM might be able to go with 2 a/c

talk is DL will order 7 more 77Ls this spring (along with more 73Gs)
I have also seen something about DL leasing 773As(with RR Trent 892s) for routes like ATL/JFK-LHR/CDG and ATL-GIG/GRU
and again talk of DL ordering 77Ws
and i would guess ATL-PVG,ATL-PEK,ATL-NRT, LAX-PEK,LAX-PVG,LAX-NRT,LAX-SYD,LAX-MEL,LAX-SIN,LAX-ICN

"Delta is focusing flying more direct routes overseas and will also target the business traveler. In addition to Shanghai and London-Heathrow, Delta will seek routes to Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney and another frequency to Japan."

Oh it's fine. I say stupid things every day!!

I'm wondering if UA is going to beat DL with going to every continent. They could start a IAD-JNB or ACC or LOS flight. But they have no planes to spare and probably not going to get any new ones soon.
