DL predominantly uses B777 on Asian routes, with the exception of ATL-DXB & ATL-JNB. The B777 is sporadically seen at European airports for en-route diversions or special charters. This seasonal equipment change will operate until 28 February 2013 when the A330 returns.
These winter months AMS sees the following weekly DL flights operated by A332, A333, B767, B777:

An interesting down-gauge in capacity. Perhaps the A333 is being used to South America instead? Is there more cargo carried on this route during the winter months or is this just a capacity adjustment to allow more seats to go South?

Quoting NASCARAirforce (Reply 19): I don't recall a 752 being used DTW-AMS. I know it was used on a few other DTW routes to Europe and places like BDL-AMS
One DTW-AMS flight was operated on those reconfigured 752s while routes like BDL-AMS were operating in order to rotate the 752s back to DTW rather than using an internationally configured plane on a DTW-BDL sector.
