What are all of Delta's routes using the 777-200 and what routes will be getting 777s in the near future?

Routes are ATL-MCO, ATL-LGW, ATL-MAN, ATL-CDG, and CVG-CDG. Delta has 1 777 coming next month (N867DA) too. One reason for the (few) amount of routes is that the 777s are going under an interior renovations, switching from the 2-5-2 to 3-3-3 and adding the overhead crew rest area.

When are they going to have 777s flying with the 3-3-3 layout and when will all of them be flying with that layout?

Delta also operates the 777 from JFK to CDG.

A couple of points from a Delta 777 addict:

As of today, Delta currently has 5 B777s flying the line. Ship 7005 (N864DA), christened The Soaring Spirit II, is currently sitting in SLC. This aircraft will be running a series of JFK-SLC charters for the duration of the Winter Olympic Games.

Ship 7002 (N861DA) is currently in Johannesburg, South Africa. Delta, in partnership with Boeing, flew 7002 down there to demonstrate the aircraft to South African. Unfortunately, Delta is in talks with SA about selling Ship 7008 and leasing Ships 7001 and 7002 to South African on a 36 month lease. Yesterday, 7002 suffered an engine surge and aborted the takeoff run on the first demonstration flight of the day. We still don't know when it will be possible to fly 7002 back to ATL and get the bird into the TechOps Center to be looked at.

The silver lining, if there is any, is that the deal, which by most accounts was a longshot at best, now appears to be all but dead. South African has announced that it is not interested in rescheduling with Boeing and/or Delta to make up the demonstration flights, and Airbus is said to be offering a sweetheart deal on the A340-600s that were meant for the Flightlease deal with Swissair. So it is very possible--maybe even likely--that Delta will end up taking delivery of Ship 7008 in March and operating the bird as originally planned, if for no other reason than their inability to remarket the aircraft.

As of today, Delta's B777s are scheduled on 2 daily MCO turns from ATL, 1 daily ATL-CDG roundtrip, 1 daily ATL-LGW roundtrip, 1 daily ATL-MAN roundtrip, and 1 daily CVG-CDG roundtrip.

As of April 7, Delta's B777s are scheduled on:

DL16/17 JFK/CDG
DL44/43 CVG/CDG
DL144/145 ATL/CDG
DL22/21 ATL/CDG
DL1976/168 ATL/MCO
DL1978/1975 ATL/MCO
DL58/59 ATL/LGW

This of course is contingent on the airline taking delivery of Ship 7008 and operating the aircraft in revenue service as well as not leasing out any of the seven B777s currently operating in revenue service for Delta.

Delta currently does not have any B777 at TIMCO in GSO undergoing interior reconfiguration. In the wake of the September 11 Disaster, it was decided that the interior modifications could be put aside until Delta's financial situation is stabilized. Ship 7002 is currently in a 50J 218Y 3-3-3 configuration with overhead crew rest areas for both the flight deck and cabin crews. Ship 7008 will be delivered in a 50J 218Y 3-3-3 configuration but without the crew rest areas, which will have to be installed at a later time, should Delta keep the aircraft as part of the fleet. The remaining 6 B777s will remain in the 52J 225Y 2-5-2 configuration until they are sent one-by-one to GSO for the interior mods.

Despite the possibility of leasing some aircraft and the reality of suspending work on the interior modifications to existing aircraft, Delta management has made it very clear to us that they are committed to the B777 program at Delta Air Lines and that we will be operating at least 12 B777s by 2005 and that the interior mods by TIMCO will go forward once Delta's financial situation is stabilized.



It's a new day. Every moment matters. Now, more than ever.

Thanks from me too! I wish that the 777s would go to more cities than London, Paris, and Orlando, from a few US cities. It would be great to see the 777 at airports like ZRH, AMS, FRA, and GRU. Is the 777 not going back onto the ATL-DUB/SNN-SNN/DUB-ATL flights in the spring and summer? My mom flew them last year in the summer for business and they were in Delta's winter timetable, but now the MD-11s have replaced them on the route. I hope the 777s are back on the Ireland routes from ATL by the spring because there is a good chance I'll be flying the ATL-DUB route on Delta in April or May and I hate the MD-11s. I flew them on these flights: ATL-BRU BRU-ATL. It was awful.

Wow, 3-3-3 configuration in Delta 777s. Maybe is good for the middle seat passenger in the middle of the plane but bad for the window passengers. Anyway, Delta will offer a great service with the new configuration or with the old.

From accounts I'm receiving, Boston-Gatwick is not doing that well for Delta, so no sense hoping for a 777 anytime soon (if at all) on that route. With quite a bit of fanfare, Delta announced major plans for Boston, including terminal expansions and European routes. Although I'm sure the former will happen, the latter may not if the fortunes of the Gatwick run are any indication.
