The A350 once ready for transpacific flying will be flying out of DTW replacing 747 service.

Not only for transpacific only, but transatlantic looks ready too, I bet next is DTW-LHR is the next one.

The 350 was selected to replace the 747. It'll be those first and as more are added they'll use it on other routes. My guess for Asian expansion.

I guess not only for Asian expansion, but for Africa and European expansion too.
The best plane I've flown is an A380. They were the biggest and the best than other plane I've been on. :lol:

I would not be surprised at all to see one DTW-AMS rotation being operated by an A350 at some point next summer, after it does some domestic flying. The pilots will need to get used to the plane and a route like DTW-AMS would provide a good opportunity before they start flying to Asia.

Why is Delta replacing the 77L with the A350 on LAX-SYD? Where will the 77L be re-deployed?

With the elimination of several Asian destinations, e.g., BKK, and delivery of the A350, which Asian destinations will still exist that can't be served from DTW, SEA or LAX?

From what I understand, the 77L will be deployed at either DTW or SEA while ATL and LAX will receive the A350 first.

Wrong. Not even flight ops has a guess as to where the 350 will be based at, all they put in their weekly newsletter last week was that they "expect" it to be in Detroit. Nothing is set in stone.

Thank you for pointing that out because as we all know with Delta they say one thing and do another so until the A350 is on the property here at DTW and the base is announced I believe nothing that the Delta propaganda team puts out there. Delta also said that DTW would be their premier gateway to Asia and that is no longer the truth as Asian connections get diverted away from DTW little by little.
the truth does matter, guys. too bad it's often quite subjective. the truth is beyond the mere facts and figures. it's beyond good and bad, right and wrong...

The first A350 should be on property in about 9 months. One would assume that clarity on initial "base" should be known very soon due to lead time in pilot and cabin crew training from that base. Routes won't come until later but base should be known very soon i would think.

FWIW, the plane will be delivered sometime in May, and then it will be outfitted with 2KU and other mods at Airbus Corporate Jet Center. The commitment is to have it in revenue service by September.

I think any airline would want to leave DTW if they had to listen to your whining all of the time...

Any idea which domestic routes (if any) the A350 will fly during its "break-in" period? I'd guess between hubs like DTW-ATL, maybe even a few LAX-JFK legs?
