I’ve been just a "reader" for quite some time and I was looking for a possible concept or an idea of Delta’s A350-900 seat map; it’s supposed to be delivered around the summer of 2017 then taking its first revenue flight as early as fall 2017. So, I went ahead and created one.
This is a rumored seat map for Delta Airbus A350-900 based on public information posted on Delta Facebook and Delta official website. I designed this seating map using the A330-300 which is available in delta.com website. AGAIN, this is not an official seat map nor a leaked information of any kind. THIS PURELY a copy and paste concept!!! 48 Delta Premium seats, as well as 32 Delta One suites and 226 Main Cabin seats.
From the new sky clubs, new uniforms, I think it’s safe to assume delta will be following Virgin Atlantic steps and introduce the bar in their A350s; as you may have noticed I added the Bar all the way to the front.

Not sure if it's the scaling, or the reality looks like a large amount of area dedicated to business. If so impressive product from a space investment perspective. I would say- and maybe wrong, is that enough Galley space for a long haul flight with 2 potentially 3 meal services? I don't know the size of the 350 rear galley but thought they may new additiaobl stowarages, taking up seats at door three.

I would think Delta will still have 767-400ER's and even some of the later 767-300ER's 10 years from now.
I wonder if the Asian routes currently using 767-300ER's and 330-200's will move to the 350-900 or if Delta will still take the 787-8's and use those on the Asian routes that can't justify a 350-900.

Actually, 150-56 + 394 are supposed to be the first to go in an attempt to standardise engine types in the fleet. Those are ex-Gulf Air and ex-Asiana. Those 7 should go in 2019-20 as the first batch of A339s arrive. The A339s should replace these 763s "1-for-1" on transatlantic routes. In reality, as the A339s have more seats, they will go on the TATL routes that need additional seats. So whether an A339 replaces a B763 or whether an A339 replaces a B764 which in turn replaces A763, who knows. Then 171-179 will go. Those 8 will be replaced by the second batch of A339s on order in 2021.
As you can see, the 767s will be around for a very long time given only 15 of the remaining 85 will be retired by 2022.
