Delta Airlines: type of aircraft on Amsterdam flights

Thu Nov 29, 2018 8:01 pm

Anyone can tell what kind of aircraft Delta Airlines will use on Amsterdam services the next few years?
It is likely the Boeing 767 and Airbus A330 flights are replaced by A350-900's? This was used in a calculation by Schiphol airport.

However, a new 2019 DL service from Tampa will use the B767. The LAX service will be A330 in 2019.

I haven't heard anything about A359s replacing the 767/330 jets, but I could potentially see that happening for some of their stronger markets (i.e. ATL, JFK, SEA to AMS)

The A330NEO / A330 / A350-900 in the long term. Delta is so big in AMS you can probably see every type of longhaul plane Delta has at some time.

According to flightaware, DL134 has consistently been operated by an A350 for some time now, replacing what I presume was an A330 https://flightaware.com/live/flight/DAL134/history

I'd be very surprised though if all the A330 routes to AMS were replaced by an A350, though. My semi-educated prediction is that the A350 will be put on the busiest flights between AMS and DTW, JFK, ATL, etc (e.g. 1 or 2 of the multiple daily flights) while the rest will see A330s and 767s replaced by the A330neo in several years time.

With only 15 A359s for the immediate future I would not expect many A350s at AMS other than the current DTW-AMS flight. AMS will be 767 and A330 (ceo and neo) domain.

The single 350 route to AMS is to increase utilization. There's no need for the 350's range on any AMS-USA DL route. Logically, it would be 767/764/332/333, saving the more efficient 339s and 350s for longer routes.

Never fully understood why DL sends the L to AMS.

How about a Delta B757S from Cmh to Ams that would be nice!

Delta doesn’t really need to move to slightly larger aircraft for the busier flights from the larger markets. The beauty of having multiple US hubs and opening up all these secondary US -AMS/CDG routes is that Delta can add and/or upgrade flights elsewhere, shift more connecting traffic onto them, and free up more seats in the big markets for local traffic.

Mostly 764s, 333s, and 339s. You can expect the occasional 772/L or 359 for utilization purposes between longer-range services.
