Just curious why you didn't include the reason as stated in the linked article:

Delta has cited delays in deliveries due to the lack of supplies at the Airbus factory in France, saying on The Points Guy: “Because Delta is taking delivery of new A330-900neo aircraft later than initially expected, Delta will debut the industry-leading widebody aircraft on scheduled Seattle-Shanghai service on July 15 instead of July 1.

Meh...

Lack of supplies? What does that even mean?

I think it means they're not getting parts from the subcontractors on time.

Lack of spare Parts? Seat covers? Spare Engines support Equipment? Could be quite a few things, Even up to and including Training... (though I might doubt it)
