I believe the 777 seats are slightly wider than the A350 (and certainly A330) seats so they will likely have to be scrapped unless someone is able to do some seat surgery. Possibly some of the mechanicals can be reused but I am not a seat expert.
At the end of the day, the is cash already spent on the refurbs, and in this environment, cash means everything. So it is a sunk cost that means nothing to Delta.
That is not too bright on delta's part if they send brand new expensive seats like that to the desert for scrapping. even economy seats...maybe they can use them to refurbish current aircraft atleast?
