Delta's flight schedule remains subject to change due to the evolving nature of COVID-19, customer demand and government travel regulations.

Delta is the North American launch customer for the A350-900, which redefines the international onboard experience with the award-winning Delta One suites, the new Delta Premium Select cabin and the Main Cabin. The Delta One Suites offer up to 32 customers a private, personal experience, with a full-height door at every suite for enhanced privacy and comfort. Each suite features a fully flat-bed seat with direct aisle access, as well as more stowage for personal items, larger in-flight entertainment screens and memory foam enhanced comfort cushions. Designed with comfort in mind, Delta Premium Select offers more personal space with up to 38 inches of pitch, seat width of 18.5 inches, seven inches of recline and adjustable leg and headrests. Customers in all cabins can enjoy free mobile messaging via iMessage, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger to stay connected with people on the ground and exchange real-time messages in flight. The long-range Airbus A350 first flew to Sydney on October 25, 2020, and continues Delta's optimization of its Pacific network, operating primarily on long-range transpacific routes.

Delta has added more than 100 layers of protection through its Delta Care Standard, such as regularly sanitizing high-touch surfaces and replacing onboard industrial-grade HEPA filters twice as often as recommended. To give customers extra peace of mind when flying, Delta also extended middle seat blocking through April 30, 2021 – the only U.S. airline to do so.

Even as Delta has doubled down on its investment in safety and cleanliness, it also continues to invest in offering a superior customer experience and award-winning hospitality, including refreshing more than 300 new in-flight entertainment options and recently announced plans to bring high-speed Wi-Fi onboard this year.

Delta is accelerating the Delta Sky Way terminal modernization project at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) – a $1.86 billion project to modernize, upgrade and connect Terminals 2, 3, and the Tom Bradley International Terminal that will now be ready in mid-2023.

When completed, the modern LAX facility will offer more security screening capacity, automated security lanes, more gate-area seating and Delta's largest Delta Sky Club. This is in addition to all the amenities that Delta customers have come to expect at LAX, including the Delta ONE at LAX check-in space and a world-class concession program in partnership with Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield Corporation.
