Delta’s Flagship A350 from Detroit to Tokyo is now Bookable!

Earlier this week, we covered how Delta’s first Airbus A350 just rolled out the Airbus paint shop. We also confirmed that the A350 would be taking it’s inaugural international flight from Detroit to Asia in October. You’re now able to book Delta’s flagship A350 flights with cash or points starting October 30th. The route is not cheap, but I was able to snag the inaugural flight to Tokyo in the fancy new Delta One and a flight back in the new Premium Economy. The cost was 250k SkyMiles round-trip, which isn’t cheap, but I’m a huge #AVgeek and I’m incredibly excited to see what Delta has to offer!

This is the beautiful new product you’re going to want to fly. It’s spendy at 130k SkyMiles one-way (260k round-trip), although it’s much cheaper than the cash price tag of $7600 round-trip. Delta One features a full enclosed suite. This is the product I’m most excited to try out.

 

 

Sample Flight Delta One (one-way)

 

Delta One offers 32 business class suites. I was able to snag seat 7A for the inaugural flight from DTW – NRT. I prefer a window seat and seats 3, 5, and 7 in row A & D look to offer the most privacy. Couples will likely want to fly in row B & C.

Premium Economy starts at 65k SkyMiles one-way on this route (value play is 99k round-trip), and it looks to be a huge upgrade from a typical Economy seat. The cost is only 30k more SkyMiles than normal economy. I think that’s a small price to pay for an upgraded 12 hour flight. Availability is wide open.

Thrifty Tip: Book Premium Economy and your domestic connecting flights will automatically be upgraded to First Class! For example, I am flying from MSP – DTW (First Class) and then DTW – NRT (Premium Economy). The MSP – DTW flight was booked into First Class (instead of Economy or Delta Comfort+)!

Bottom Line 

A lot could change before the October 30th international inaugural flight. It could easily be delayed or even moved up, although the delay is more likely. Delta will first fly the A350 on domestic routes starting in September, so the first revenue flight will likely be from Atlanta or Detroit. I’ll try to snag a seat on that flight as well if the timing works out. If you’ve been looking to book a flight on the October 30th inaugural, I’d recommend doing it ASAP. Award pricing will likely climb pretty quick on this one. If you book shoot me a message. I’d love to see you guys aboard.
