The revamped 777-200/200ERs also have a premium economy cabin, Delta Premium Select, which offers 48 seats with 38 inches of pitch and a 13.3-inch seat-back screen.
Main cabin seats, meanwhile, will be laid out nine-abreast in a 3-3-3 configuration and are “the widest in the Delta international fleet”, according to the carrier. All classes also have access to wifi and in-seat USB and power ports.
“This additional Delta flight will be an exciting way for many of our customers in Minnesota and in cities across the US to access Seoul and dozens of destinations in Asia with one convenient connection in the world-class Terminal 2 at Incheon,” said Steve Sear, Delta’s president – international and executive vice president, global sales.
“We look forward to April when the inaugural flight takes off from both airports, signifying how the Delta-Korean Air joint venture benefits our customers, our employees, the communities we serve and our shareholders.”
Delta currently operates just one other trans-Pacific flight out of its Minnesota/St Paul hub, to Tokyo Haneda, which will also see the refurbished 777-200ER starting this November.
