The delivery schedule for the first A350-900 Delta Air Lines remains unchanged. In 2017, the US carrier would receive 5 A350-900 aircraft. They will come equipped with Delta One Suite and Premium Select cabins.
The new permutations would help the air carrier to be more efficient in operation, depending on market demands.
