Delta is phasing in yet another of its highly rated Airbus A350s on a European route through its headquarters in Atlanta. According to Routes Online, Delta will slot in an A350-900XWB on one of its three daily flights between Atlanta (ATL) and Amsterdam (AMS) beginning on Sept. 1, 2019.
Since launching its business-class Delta One Suites in November 2017, Delta has been busy adding new Airbus A350 routes featuring what is likely the best business-class cabin on a US airline. You can read our most recent review of Delta One Suites aboard the A350 here. More recently, Delta began retrofitting its newest business-class hard product on its 18 Boeing 777s. TPG was onboard to review the 777 version of the Delta One Suites.
Delta is also retrofitting its fleet of Boeing 767-400ERs to feature Delta One Suites, and we’ll be aboard the inaugural Airbus A330-900neo flight in July when it begins servicing Seattle (SEA) to Shanghai (PVG) with all four of Delta’s branded seating options. Those are Delta One Suites, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin (economy).
With an increasing number of Delta One Suites aircraft in the skies, there have been many new route announcements and updates. So we’ve compiled a full list of the routes — including the newest, ATL-AMS.

Delta’s inaugural ATL-AMS flight on the A350 is on sale now, with cash prices ranging from $3,189 (economy) to $8,559 (Delta One Suites).
On the SkyMiles award front, it appears that now would be the time to book a trip in Premium Select, given that it’s pricing out lower than Main Cabin. I suspect that both cash and mileage rates will be tweaked once the new route has a chance to fully settle into the system.
