UPDATE (Tuesday, Aug. 13, at 12:10 p.m. ET): Delta Air Lines’ first reconfigured Boeing 767-400ER made its international debut on Monday, operating as Delta Flight 61 from Atlanta to Rio de Janeiro. It was set to make the return to Atlanta on Tuesday as Delta Flight 60.

Initially, the reconfigured 767-400ER had appeared set to make its debut to Lima on Tuesday, but the aircraft was instead slotted onto Rio de Janeiro flight, Delta spokesman Michael Thomas said to TPG.

ORIGINAL POST: Delta Air Lines’ first retrofitted Boeing 767-400ER appears set to begin international service Tuesday.

The 19-year old Boeing 767-400ER, registered N828MH, will fly from Atlanta to Lima on Tuesday, departing Atlanta at 5:52pm, according to FlightRadar24. The return is scheduled to depart Lima at 9am on Wednesday for Atlanta. Delta confirmed the aircraft is currently scheduled to be on the route, which would be the first international service for the newly reconfigured 767-400ER.

So far, it’s the first and so far only of Delta’s 767s to feature the airline’s flagship interior, with a brand new Delta One business-class product in the forward cabin and Premium Select — Delta’s spin on premium economy — right behind. Behind that, there are Comfort+ seats, or regular coach with some more legroom, and Main Cabin.

Since re-entering service about a month ago, the plane has been shuttling back and forth between New York and Los Angeles.

TPG managed to snag a seat on the plane’s first run between the coasts, and we found that the new product was a welcome refresh from the old configuration. In Delta One, the plane features an open suite-style seat, and a new dedicated premium economy cabin, branded “Premium Select,” in addition to regular economy and Comfort+ seating options.

However, the seatback entertainment system was not working on the review flight, and according to the airline, it still hasn’t gone into operation.
