Delta’s Full List Of Airbus A220 Routes – Two Plane Layouts

by Miles Jackson

Delta is continuing to take deliveries of its brand new Airbus A220 planes — and they’re headed all over the country. Last year, Delta expanded their order for the A220 aircraft. Delta ordered a total of 95 Airbus A220 aircraft. This includes 45 A220-100s, and 50 A220-300s. These aircraft are quickly becoming a staple in Delta’s fleet. The A220 is replacing less fuel efficient regional and smaller narrowbody planes. So her at PointMe we wanted to share the latest Delta a220 routes with our readers and fans of this new plane.

Delta had its first scheduled transcontinental route with the A220 with a once daily service between Atlanta and Seattle. That route began on June 8, 2020. Since then, we have seen a huge expansion of the routes offered by my favorite US carrier.

As Delta takes delivery of more of these planes, it’s likely there will be routes that are missed from the list below. However, Delta makes it easy to see what plane you are on — they even have a specific designation called “new aircraft” in the booking process.

“New aircraft” label means this flight is flown by an A220

Delta’s Airbus A220 Features

The A220 is a customer-friendly aircraft. We’re talking gate-to-gate Wi-Fi, some of the widest economy seats around, and even a window in the spacious lavatory. Nope, no contorting to use the bathroom here.

Delta’s version of the A220 has a total of 109 seats, including 12 first class seats, 15 Comfort+ seats, and 82 economy seats. It features seatback entertainment at every seat and high-speed Gogo 2Ku Wi-Fi. Seats in economy are an impressive 18.6″ wide, making them the widest economy seats of any narrowbody.

Delta Now Flies the Airbus A220-100 & A220-300 Variant

 

Comparison of Delta A220 Aircraft

Delta’s Two Airbus A220 Aircraft

When we look at Delta’s fleet of the new A220, the airline operates both a A220-100 and the A220-300 aircrafts. What differences will flyers experience between the A220-100 and A220-300? The airplanes have identical flight ranges (2,415 miles, 3887 km,) the big variable is passenger capacity.

There are 109 seats on the Delta A220-100, and 130 seats on the A220-300 aircraft.

Economy Seats                     82                                     88                                       78

Since the pandemic, Delta has been aggressively replacing its fleet of Boeing 717’s. There are approximately 45 left in active service as of this post. All of Delta’s B717’s are scheduled to be retired by 2025.

Delta hopes to continue adding A220’s to its fleet. In addition, Delta has signed an agreement to take delivery of up to 100 Airbus A321neo aircraft. Those deliveries should begin (and put into service) beginning in 2022.

Delta Will Soon Have Domestic A220 Competition

Delta better enjoy its exclusivity with the A220 as long as it can; JetBlue has ordered the aircraft, upping its initial order by another 10 aircraft at the recent Paris Air Show. According to airlineroutes “Jet Blue has firmed up an order for an additional ten A220-300 aircraft from existing options. This follows an initial order for 60 A220 aircraft – announced in July 2018 – will be phased in as replacements for the airline’s existing fleet of 60 Embraer E190 aircraft.”

As Delta continues to take delivery of the A220, there will be even more new routes that be flown on this fantastic plane. While this list includes the routes where an A220 will fly, not all flights are operated by this plane so it’s important to pay attention to the specific aircraft when booking. Also, aircraft swaps are always possible.

All of these flights above are now bookable so if you wanted the chance to try the new bird, get going. We’ll try to continuously update this list as new routes with the A220 are announced.

This is a fantastic aircraft! I was on one of them earlier this year operated by SWISS. Love the huge windows and overhead bins. The bathroom was roomy too.

Delta is smiling ear to ear knowing they didn’t order B737’s!

Flew it last night. Lovely and comfortable aircraft. Haven’t felt this good in economy seats since the 90s. Except for the insanely loud sounds that all Airbus aircraft seem to make during pushback, taxi and after landing. It was like all 100 people in the aircraft were having a collective, strong, loud fart for about 10 minutes.

Bombardier actually designed this plane and brought it to fruition, not Airbus, and it was unfortunately sold to Airbus, which ultimately reassigned it the “A220” moniker. So, are the loud noises on it, which are a staple on other Airbi, really from Airbus (did they change something with the plane) or was it always that way, from Bombardier’s design?

This is fantastic, thanks Jack!

Any chance of DCA or IAD getting the A220 on any flights?

Reply
Chris Dong November 7, 2019 - 9:33 am

Nothing formally announced, but I noticed some unannounced routes like DTW-EWR with the A220 so always worth checking as more of these planes are deployed.

Anony-
Thank you for the comment. I have updated the list, supplied directly to us from Delta (effective May 2021.) Hope this helps you and many more fans of these two great aircraft experience many, many happy & safe flights in the near future!

Lance April 8, 2021 - 12:01 pm

Looks like many of these routes out of MSP are replacing old B717s. I guess now that they are rid of those god-awful MD88/MD90s, they can focus on weeding out the 717s and 757s.

Miles Jackson April 8, 2021 - 12:48 pm

Lance-
Exactly! The pandemic has actually increased the rate of retirement for many of these older aircraft!
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Exclusivity – LOL

It’s a 717 to the average flyer – 2×3 layout

Delta has ‘exclusivity’ on those too – hope there are pilots to fly them. UNITED is rising this time around.

Great list but you missed SLC-SJC. They’ve been flying SJC for a year and a half.

Thanks for the input, however that flight is included in the list. Perhaps it is farther down on your (viewable) screen. If you search SJC in the list’s box, you’ll see the SLC-SJC route.
Thanks for reading!

Searching flights from ORD to SEA until September 7th indicate the A220 -100 Afterwards from September 8th on its showing the 737 -800. Any way to verify that they are changing planes and if so why? Thanks, Roy

Reply
Miles Jackson June 17, 2021 - 6:02 pm

Roy,

This is correct. The A220 non-stop service between ORD and SEA is scheduled to end with the last flight on September 7th.
The Boeing 737-800 is not the Boeing 737MAX (Delta never had these planes in their fleet.)
I am sure the reshuffling of aircraft is in response to Delta’s ongoing ramping up of flights as post-pandemic travel improves passenger loads.
great question and thanks for the due diligence!

Reply
Roy June 18, 2021 - 6:25 am

Thanks for the confirmation. I was going to purchase a 1st class ticket and use my companion credit for my wife but I think I will stick to Comfort Plus and use points and/or some e-credits we have if we end up booking after Sept 7th.
