    The website shows the switch to a 777 on that date as you noted, but if you search those flights, you’ll see they’re only selling DL One and economy. Comfort Plus disappears from sale on that route with the switch to the “777” from the 747. This is also different from the 777 operated MSP-HND flight, where Comfort Plus is available. That’s also likely a sign that the 350 is scheduled to start that route on that day, since they won’t have a Comfort Plus “cabin” anymore. I suspect they won’t show the new Premium Select cabin either until they publicly load the 350 to the schedule.

    On September 5th they have a 747 from Lax to DTW with no first/business for sale.

    Barry, that’s because a Facebook group for Delta Diamond Medallions got slightly early word of that flight’s scheduling, and immediately bought out the DL One seats for a party flight. All but a handful of seats were sold to that group, as well as a decent number of the Comfort Plus seats.

      Thanks . It did seem odd that the F seats sold out quickly for a red eye flight.

      The group had filled up the entire upper deck and most of the main deck DL One seats before word ever broke on FT that the flight was on the schedule.
