Extract from Delta's CEO's memo

An important tool to help us achieve these goals is retiring older aircraft and modernizing our fleet as we plan for the future. We’ve already accelerated the retirement plan for the MD-88s and MD-90s, and parked more than 650 jets total. With international travel expected to return slowly, we’ve also made the difficult decision to permanently retire our Boeing 777 fleet – 18 aircraft – by the end of the year. Our A330s and A350-900s, which are more fuel-efficient and cost-effective, will perform long-haul flying as international demand returns.

Retiring a fleet as iconic as the 777 is not an easy decision – I know it has a direct impact on many of you who fly, crew and service these jets. The 777 played an important role with Delta since 1999, allowing us to open new long-haul markets and grow our international network as we transformed into a global airline. I’ve flown on that plane often and I love the customer experience it has delivered over the years.

I dont believe either can do the route, so its not a presumption, when you take into account alternate options. Max payload range is 10K on the A350 and the A330-900 is just under that distance as well. Both have steep declines in performance from there should load limits be imposed.

Forbes.com are now reporting that Delta are to operate the A350-900 on the LAX-SYD route as well as the ATL- JNB , which is Deltas longest flight . The A350-900 will carry 16 more pax than the 777 and carries 9% more volumetric cargo and is 21% cheaper / seat mile too .
