Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic announced updates to their 2018 summer schedules between the United States and the United Kingdom.

As part of the schedule change, Delta will begin using Airbus A330 aircraft on its service to London Heathrow from Atlanta, Detroit, and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport on March 24, 2018. The planes are equipped with 34 lie-flat seats in Delta One, arranged in a herringbone configuration, each with a width of 21” and a pitch of 80”.

On March 25, Delta and Virgin will change the carriers’ eight daily flights between New York and London, with Delta operating two flights and Virgin operating six. Currently, Delta flies three, while Virgin operates five.

Between the two airlines, a total of 37 peak daily non-stop flights between the United States and the United Kingdom will be offered next summer.

Delta and Virgin Atlantic began a joint venture partnership in 2013, giving antitrust immunity to both airlines on routes between North America and the United Kingdom.
