Re: Delta Widebody Thread - 2018

DTW-HKG and CDG would be 2 more. CDG seems like the second-most likely European A350 destination. LHR would be cool to see, most likely out of ATL, DTW, and or JFK, but that seems like more of an A330-900neo route. The 339 is perfect for LHR-JFK/ATL/DTW as well as SEA-Asia, those would be the perfe...
