MSP-FCO will be on a 76Z

DTW-MUC will be on a 76D

Lots of new transatlantic flights next year. CDG-RDU, JFK-EDI, LHR-SLC and now these two. There are also extra JFK-TLV and JFK-KEF flights
The MSP-FCO route was almost launched this summer, according to comments made at a MAC commission meeting this past winter. They didn't say the destination, just that Delta had agreed to launch an additional trans-Atlantic route, but requested a delay of one summer so it could have more time for marketing a promotion.

It was pretty obvious, however, that it was either FCO or FRA. FCO is a great jumping off point for southern Europe. While I'd still love to see a flight to PVG from MSP, I'm thrilled to add FCO to the roster. Summer seasonal, I assume, just like DTW.
