This has to be a result of AA/US cxld PHL/TLV and DL saw an opportunity to pick up some extra seats as that flight always seems full!

Sucks that its still a 777. The D1 seats and IFE on that equip are really showing their age compared to the rest of DL's lie flat fleet.

I wonder if they'll have wifi installed by then.

Has anyone seen information on proposed times/days?

Does available for sale Saturday mean Friday at midnight? Some other time?

DL pulled the 744 last year at the same time they pulled it from NRT-JFK, since the aircraft operating the flight comes from NRT.

Have patience. You will be able to see the incremental flights in the schedule soon enough.

The new flights will be available for sale beginning Saturday.
