A321neos with Delta One Suites Supposedly Arriving in Q3 2024

According to the very knowledgeable, and often correct, xJonNYC on Twitter/X, Delta's A321neos with 16 Delta One Suites, 12 Premium Select seats, 54 Comfort+ seats, and 66 main cabin seats will be entering into the fleet in the third quarter of this year.

Will be great to see these replace the 75S on transcons- the D1 cabins in those are definitely getting a bit long in the tooth.

Curious when DL will decide to start selling PS as PS on routes like JFK-SFO, BOS-LAX and DCA-LAX

Apparently, Airbus has to get the cabin layout with doors approved by the FAA.

Bye bye D1 upgrades unless you book PS and use a cert!

I wonder what the service in C+ (lol) or PS will be like. It's probably not a bad move, if it doesn't work out financially for them, they could easily move these aircraft to some thin international routes and market all four.

Just to be clear, does this mean lie-flats in premium transcon routes like LAX-JFK?

DL could have put the mid cabin lavatory right behind PS... won't be pleasant for PS pax to have to walk far back to Y to use the lavatories

DL currently has a D1 (lie flat) product on LAX-JFK, LAX-DCA.

What that post was referring to was having a PS cabin as well, which DL hasn't sold/marketed on these domestic transcon flights in the past.

Will be nice replacement for the 757 D1 config, assuming they're going to be using these on BOS-LAX etc. Just bummed that it means harder to get upgrades with certs... and the small PS cabin also means that will likely be sold out well before D1, and no way to upgrade directly into D1 then with a cert, assuming you'd have to be in PS to upgrade directly to D1 in advance.

Probably have to wait for some information/clarification on how both comp and cert upgrades will work on these domestic D1 routes with PS.

Does anyone know the range of these birds? Could they be planning to deploy them on short transatlantic routes?

If you are talking about RUCs on domestic D1 routes, the T&Cs make it clear they are only good for a one-class upgrade and so you wouldn't be able to go directly from coach to D1 when there is a PS cabin (they are already restricted on D1 routes as they actually require upgrade inventory, and not just Z, for upgrades). The RUC T&Cs have already been updated and reference domestic PS cabin upgrades. Not sure about GUCs on domestic D1 routes, but would assume it is likely the same (T&Cs don't distinguish between domestic and international PS). Domestic D1 routes are comp upgrade eligible to D1 on day-of-departure no matter which class you are booked in. There are already domestic D1 flights with PS marketing on flights to/from Hawaii.

There's the over wing emergency exit immediately behind the PS cabin. They'd have to put it a few more rows back and then it'd be in the middle of the C+ section and likely would throw the rows off balance. Seems the current placement is best.

No doubt, exactly as you said. The same way it currently works for the HNL routes that do sell PS, most likely.

Why do carriers almost always make premium economy comically tiny? 3 rows? come on man.

Not only more modern, but this is a 1-1 config, whereas the 75S is 2-2
