Delta Air Lines Announces Airbus A350 Flights From Los Angeles To Brisbane

by Staff

Summary

  • Delta Air Lines adds Brisbane to its winter schedule, boasting up to 17 weekly flights to the South Pacific.
  • Passengers connecting through Los Angeles can access over 40 destinations, making travel more convenient.



Delta Air Lines has announced its newest international route. From December 4, Delta will fly nonstop from Los Angeles to Brisbane.


Heading to Queensland

Following in the footsteps of its major American competitors, Delta Air Lines has announced it will launch nonstop service to Brisbane. At the beginning of the month, American Airlines announced its own route from Dallas, which will launch in October. Delta’s seasonal route will run three times weekly from December 4 to March 8, 2025. Flights will be operated by the airline’s flagship Airbus A350-900s, which can carry 306 passengers in a four-cabin configuration, including the famous Delta One (business class).

American Airlines is set to launch daily flights between Dallas and Brisbane in October, with services running through the winter travel season.

With the addition of Brisbane flights, Delta will have up to 17 weekly flights to the South Pacific this summer (winter in the US), making it the largest winter schedule in the region in the airline’s history. In today’s announcement, Delta highlighted the tourism opportunities available through the new route, including, but not limited to, art galleries, food markets, the world’s largest koala sanctuary, and nearby Gold Coast. On the other end, passengers traveling on Delta will have access to more than 40 destinations through a connection at Los Angeles International Airport.

Additional options for passengers

Two years ago, no US carrier flew to Brisbane. United Airlines became the first airline to launch flights in October 2022, when it began three weekly flights to Brisbane Airport. Unlike American and Delta’s plans, United launched year-round flights from the get-go. The San Francisco route operated thrice weekly through October 2023, and in November, its flights increased to daily. According to data from Cirium, United will operate daily flights through March and then drop to three times weekly before picking up again in November.

Last December, United launched a second route to Brisbane from its hub at LAX. Like its services to SFO, United began with just three weekly flights. Less than three weeks after the launch of LAX-BNE, Simple Flying reported that United would end the route earlier for unknown reasons. Initially, United planned to operate flights through March 27 but cut the route on February 14 instead. Despite the cut, United has the largest network of any American carrier between Australia and the US.


New American Airlines service

Brisbane, Australia’s third-largest city, still stands to benefit from additional services to North America. Currently, its only connections are to San Francisco on United, Qantas to LAX, and Air Canada to Vancouver. As mentioned above, American and Delta recently announced services from Dallas Fort Worth, and Los Angeles, respectively. American’s route will launch on October 26.

Flights from DFW will be operated daily on brand-new Boeing 787-9s, which American will receive from Boeing this year. The new Dreamliners will feature the new Flagship Suite seats unveiled in September 2022. The suites will be installed on new 787 deliveries beginning this year, and the airline also plans to retrofit some of its Boeing 777-300ERs to include the new onboard product.
