Delta will make its return to India on Dec. 22 with the
launch of daily New York-Mumbai service. Tickets go on sale this weekend.
The carrier will operate the flights on a refreshed Boeing
777-200LR featuring a Delta One business class, a Delta Premium Select cabin
and coach cabin divided between Comfort Plus and standard economy seating.
Delta will compete against the thrice-weekly service of Air
India on the route as well as against daily Newark-Mumbai flights operated by
United and Air India.
Delta last flew to India in 2015 with a one-stop route that
went from JFK to Amsterdam and on to Mumbai.
The carrier announced last May that it planned a return to
Mumbai this year but did not reveal the launch date or the U.S. gateway.
