Delta adds second eclipse path-of-totality flight

After selling out its first path-of-totality flight, Delta is adding a second option, which will depart from Dallas-Fort Worth and arrive in Detroit together with the other path-of-totality flight.
After selling out its first special flight in under 24 hours, the U.S. mega-carrier has added a second special flight to enjoy or experience a sky view of the eclipse in the path of totality, this time out of Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) on April 8.  

Delta flight 1010 will depart from DFW at 12:30 p.m. CT and arrive in Detroit together with the other path-of-totality flight (DL 1218 from AUS to DTW) at 4:20 p.m. ET*.  

Following the first flight announcement flight, searches for flights from AUS-DTW on Delta channels spiked by more than 1,500%**.  

DL 1010 will be operated on an A321neo — a larger plane than the AUS-DTW A220-300 — to allow more customers to experience the eclipse path of totality. The A321neo is Delta’s most fuel-efficient aircraft featuring 20 domestic First Class seats, 42 Delta Comfort+ seats and 132 Main Cabin seats, all with memory foam cushioning for improved comfort.

*While Delta flight plans have been designed to maximize time within the path of totality, this is subject to change due to factors outside of Delta’s control such as weather and air traffic control that could impact timing and aircraft.  

**Searches on Tues., Feb. 20, as compared to the average search volume between Feb. 1-18.
