Flight schedule changes have struck Delta!
In the past few days Delta announced that they will retire all their Boeing 777-200LR and 200ER widebody aircraft by the end of this year (inefficient.) We just received what will likely be the first of many flight change notices for our Jan 2021 Jordan & Egypt and follow-on trips.
In addition to a schedule change that we can't make and which forces me to find alternate routing, we are losing our first and maybe last chance to experience Delta's new Delta One suites on the flight to Amman. What makes this incredible, is Delta just finished spending (wasting?) millions to refurbish and upgrade the interiors of all aircraft in their 777 fleet. Maybe someday we'll have a chance to experience suites on Delta's similarly equipped A350-900.
Though we shouldn't have to pay any more for new flights since Delta initiated the change, to add insult to injury, the price has gone up about $2000 per business class ticket for similar routing but lesser aircraft!
Then again, figure the odds our trip won't be cancelled, too.
