Delta Air Lines is retiring the iconic Boeing 747 from its fleet in December, and the jumbo jet’s farewell tour will include a stop in Atlanta.
Atlanta-based Delta’s last 747 flight will be Dec. 17 from Seoul to Detroit. The final flight will also be the last 747 to be flown by any U.S. passenger airline — though the jet will fly some charter flights this year before retiring in Arizona in early January. United Airlines retired the 747 from its fleet earlier this month.
On Dec. 19, Delta’s 747 employee farewell tour will stop in Atlanta, in between stops at the airline’s Seattle and Minneapolis-St. Paul hubs. Employees and retirees can buy a seat on the flights starting Nov. 20.
