Delta Air Lines' N501DA

Delta Air Lines is sending their first A321-271NX, N501DA (msn 10437, f/n 5001), to HNL from SEA as DAL9959. This is the aircraft's first long-distance over-water flight since its delivery flight in March, and is being used for test and proving flights, as well as ground training (especially since Delta's A321s do not fly here). It's not known when Delta will implement their A321Ns into Hawai‘i service, but the airline currently has only two in their fleet, with another 150+ on firm order.

02 May 2022 UPDATE
N501DA returned to SEA under the same flight number.

04 May 2022 UPDATE
N501DA made another trip to HNL, and will return to SEA the next day.
