Good news for astronomy lovers — after selling out its first special flight in under 24 hours, Delta is giving customers a second shot at 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 last week’s announcement of the first path-of-totality 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.
