Pretty self explanatory. Do you think they will go with more of the T7's or the more fuel efficient 787's in the future?


Next flights: WN DSM-LAS-PHX, US PHX-SJD.

Future? Delta is worrying about seeing the future before they can worry about what aircraft they're gonna order.


Twinjets...if one fails, work the other one twice as hard!!!

Delta currently can't afford to make a large order of long haul a/c!

If they could, DL would order more 777's and maybe some 787's!

Rob!

Well, DL does have 5 outstanding 772s on order, however they were deferred until a later date. I've also heard rumors that DL wants to sell these 5 particular 777s or at least their delivery slots. As for Delta to order the 787,.. hell, anything is possible if DL can improve their financial health. Let remember that Delta, along with American & Northwest are the only 3 legacy carriers left not to have file for Chapter 11...yet. I hope it stays that way. Regards.

I think given that DL returns to profitability, they would be best served by replacing the 762/763/764/777 with the 787. This would save money in terms of maintenance and training and all sorts of other things.

If routes like ATL-NRT and ATL-CDG need more capacity, they can increase the frequencies. For instance, ATL-LGW is 4x daily with the 763.

Regardless, DL needs to do something about its international fleet. The 763 is very comfortable from a passenger standpoint, but these planes need to be made-over with PTVs, better seats, redesigned BizElite, etc.

If they can spin off DLC they'll be ordering the 787.
