I know Delta has scheduled one or two to replace some of the MD80's used for the ATL-STL flights. I wouldn't be surprised if they end up adding some 737-800's or 757's for that route when American begins operating the new reduced schedule in/out of STL.

I have no idea why no one answers the question, they just say where they see the plane. To help as much as I can, I was told when I had a friend look up the rotation was 12-16, just about what 762ER said. Now this was before some may have been pulled from the "Death Grips" of Mojave. My understanding is under 20 though.

Their webiste shows 52, though it doesn't breakdown how many are in the desert vs. in service. However, as they list all 52 I would guess it to mean that they intend on bringing all 52 into service. It would at least indicate that they don't consider those planes as retired. For instance, the MD-11 count (and this is from March according the site) is 14, which does not include the plane that they went ahead and set to the desert due to damage. 52 737-200's would be a close replacement of number of seats when compared to the 36 757's that are going to Song service

I was talking to the 737-200 pilot on an ATL-HSV flight, and he said that Delta plans on keeping the 737-200 online until at least 2006. So, good news for you 737-200 lovers. Does anyone know about how old those planes are?
