Correct me if I'm mistaken, but none of Delta's 767-200's are ER models. I believe all of Delta's transatlantic 767 flying is done by the -300ER model. The -200 is strictly for domestic flying. If you want a -200ER, I believe you'll have to fly CO. And I believe that DL's -200's are among the oldest in the -200 fleet.

Delta's 767-200 are among the first (in fact, one of them I believe is the first) to roll off the Renton assembly line. No, none of them are -ER models and they do not operate on transatlantic flights.
Continental's 767-200's are much newer. They were delivered in 2000 up until 2001 (all 10 models). They have 777 style cabin architecture on the inside and upgraded avionics. They fly mainly from Newark to Europe and South America, as well as from Houston to Sao Paolo. The routes are:

I would expect to see the 767s, all series, in service at the very least until the 7E7 arrives, and then possibly a gradual retirement of their 767 fleet as they transition to the 7E7. Depending on how they continue to perform as the years and hours build up, we may see them for many years to come.

Futureualpilot, my sentiments exactly. The 767-200, both the non-ER and ER models, will begin to be disposed of upon arrival of the 7E7. UAL has already retired a number of their 762s, some of the oldest 762s in the world. If I am correct, UAL's 767-200s are all non-ER models as well, right?

Sushka - Let me correct myself.
The first three 762's were UA. The fifth plane was DL's, and flew on 2/19/82. However, DL was the first to use GE engines, so they were the launch customer for the Boeing/GE variation. I believe Ethopian Airlines, of all airlines, was the first to get the 762ER, in 5/84. JL placed the first order for the 763 in 1983. AA was the launch customer for the 763ER.

Thanks for telling me UA does operate 762ER's? I figured some had to be ER's because they were seen at Frankfurt and London-Heathrow frequently in the early 1990s. By the way, AA operates only 762ERs now. Their eight 767-200 non-ER models are all in storage for the time being. AA 762ERs N312AA through N339AA, and N301AA through N308AA are non-ER models.

Delta did have a hub in Europe at one point in the 1990s at Frankfurt. Not sure about the routes on which the 762's were used, but I found a few shots of 727s among the 777s, 763s, MD11s, L1011s, and A310s from Pan Am that Delta either formerly or currently uses for FRA routes. 762s could have been operated from here, as it is one of the major hub airports in Europe next to LHR, CDG.
