I am curious as to which Delta 767-200s are still in service, or at the very least, how many.
I had a change of aircraft on one of my flights this summer with DL, rom a 764 to a 762. I'm actually happy about this as 762s seem to be getting rarer.
I'd like, if possible, to have the registration #s of DL 767-200s still in service. Thanks very much. Maybe I will get lucky and my flight will be on the Spirit of Delta, but, I don't have my hopes up.

All the 767-200 are flying. 101-115. The ones parked(3) were there for 4 1/2 months. One is usually in for a D check at the TOC in ATL and I saw one in GSO for the same, last month. The Spirit is around with the mid 40s scheme. You should have seen the proposal for the 767 in the old DC-7B paint for the 75th along with the 59-62' DC-8 scheme on the 757. It made the 40s scheme look like a child designed it. The spirit livery is not bad and it is better than the current "Gay Pride flag scheme" as it is known to the employees. Thank goodness their is more to this airline than paint schemes. Info: It cost the airline 2.4 million for the new livery and the new "frowning widget"!! Imagine what would have happened if Mullin would have had a inter airline contest with the winner getting a $ 10K bonus. He would have had that much more to line the golden parachute. Not to say the boost in interairline morale.

I don't know if you are trying to rip the 762s...but I think thy'll be around for a while, despite their age. They are DL's flagship plane and they'll probably be here after most of the 763s are retired!

I just flew a 767-200 from SLC to ATL on June 5. It was still very roomy and comfortable, although I cannot tell you the registration #. It was definitely not the "Spirit of Delta", though. I like the old paint job better on that one, too.

Hey Flairpot, on this forum you thought someone else was ripping a 767-200. I don't read that in anybodies messages. How did you come to that?? If it was my messages, please read them again. I love the 200.
To me, the -200 is the best one to fly. It is more responsive than a -300 but a little harder to roll it on. I have about 2200hrs (as a pilot) in the 767 and the 200 is my choice. My only complaint, it needs the FADEC like our -300 to make it a real winner.
My father flew the inaugural (Capt.) at DAL on the 767 along with others . Lets only hope it is around for many many years.
As a funny note. Ship 102 is known as "Christine" . The plane truly has a mind of its own. The thought behind the name is: It was used as a practice plane for the mechanics when they first rolled on the property. I doubt it but it is funny. Cheers

She is definitely a special Aircraft. My wife and I went on the 75th Anniversary ATL circle flight on her 1 and a half hours at nothing more that 5000 feet except when we flew over the top of Brasstown Bald (Highest Point in GA.) Also got a Great Low Approach (Fly By) at the ATL field. Truly a special experience. I hope Delta keeps her ant the other 767-200s around al long time.
