Browsing around the Boeing Orders and deliveries Website, it looks like DL received a 737-800 during April. Can anyone confirm this? I'd be surprised if DL is getting new a/c considering their current financial situation.

This is from DL's website:

"B–737–800: Orders: 61*, Options: 60, Rolling options: 168. *Includes 11 B–737–800 aircraft which Delta has agreed to sell to a third party immediately after those aircraft are delivered to Delta by the manufacturer in 2005"

Who that 3rd party is, I don't know. But that may be what is happening.

Quoting Moose1226 (Thread starter):

One important thing to remember is that orders are often placed in a time when a company's economics are positive. When a downturn occurs, sometimes a manufacturer will allow an airline to defer an order or switch production slots with another carrier, but sometimes they won't. i would imagine Delta tried to defer the order, but ultimately couldn't and had to take delivery.

Our next delivery isn't until July 06. It is a single -800. In Aug we get another, then two a month until Jan 07. From Jan 07 on we get three a month. Of course this could change.
