Does anyone know where Delta will operate its 767-400's? The Atlantic?
Latin America? Domestic? Delta seems to utilize the 767-300 and the
older -200's on many more short-haul domestic flights than any other

In reference to your earlier post, I found this on the Boeing website (it looks like the -400 can serve those Atlantic routes comfortably):
The 767-400ER is designed to be the most efficient airplane in its size category, making it an ideal replacement for aging L-1011, DC-10-30 and A300 airplanes. In growing markets, it can fly more passengers on routes served by existing 767s, A300-600s and A310s. Efficient design gives the higher-capacity 767-400ER excellent range capability (approximately 6,500 statute miles or 10,426 km) to fly more than 99 percent of the routes currently being served by airplanes in this size category.
. . .
The 767-400ER will fly all U.S. domestic routes. It also will serve North Atlantic routes such as Los Angeles to London, Newark to Moscow or Chicago to Warsaw. Other potential routes include New York to Santiago, Chile; Seattle to Osaka; and Atlanta to Honolulu.

The Seattle-Osaka route (or possibly from PDX in Delta's case), is highly unlikely to be served with a 767-400ER. I still don't know if this new config will be ETOPS certified. I can see it fitting well on flights from the us mainland to hawaii or on trans-atlantic routes, but trans-pacific is another story.

You're correct that Delta flies to other international destinations with a variety of equipment, but their "International Aircraft Fleet" is defined as those aircraft equipped with Business Elite seating and that fleet is limited to 763ER, M11 and 777 aircraft.
The Delta 764 will not be equipped with Business Elite and therefore is not considered part of the International Fleet. I suppose it could fly to some of the destinations where Delta flies domestic aircraft internationally, but all of those locations can't handle that much capacity or else they would get an airplane from the international fleet.
