Some time ago, Delta (and American) announced that they were removing 767's from the Boston schedule. Subsequently, Delta announced that they would be redeploying their 767-300s to international routes and retiring their 767-200's. However, I was booking a flight to Atlanta for later this year and I can see that a B767 is still on the being used. Even when I checked as far out as August, the plane is still on the route.
Does anyone know if Delta has changed it's plans for this bird? I was really sorry to learn that we were going to lose domestic 767's in Boston.

Delta is only transferring the 763ER fleet that was dedicated to domestic ops as well as 8 of the 764ERs. DL still has a large fleet of non-ER 763s that will remain in the system until they are retired.
Therefore, if you're seeing a 763 in BOS it's either a non-ER version or an ER version doing a quick turnaround between int'l ops.
