I havn't heard much about the status of Delta's 777's recently. Delta's 1999 Annual Report said they are ordering the 767-400 instead and are going to sell the remaining 2 777's. However, their website says they have 7 777's and that they have many more on order. So, what's up? Anyone know? Thanks

Delta's 1999 report may well have been written during the pilot's dispute, when Delta was seriously threatening to sell what was then two 777s. However, it now has a fleet of 7, as you say, and there are more on order. This aircraft will be in DL's fleet for many years to come!
