I would think that none are coming from the desert. Aren't they txfrd to DL from the line of flying?

While most of these 752s will be used for JFK-Europe, what are the chances of seeing a SLC-LAX-KOA route by sometime next year once these get up to 180 minute ETOPs?

AA bare metal - the red stripe had been painted blue to make it a little less obvious - no titles - just the reg nbr

I'll try to get some pics when I get to the airport this afternoon.

Came from AA maintenace in Ft. Worth. The first 752 flew from Ft. Worth to Lake City, FL on Monday. So DL has the first two 752's from AA in their possession. I don't know what kind of work will be done in Lake City, but DL and UA both have work done at that airport.

I still believe these 757s are JFK based. So, what sense does it make for DL to scatter them around the system for west coast flying?

aircraft at Delta are not based anywhere. Crews have bases....aircraft do not. They are used where they are needed, and may or may not go back to the same airport on a regular basis.

Your point is understood......but: the ex-TW/AA 752s that are being added to the DL fleet will be (1) ETOPS qualified unlike DL's existing 757 fleet and (2) equipped with a BizElite style premium cabin. Thus, the ex-TW/AA airplanes will be a unique subfleet at DL.

I asked a similiar question a few weeks ago.....after DL has received the 10 (or 13, depending upon who you ask) ex-TW/AA 752s, will their missions be primarily JFK-Europe with an occassional turn to ATL for maintainance visits, or will this subfleet fly a variety of missions, say a transcon or JFK-Florida turn inbetween flights to/from Europe? (I never asked about SLC-Hawaii routes.) The answer that I received from some DL experts is that, for the time being, the ex-TW/AA 752s will primarily fly JFK-Europe routes and may pay a visit to ATL every now and then.

In between intl flights I could easily see these birds making JFK - LAX/SEA/SFO turns based on having the BE configuration and IFE for business passengers, and for a competititive edge over Jetblue and the likes.

Bucky - while the majority of a/c aren't "based" at any particular airport, there are a few exceptions...the 777s come to mind, with all eight being based out of ATL at all times and only connecting through another city either on the trip, or mid-trip (ATL-JFK-BOM-JFK-ATL).

They are being acquired to help right-size some TATL markets where the 76 is too much bird but there is no other gauge to serve with. While (as happens with every airline), you may see them rotate through some outstations in between TATL flights, these birds will most likely spend the majority of their time (at least initially) rotating through JFK with the trip to ATL for work as needed...

I think that DL's advance schedules already inidicate a 752 for the JFK-SNN route.

While the airplane was seen at ATL, we really dont know if the airplane has yet to be ""officially delivered"" to Delta.....the airplanes are owned by leasing companies and there is no conifirmation that DL is in legal posession of the airplane. Just because the airplane is parked in AA does not mean it now belongs to DL.

When an airplane is damaged or sometimes when an airplane is put into ""open-storage"" in the desert, the airline will remove it titles and sometimes will slightly alter its livery. Why? Its not great public relations to have out-of-use or damaged airplanes displaying the companies colors.

There is another sub-fleet of aircraft at DL which is also based in ATL and that is 767-300ER (G), the former Gulf Air aircraft that are at the moment flying from ATL to CPH, DUB, DUS, FRA, SCL and STR. You don't see these in JFK for example.
