DL is too scared to fly the 747, they don't think that they can make as much money off of them as with the 777. It's a dum idea, there is enough demand in many of DL's domestic and int'l markets to profitably operate a 747. They offer flights between cities with 2 a/c within 15mins of each other routinely.

Tri-Jets could make a return if they can perform and be more profitable than what is flying now. You never know what will happen. In my opinion Boeing or Airbus will come out with another one down the road.
