We have maintenance facilities located in multiple locations to better serve you:
Salt Lake City
All facilities offer light maintenance for both narrowbody and widebody aircraft, and our Atlanta Technical Operations Center offers much more.
Our Atlanta facility covers nearly 2.7 million square feet and was specifically designed to provide a smooth flow of work and materiel. Aircraft work is done in one area, engine work in another, components in yet another—all tied together by an efficient, reliable multi-vehicle transportation system capable of delivering materiel and parts quickly.
TOC-1, our smaller hangar, can accommodate up to two widebody aircraft and four narrowbody aircraft simultaneously.
TOC-2, our larger hangar, is one of the world's largest cantilevered buildings. Its shed-like design can accommodate six widebodies and six or more smaller aircraft simultaneously.
TOC-3 provides four floors of shops and warehouses and three state-of-the-art paint hangar bays.

Now for the question.
Did DL re-lease the old WA hangar in LA? The web site use to say BOS,CVG,SLC and ATL but they have added LAX back so did DL take it back or what?
BTW I know they have be leasing it at needed on a day by day and they moved all of the stuff from the hangar up to SLC but why is it back is it back on the TOC web site?
(Also note they use to show the ORD hangar but I belive it is now used for NWA cargo) http://www.delta.com/business_progra..._delta_techops/locations/index.jsp

Quoting LAXintl (Reply 1): No -- Delta can (along with others including Virgin America) make use of the hangar on a per-use fee basis from LAWA.
That being said, it seems like every time I'm being dropped off at LAX on my way out of SoCal (admitedly, almost universally, CO's 634 LAX-CLE redeye, frequently on Sundays which could explain the quantity) Delta has an impressive array of equipment sitting out in the open, with some great views from the approach to the CTA.
I've wondered if DL is doing maintainance or if they're just parked to RON.
