That'll be the first time in over 30 years that a 747 has carried DL colours; no doubt an aircraft that will be appearing on the front page of A.net within a few hours!

Any idea when the first A330 will appear in DL colours; that'll be a swell looking aircraft (either version!)

There is another thread about NW terminating their SEA-LHR flight. But the Star Tribune article above mentions Delta's intention to "right-size" aircraft to routes across their network.

Wouldn't transitioning SEA-LHR from a [Northwest] 330 frame to a [Delta] 767 frame, with fewer premium seats to fill, make that route feasible?

Probably to NRT from MSP, DTW, or LAX. I would not be surprised if they fly it here to ATL and a few other stations before putting back into revenue service just to show it off.

I think I know what my next a/c model purchase will be...

For those of you who cannot wait to see what it will look like, I'll let the creative folks over at MAP give the visual:

not having spent much time in the back seat of police cars I will bow to your expertise  Wink

Although I have to admit that I dont know why people think leather is so wonderful on aircraft , it always seems quite clammy to me on a lengthy sector as it does not breathe the same way that fabric does

Anyway , I look forward to seeing actual photos of the first Delta-ised 744 ( although my gut instinct tells me that they will not be staying in the fleet in the long term )

Anyone know the tail number of the 747 that is going to have the honors of being the first 744 to be repainted into Delta colors? I know N661US was the first to be repainted into the new NWA scheme.

Or maybe it will be N666US?  Wink

I had a hard time sleeping on a transatlantic flight on one of NW's A333s. The headrest would push your head forward enough that any seat recline was negated and it basically made my neck hurt and kept me awake all night. Never had a problem sleeping on DL (but haven't been in the new seats on TATL yet).

A lot of what you are seeing happening in the short term are seasona suspensions during the traditionally slow travel periods, not so much merger related activity. The economic situation currently is hitting international travel, and this winter is expected to be weaker than normal across both oceans.

Some of these routes are set to come back, likely with smaller aircraft. They just aren't at a point to do that just yet.

At the moment there are actually three.

1) 77L Full flats
2) New BizE spread across all the 767s, the 757s, and the 777ERs
3) Old BizE's found on just the 763ERs if I recall correctly, these are due to disappear over the next few months.

I've always wondered about this...what will happen to the old NW seats once they're removed? Do they just get thrown away, or does something else happen?

The NW Y seats probably won't actually be replaced, they will simply be re-covered in Delta's signature blue leather. This is exactly what Delta has done on most (but not all) of their aircraft. I assume the same will be done with the domestic F seats. As for international J class, they will probably get brand new flat-bed seats.
