Where have all the low gross weight (non ER) 767-300's gone for the Summer? The normal domestic routes of ATL-LAS/MCO, etc. are void of them on the Summer schedules. With these a/c not having international capability, where is Delta using them this Summer?

I didn't realize there was so few remaining! Do you have the registrations (no rush!)? Also, there used to be a weekday domestic 763 ATL-BOS (summer of 2005, if not even more recent), but I guess that's gone in favor of 757s/MD88s? Or, will they employ NW aircraft?

Domestic 763 flying wasn't directly replaced with anything... capacity/frequency was adjusted accordingly and a variety of aircraft (some in higher frequency) have replaced the flights formerly operated with 763/764. ATL/BOS looks to be mostly M88 & 757 with a couple 738.
Delta had 123 Boeing 767. Of those, 66 were originally in domestic configuration and 51 in BuinessElite configuration. The -ER (8 763ER, 21 764ER) in domestic configuration were recently converted to BusinessElite.
15 Boeing 767-200 - all retired
28 Boeing 767-300 - 8 retired, 2 stored
59 Boeing 767-300ER - 2 stored
21 Boeing 767-400ER
So sad to see... I mean, on one hand, I'm very happy SAN is getting multiple 767 frequencies, but on the other hand, I own a Summer 2004 timetable, and it seemed like every other city got a 767, at LEAST a 762.
And I NEVER thought the day would come when no Floridian airport would receive a single DL widebody. But with such a small remaining domestic 76' fleet, I guess it was inevitable.
