does dl have spares a/c at JFK? It seems logical to have a spare at a hub of JFKs size.

Probably one or two rolling spares. I don't think airlines really have dedicated spares anymore. Too expensive.

we usually have 1 or 2 spare a/c in the station depending on the day of the week. That number can sometimes be higher. Yes they are rolling spares meaning that they arrive to JFK to stay as the spare for that day and more than likely leave the next day. Also some planes stay here because they are being repaired so they are not spares but dead aircraft.

The only valid opinions are those based in facts

Sometimes they fly a JFK 767 spare up to BOS to sit. I've seen it for a few days a couple of times. I think the parking fee at BOS is less.
