Why No DL 764 In The Latest Livery?

Delta's latest livery has been unveiled almost two years ago. Has anyone noticed, please show me a picture if I'm wrong, that Delta has not repainted any 764 in the latest widjet livery? I know one of them has recently been painted in the Sky Team livery. All other aircraft types at Delta that are still in service today have had the latest livery applied. Delta plans to keep flying the 767-400 for a long time to come, don't they? I wonder if we will ever see a 764 in the current livery.

Perhaps it was in the works and they got sidetracked with having to start painting the NW planes.

Actually, one 764ER, ship 1804 (or N828MH) has been repainted in the new "Onward and Upward" livery; this is also the same aircraft that is the first to be refitted with full-flat BusinessElite seats. After much delay, ship 1804 finally went back into service yesterday on a domestic trip (ATL-SLC) and is scheduled to go down to Lima today from ATL.

They probably haven't been far enough into the cycle of maintenance checks to make their way to the paint shop yet.

The only DL Connection Aircraft type that does not have the new colours is still the CRJ-700's! I keep hoping that we will see an EV (ASA) to be the first. The CR2/1's, ERJ's, E-175's, Saab 340's, CR9's, all have some painted but still no CR7's!!!

has to do with how new the 738s are. Most don't need paint. The one that got paint is for the same reason this 764 did. PR.

I didn't get to sit in the new seats but on my last trip to TechOps I went inside her(and the 7107....brand new) and the seats look like it would be a pain to lay on your back but ok if you can sleep on your side. Should be fun to see if they keep them or go with something a little bit wider.



yep.

You know....DL's new livery has really grown on me. It's dignified and tasteful. It looks great on that 764 and the 777 as well. I just hope they don't change it in two years, which seems to be the current shelf life of a DL livery lately!

Some of the 738 could really use a spray. As a side note I worked on a 757 with the new paint job last night. Somebody did a poor job of masking that off. The underside of the wing inboard of the pylon had a lot of blue overspray.

worth mentioning is that this must also be the first 764 ever built!

Agree here too. I have seen some bad paint that hasnt been fixed yet. Hell some of the new painted DAL-N aircraft are in need of new paint.

Ron Allen's been dead for a while. The last CRJ with it went away a few months back. No mainline aircraft have worn it for probably a year.

Bit of an exaggeration, don't you think? Ron Allen livery went into effect in '97 after 30+ years of the best livery. After that, Wavy Gravy in 2000 and the current one in 2007. Hardly a "2 year shelf life".

Why does no one ever complain about UA's liveries like they do DL's? I can think of about 5 UA liveries from the early 70's til now.

I think it's about time that AA changes their livery, even just a little bit.

No... it's DL's fourth aircraft, ln 791. The first three Delta 764s (ln 758, 769, 773) were built before this one. (All four were built before the first Continental 764, though.)

You're comparing 5 over 40 years vs 4 over 10?

But it's not 4 over 10 years. The first change from the 70's on was in 1997....then 2000 and then 2007. That's three over a 38 year span (I'm using '71 as my base year...the year I started with DL) if you want to compare the same time span as UA's changes. UA changed at least once, that I can remember, in the 70's, but I don't recall the other years they changed.

HUH?

Iwas counting liveries, but if I were to count CHANGES, that' 3 in a 10 year span.

UA had a complete livery change in the mid-70s ('74, I think), 1993ish and 2005(?).
That's 3 CHANGES in about 35 years

Why UA was brought up, I don't know.  confused

Thanks for the post! Looks awesome!

On a side note, I really don't understand why people love to get hung up about DL's liveries. As pointed out, two of the three were during regime changes (uh) and the last was pretty obvious as they emerged from bankrupcy and we all knew a new livery would have been coming out.

After seeing pictures of some of them, they could indeed use a re-spray..

It (ship 1804) went back into service this past Sunday (May 17) on a domestic run and then down to Lima, Peru. Just yesterday (May 20), it flew its first transatlantic as DL003 JFK-LHR, and will do LHR-DTW-LHR on May 21.
