Any Updates On Delta's Ex-Hello MD-90s?

I was wondering, does anyone have any updates on Delta's ex-Hello MD-90s? Specifically, I would like to know when they will enter service.

I have heard these will be the first MD-90s to feature the Weber 5751 slimline seats, and will have a capacity of 160 pax. Eventually the rest of the MD-90s will get the same seats in the same configuration as well. I have also heard that DL will install both Wi-Fi and overhead video on these aircraft for consistency with the rest of the DL MD-90 fleet.

However, the Matsushita IFE system that the MD-90s currently used is no longer made. I wonder what system will DL install on the ex-Hello MD-90s. Panasonic's current overhead IFE system is known as the Digital MPES system, which is a lightweight and economical system. Of course, another alternative would be to recycle the systems that were removed from the 737-800s that got AVOD.

Seems this has escaped me - how many Hello MD90s are DL taking over? The whole fleet?

The aircraft are HB-JIA, HB-JIB, and HB-JIC. HB-JIC is an MD-90-30ER BTW. DL has reserved the registrations N917DN, N918DH, and N919DN for them.

Up to now, only HB-JIA left the FHE fleet. I recently saw a pic here on a.net showing it in Victorville (desert). JIB and JIC will leave FHE in autumn.
