Well the interiors on most of them have been converted to DL blue leather and carpet. most of the A333s are painted so i dunno what they are waiting for on the A332s.


All flights have great IFE...get yourself a window seat, thats something no PTV can beat! flew 808 Pacific an Atlanic

I believe the A332 fleet is tied up as far as utilization; therefore, the only chance one would go in for painting is during a heavy C or D check. Does NW have more 332's on order?

There will be freed A332s fairly soon. The current schedule keeps them busy but keep in mind the following schedule changes occurring very soon:

SLC-NRT 5x to 0
BKK-NRT A332 to 75A (returning to 332 later this fall)
AMS-MSP A332 to A333
LHR-MSP A332 to 76D
AMS-MEM A332 to A333

AMS-BOM 76L to A332
AMS-ATL A333 to A332

I imagine the first will go to the paint shop in a couple weeks!

In April I flew AMS -- MEM. I saw a mix of NW and DL colors. I am thinking that some of the A330s where re-paints. I think this as I saw winglits on most of the planes, and as I recall, 767s don't have winglits.

I was thinking the same thing but wanted confirmation first. Thank you very much.

I'll be happy to see a 332 in DL colors. Any idea where they will go to get painted?

I don't have the exact #'s, but I believe there are 5-7 A330-300's painted in DL colors.
None of the A330-200's have been painted yet, however 1-2 have had the DL leather seat covers installed.

They were able to paint a few A330-300's last spring before the busy summer schedule when utilization increased to the point where they couldn't pull any offline to paint.

The 332's have been heavily utilized and are almost exclusively doing Asia turns, and have not been cross-utilized over to DL routes. They will be repainted starting this fall when utilization decreases.

That said, don't look for any A332's in JFK. The A332 can't make Asia from either location. Capacity-wise they aren't all that different from the 777's. For the time being DL will continue to use them as-is from West Coast-Asia and intra-Asia.

Again, according to Widgetheads, none of the -200s have been re-painted.

If I was Delta I'd be thinking about canceling the 7LATE7 and ordering some of the latest A332 models, the one with 7200nm range, along with the PW4170A.

But for now, the answer is no.

Then was it a 333? NW 27/28 are usually a 332.

That it is...not to mention the fact that this very website doesn't appear to have any images of a 332 in DL colors. If one indeed existed, someone certainly would have found it.

I would never say never, but I don't like the chances of that happening. We are not privy to negotiatoins between Boeing and Delta.

Yes of course there is. I would say it is better then a 60% chance of that happening.

The chances are somewhat good, however there's a lot of variables that go into that such as mx,wx,etc..

Ships 185,191,192,1607-1613 have the winglet mods done. More planes will get the mod once the summer is over.(BTW 1607-1613 are all 12+ hour birds(meaning they have lie-flat pilot rests))

Once the busy summer season is over more 753s,744s,333s and 332s will get paint.

Happy your not at Delta. Why don't they go by some 767-200s to replace the 300s? It would be about the same. So because the 787 is late they should just drop the orders? Well then I guess by your logic the 350 and 380 orders are f**ked too. Seeing that Delta's 767s will be around for the next 5-7 years. I'm not sure why they need more 330s or 787s right now. The 332 can't really do anything for Delta at this point. More 777s now and 787s later are the best thing for Delta. (Just because Anderson loves the 330 doesn't mean Delta is going to go out and order 100 of them. He doesn't get to order airplanes, and would have to give the BOD a good reason to dump the 763s which still have 5-8 years of life in them plus Delta is putting in money with winglets and lie-flats in J. Also they are trying to find a PTV system for them that works.(and its likely they will have to put new Y seats in them)) I do think its funny how Delta is having to cut routes yet people on a.net think its a good idea to replace a 200 seat 763 that is paid for with a brand new 300 seat Airbus. What the hell why don't they just buy a bunch of A380s and call it a day, its only money.  Yeah sure



yep.

As of the September 1 schedule there are at least 3 spare A330-200s vs. what is required to do the scheduled routings, so I'm willing to bet they will start getting repainted then.

this brings me to a related question, has DL decided what to do with the remaining planes that aren't yet painted once the SOC is merged? Will they put some interim livery/stickers on them? Will the NWA name have to completely go away at that time?

Nothing has been announced (nor do I expect an "announcement"). Speculation is that stickers will be applied. Either a large one to cover up the NWA logo, or a small one stating that it's now operated by Delta (similar to the NWA currently on DL-painted NW aircraft).

There is no regulation that says it can't say NWA just because they don't operator any more. The regulations only state that the operator's name be on the outside of the aircraft, visible to someone standing on the ground (while the aircraft is also on the ground).

Speaking of repainting, a quick semi-related question. When are the CR7s going to start getting repainted? All I ever see at work are pretty grungy looking EV CR7s. Some are still in decent condition but the majority of them definitely need a nice new coat of paint! I just figured that since they're well underway painting the CRJs and the CR9s are all in the new colors, that the CR7s would be up to bat next, but I haven't seen a single one in the new colors yet.
