I tried searching for this but didn't want to sift through 5000 posts, does DL have a new Spirit of Delta? Last I knew it was the 762 that is now in the museum. I have not seen a new paint scheme devoted to it like on the 762 either. IMHO, they oughta take one of the original DL DC-9s (if they have any) and paint it in the original scheme it was delivered in and name it the Spirit of Delta.

No better choice than N701DN, a 777-200LR.

Quoting C5LOAD (Thread starter):

The 'Spirit of Delta' moniker should only be applied to planes that their employees purchased for the airline. 'Delta Spirit' is okay to slap on something, but the 'Spirit of Delta' has actual meaning that shouldn't be taken for granted.

(I'm still kicking myself for not realizing I could have ridden on it just a couple of months before it was retired, if I'd taken DL up on a routing change offered at check-in at LGA.)

As posted above, this moniker was used to recognize what a lot of determined individuals could do to support the company they loved. Actually, this degree of employee "spirit" was why I gave Delta virtually all of my business over the next 20 years or so. I still believe that it still exists and maybe will be reborn in a similar undertaking.

Now if they can just get all the Northwest folks on board!
