The last DL paint thread got archived, so I couldn't bump it to ask this.
according to mspspotters, it appears that with the expection of the DC9s and still-uncertain-future 5500 752s, the mainline repaints are all but done, Thee last 2 A320s are in the shop now, and one 753, N589NW is left after them. It seems like the rest of the 753s were done awhile ago, and obviously with only the 2 airbus left it's not like the paint hangers are full, so why has this one not gone in?

Maybe they're going to rotate it in with the original DL a/c that still need a repaint.

Perhaps the aircraft was busy. I'd think they'd repaint it only if it was free and they could take if off the line for a little bit.

I noticed that mspspotters site was updated recently to show N589NW is scheduled for repaint in April 2010.
(I know this doesn't answer the OP's question on why N589NW was scheduled much later than the other 753s).
