Status Of Delta 757 Fleet

It seems like the combined Delta/Northwest fleet has about five or six 757 versions. Are there plans to simplify this, such as by installing PTVs on all of them? Could somebody provide a breakdown of the current 757 fleet?

I'm pretty sure I read all would be getting DL seats with AVOD, I'm wondering if they will simplify the configuration so most of them are like DL's Transcon configuration (or something like that)

75N: 757-251 (5500 series) - approx 22 in the fleet (give or take a few in storage), all currently in NW colors, 22F/160Y configuration. Initially planned to be retired, now it seems DL plans on keep all (or most) of them.

75N: 757-251 (5600 series) - 7 in the fleet, all in DL colors. Seen mostly on domestic use though interchangeable with international fleets, especially 75J. All Aircraft EOW-90 capable. All to receive AVOD and winglets.

75J: 757-251 (5600 series) - 7 in the fleet, all in DL colors, 20J/162Y configuration.. All aircraft ETOPS-180 capable. All to receive AVOD and winglets.

75A: 757-251 (5600 series) - 8 in the fleet, all in DL colors, 16J/144Y configuration. All aircraft ETOPS-180 capable. All to receive AVOD and winglets.

757: 757-232 - approx 60 in the fleet, 24F/159Y configuration. All (or most) to be converted to have AVOD and winglets. None ETOPS capable.

757: 757-26D - Only 1 in the fleet, 24F/159Y configuration. To receive AVOD and winglets. Not ETOPS capable.

75X: 757-232 - approx 50 in the fleet, 26F/158Y configuration. All have AVOD, all to receive winglets. None ETOPS capable.

75V: 757-212 - Only 4 in the fleet, 22F/156Y configuration. All aircraft ETOPS-180 capable. None have AVOD or winglets. Used almost exclusively to Hawaii + a few domestic flights.

75E: 757-231 - 8 in the fleet, all in DL colors, 16J/158Y configuration. All aircraft ETOPS-180 capable, all aircraft have AVOD and winglets.

75E: 757-2Q8 - 9 in the fleet, all in DL colors, 16J/158Y configuration. All aircraft ETOPS-180 capable, all aircraft have AVOD and winglets.

753: 757-351 (5800 series) - 16 in the fleet, all in DL colors, 24F/200Y configuration. All aircraft ETOPS-180 capable, all aircraft to receive AVOD. Not sure on the status of winglets.

It is very likely in the future they will consolidate some of these fleet types when they decide to reconfigure the NW a/c and install AVOD/IFE. There is currently no timeline yet for refurbishment.

75N (5500s): These are the 5500 series aircraft that were originally going to be removed from the fleet. They are supposed to be repainted now with some going in supposedly in April/May and the remainder in the fall. Supposed to get new seat covers, new lighting, new carpet, and new overhead bins. Not going to get AVOD. These older 757's will primarily serve leisure routes to/from DTW,MSP,ATL to Florida, LAS, PHX. No longer going to be flying routes like DTW/MSP-LAX/SEA.

75J/75A/75N(5600) - likely to all be reconfigured into the same configuration when they get new seats w/ AVOD

757 - these are all of the PMDL non-ETOPs 757s in 24/158 configuration

75V - the ex-ATA 757s used to Hawaii

75E - the ex-TWA 757's used for transcons and ETOPS

753 - the 757-300, likely to be used more for domestic service than Hawaii routes

Many of the old NW 5600 series had already been converted to winglets for trans-Atlantic flying. Some are used for interport flying out of NRT and NGO.

Are these now 75N? They were 756.

So when the conversions on the 75N (5600) and older PMDL 757 birds are complete, will they all have the same seats and seating configuration? That would seem to help with the profusion of configurations.

In a blue-sky world it also seems like it would be good to convert the 75A/75J frames (ETOPS) into additional 75E, but since the 75A are in nice shape I guess that must be a low priority.

Nope, the regular (non-AVOD) PMDL 752s still have the CRT monitors.

Good question. I've been monitoring Greenville (GLH) and I even went back tonight and couldn't find anything on the log with a Delta 757 either arriving or departing. Most of the domestic 757-5600 painting was done at GLH.

Maybe DL did it in Atlanta. I also didn't see any Delta 757 out of Roswell or Victorville the past 10-12 days. I could have missed it...

There have been no 757 movements through GLH or VCV this month. VCV is doing a 763 a week and GLH is doing CRJs and MD88s. 5521 was absent from ACARS from 3/14-3/29 so it could have been painted. The only possible location would have had to been TOC in ATL. Also of note is 5521 was flying around with a partially blue engine at the beginning of the month.

Thanks for such a comprehensive list Transpac787! It's really informative. I was surprised the Hawaii 757s don't have IFE & AVOD. I thought they did.

I was at work the other night and was watching delta's 757's come in. Anyway every time they engage their thrust reverser's theirs a distinctive sound at the end. What series is it or what engines are delta's 757 equipped with? united airlines has the same sound coming from their engines every time they engage their thrust reverser's as well.

Yeah they are still some with the CRT monitors in the fleet. They are the 757-200 with 24F/159Y, and typically operate on the east coast routes where there wouldn't be enough time to watch an entire movie. Although they are occasionally seen as an equipment sub on the transcon flight for various reasons.

I just flew on a DL 757 on JFK-MBJ and I was surprised that it still had the CRT monitors. Are their international 757s any different in configuration than their transcon/other domestic a/c? Or are they interchangeable?

I just flew on a 757-232 with the old CRT monitos from ATL-BOS. The monitors were in awful shape, they were so blurry you could hardly even see the TV show. I actually heard a few passengers making a joke about it. It is time to update those birds, Delta. I think I will stick to my brand new 737 or almost new 717 on Airtran with XM next time.

Since they are putting AVOD on like 90%+ of the 757 fleet, doesn't it make sense to put it on all of them? Or will these birds be retired sooner rather than later?

My understanding is they are suppose to get new seats, not just seat covers. The interiors are in pretty bad shape. Also, DL is referring to these birds as "high-density" 757s. Not sure if that means they will remove some F seats since the aircraft will be flying more leisure destinations.

Now and then this plane shows up on MSP-ANC, ugh.

83 The777Man : No, don't take pics; only for trip reports or of 777s for my website. I'm registraions spotter collecting registrations. The777Man
84 timf : It looks like a 5500 got sent to storage today. It flew DL9898 MSP-PHX then DL9944 PHX-MZJ. If anyone can get the tail number it would be appreciated.
85 n7371f : Are we sure it's a ex-NW 5500? Could be a Delta 752 unless you have access to Deltanet. I don't right now.
86 timf : The MSP-PHX leg was flown as an extra revenue flight (although it was only half full in F and empty in Y), so a seat map was available. The seat map m
87 TristarCrazy : It came out of the paint shop Tues, and yea, as of today, there isn't a 5500 in paint. I saw 5518 at Conc E ATL today, thought it might go over to th
88 aviationbuff08 : I have also seen them operate LAX-HNL-LAX before returning to JFK. Your not the only one waiting on this. Last count I knew there was 7 of them in st
89 n7371f : A couple of updates... First, Richard Anderson told pilots the other day that the expectation going forward is all of the 75's and 76's parked will b
90 aviationbuff08 : I am certainly not in revenue management but I can't see why the 763A's wouldn't work on flight from ATL-SEA/SFO/SLC/LAX/SAN/PHX
91 Post contains images deltal1011man : MCO,TPA,FLL,JAX,LAS,DEN,LGA,BOS,MSP,DTW,JFK. Ok I'm done
92 N747PA : The Y seats from those planes are now in 1607-1613.
93 EMB170 : Yes. I recently flew on one domestically and "The Young Victoria" was shown.
94 Post contains images EMB170 : I recently flew an A319...that poor bird was in sad shape, except for the new seats. I hope that DL gives the Airbus narrowbodies the new whitish int
95 TristarCrazy : Most of the non-ER 767s are leased and a couple of those stored ship were returned to lessor. Some went to Ryan Air..122,123?? and did not have AVOD.
96 Tommy767 : Yeah I flew LAX-MEM recently and while the seats were comfortable, the interiors were older. UA has much nicer A320s. EDIT: now granted if DL just ca
97 akelley728 : How many of these have been converted and what is the timeline for getting the rest done? Will they be converted to the '75X' layout or will they rem
98 The777Man : N501US is in Delta colors now as well; noticed at LAX 24Apr10. The777Man
99 MadDogJT8D : Just got a hit on N664DN operating DL9994 from SAT-ATL. I am assuming this bird is coming back from winglet mod, can anyone confirm if this was wingle
100 deltal1011man : I am going to say none of the above. IIRC 664 was getting a HMV (I believe she just got pulled from MZJ)
101 n7371f : I think the first response is correct - 664 had its HMV in SAT after being removed from storage. It's my understanding that ATL and Kelowna, BC are t
102 HAWK21M : Shouldn't the B757s get converted.They make great Freighters too.
103 redtailsforever : Even the most tired 5500 series, isn't as bad as alot of the American 757s
104 Post contains images aviationbuff08 : If I was in LAS, I''d be " all in" for a heavy check and some new winglets. I guess we are all going to have to wait until someone gets a picture of i
105 Post contains images deltal1011man : could that they are doing winglets as they get HMVs. Would be nice if thye were doing PTV/DoD mods along with that
106 n7371f : N663DN and N666DN (nice number, huh) both have winglets. Looking at them outside the Concourse A SC in ATL.
107 FlyAA757 : Anyway to tell if a NW 757 is operating a flight vs a DL a/c out of ATL?
108 alwaysontherun : How much does it cost to add winglets? I guess subsequently my REAL question is: How long are they keeping their 757´s? Is there any retirement plan
109 7673mech : Based on what assesment? Sitting in them?
110 redtailsforever : I've flown American eight times, and each time on a 757. I've also flown on a Northwest 757 late eighties-mid ninties. The American 75's interiors we
111 DocLightning : The 757 interiors on NW at the time of the merger were basically unchanged from the '90s. There was no IFE to speak of, not even overhead CRT's, not
112 akelley728 : Does anyone know the timeframe for the non-winglet, non-AVOD PMDL 757s to get their mods done?
113 n7371f : I don't know. Begs the same question of many DL 757's that never went over to Song. I've been on numerous DL 757's that haven't seen the galleys re-w
114 1337Delta764 : I assume it is only on HMVs. All of my recent 752 flights have the new PSUs. However, keep in mind that the newer PMDL 752s (most of which are ex-Son
115 KLASM83 : If Delta does not mind springing for it, I certainly wouldn't mind the curved 737NG like ceiling panels on these airplanes, just like their ex Song b
116 1337Delta764 : I'm guessing the reason why the curved ceiling panels were not installed on the standard domestic 752s was because DL didn't want to remove the overh
117 SYfan100 : One thing to keep in mind as well that some of the 757's might be getting ready to be retired as well. Some of the very older Northwest 757s have been
118 n7371f : If you're basing your information of MSP Spotters, that info is wrong. That site lists roughly 10 755's due for retirement this year and after talkin
119 michman : Not really true. 757-300's have flip down LCD screens. And the 75A's and 75J's (which have been making a number of domestic appearances - I've been o
120 akelley728 : How many 5500 series have been painted in DL colors?
121 TOMMY767 : Little Chart for all of you confused about the configurations. Make any changes as needed: NW 5600: Have either CRTs or LCDs in the isles, new DL seat
122 PSU.DTW.SCE : This includes three different configurations - 75A, 75J, and the 757 domestic They are still in old NW seat covers, haven't been recovered yet. They
123 Post contains images tristarcrazy : Saw 5520 in NWA colors at ATL Con T. Scheduled to fly DL1085 to MSP/ANC. Cool to see the red tail among widgets at Concourse T. Sorry the pic not bet
124 JohnJ : And I saw 5516 at Atlanta on May 4 departing Runway 9L, not sure where it was headed.
125 n7371f : I haven't been able to get a confirmation from inside Delta...does anyone know if the 757-300 fleet has been approved by the FAA for wi-fi and, if so,
126 slcpdxatl : As of April 20: 8 of the 16 757-300's have wi-fi, 48 out of 49 A319's have it, and 55 out of 69 A320's have it, and 1 out of 34 DC9-50.
127 DeltaRules : I saw another 5500 series 757 at ATL in the NW colors in early May...N512NW, maybe?
