I am boarding a Delta 763ER to Europe this week and I would like to know what are the chances that I will board a jet with the older scheme. I would like to fly in the intermediate colors or heck, even the new colors. Can you guys help me out?


Twinjets...if one fails, work the other one twice as hard!!!

Your chances of getting an a/c painted in either the '97 color scheme or the new one are approximately 96.9%.

I was at ATL in April, and most of the aircraft I saw were in the '97 or '00 colours. Of course for all three legs of my trip, I was in the old-old colours...

I believe that most of the DL 763s used for transatlantic service are in the 97 or 00 colors at this point - a suprising amount were painted in the 97 colors.

I flew back from FCO on a newly painted 767 in Jan. It was cool to stand in the terminal at FCO and see 2 Delta 767's in the new colors (one to JFK, one to FCO)

on a related note, I am flying on a regular 763 (not ER, and within the US, DFW-JAX) on June 16. What are my chances of getting one of the newer paint schemes? I think the old old one is ugly.

Not a joke. Delta has 65 Business Elite equipped 767-300ERs. 63 of them are painted in either the '97 or '00 colors.

Do the math and you'll find that it's approximately a 96.9 percent chance that you will ride on one of those birds.
