I've been watching the China Eastern MD-90s coming over to the United States. When they come over they are still Chinese registered so I assume they change the registration over here but that means the Delta pilots cannot fly them. Who are doing the ferry flights? Are they using foreign crews or are the Chinese MD-90 pilots bringing them over?

The ferry flights are complete - all aircraft are now located in the US. Since they were flown under China Eastern flight numbers and not their registration numbers or another third party, it would be a safe assumption that they were China Eastern filght crews. If anyone has any further specifics, I will defer to them.

They don't need ferry tanks and that is the routing that they have been using though I think Saipan is used instead of Guam. If the aircraft is still Chinese registered then an American crew cannot fly it unless they are certified by the Chinese authorities and receive a Chinese license.
