Does DELTA pilot union come to the agreement of flying 777. So will Delta order more 777 or order 767-400ER instead

Anybody has any official news or info ? Thanks

Cheers

ALPA's Master Executive Council has ratified it. Now it goes to the union's general membership at Delta. That will probably take about 2 months. If it is ratified I would assume that they would pick up their 777 options. Does anyone know if any DL 777s were produced and are in the desert?

According to Bill Harms, three aircraft are built and standing at Paine Field in Everett.

They were to be registered:
N862DA
N863DA
N864DA

Since I haven't seen them, I don't know if they are painted or have engines or what their specific status is. Since they weren't taken up by Delta, I was wondering if Delta can "re-buy" them, in a sense. I'm sure they want to get their paws on these aircraft, however.

I would assume that if they were built to Delta's standards then they will be scooped up pretty quickly.

Delta is still flying its original two 777's. They are being used on routes between Atlanta and Orlando, Atlanta and London, and Cincinatti and London. While they may still officially have those planes on the market, I don't think they would sell them if an agreement is that close to ratification. I think that the union will accept the new agreement, and that Delta will receive the five more they currently have on order and order some more.

It is my understanding that there are 3 777s on the ramp at Everett. The Delta designations are Ship 7003, 7004 and 7005.

I heard Mr Mullin say at a meeting that the first thing he will do once ALPA votes for the contract is to "call Boeing and arrainge delivery", so I don't think any are for sale anymore.

I am not sure on this one. On Delta's flight schedules page, they don't have them on the MCO-ATL, ATL-LGW, and LGW-CVG routes. I hope they keep them, get the 777's on the ramp in Everett (why would they be in the desert?), and order about 15-20 more, as they did in their initial order with Boeing. Their 764's are going to stay the same.
