Delta has 2x 767 parked in ANC right now. Any idea what they are doing here?

One is DL 9932 from ATL. Seems to be a charter. The other is DL 9931 from ATL. Also seems to be a charter.

They are probably on their way to Asia for maintenance work. Both aircraft are 767-300s (one is N198DN, I don't have the registration of the second) and arrived from ATL. For whatever reason, these repositioning flights via ANC are a lot more common than just repositioning from NRT or on the scheduled NRT-HKG flight.

Where does DL to their Maint in Asia? And why do they leave the plane overnight in ANC? Wouldn't it make more sense to fill it with cargo from ATL to Asia to help cover the huge cost of ferrying the ac empty to Asia?

Do we know it didn't have cargo in it while sitting in ANC, probably for crew rest? That being said, the flow of cargo between Asia and the US is almost all east bound. Very small demand for west bound.

DL charter numbers usually 88XX or 89XX

I've noticed that most DL charters are actually 9000 series flight numbers.

Both are headed to HKG for maintenance work (by HAECO).

Can you show me one on flightaware then? We've tracked the NFL and NCAA charters all year and I don't remember seeing a 9XXX charter number. Maybe a position to or from a charter but not the charter itself.

HAECO performs HM on the Delta 747s and 767s. I was there yesterday, and there are 4 Delta 767s at their facility.

I highly doubt that an Aircraft inbound to JFK in New York will divert to Anchorage Alaska.

I'm pretty sure 9XXX flight numbers are used as extras, or ferry/repositioning flights while the 8XXX are used for charter flights.

DL 9932 is showing an ETA into HKG of 1707 local. 9931 is due in at 1937 local.

198 is operating 9931. The other ship number is 178. I'm willing to bet they will be coming back with a Y+ cabin and new BizElite seats as well...but just a guess

I know the trade deficit is huge between the U.S. and many Asian countries, but surely it is not so great that we can't fill a couple of 767s ....

Funny that I'm reading this now, I actually know the FO operating one of the ANC-HKG flights. As stated above, both are empty heading to HAECO for heavy maintenance.

The aircraft almost certainly will have winglets fitted while there also, if past patterns prevail.

Delta 9932 a 764 just landed in ANC. Yet another delta plane headed to overhaul in china. Is this a slow time of year when they do alot of heavy maintenance on their heavies?

Both 198 and 178 are regular 763ERs and those are not scheduled for flat-bed makeovers yet. Only the 77E, 76C (767-400) and 76T (ships 1607-1613) are this winter.

Now that the holiday travel rush is mostly over you will notice that alot of US legacy airlines will have an increase of the number of aircraft in longer term MTC. Some obviously go overseas while most will stay in the domestic maintenance bases.

I believe this aircraft is going for the Business class seats install.
