Yesterday, while I was waiting in line in the blazing hot sun in 90 degree weather at Great America (theme park)here in San Jose, CA, I looked up and there was a DL 722 in the old colors taking off. I have not seen one of these in a long time, and I was wondering just how rare are they becoming now, especially in the old colors. When will DL, AA, UA, and NW be getting rid of their 722s? Is delta repainting any of the 722s in the most current colors? Thanks...

Yes, Delta is going to start fasing out their fleet of 722's. The last time I checked the delta website they said they were going to try to have then and their MD-11's gone by 2005. And yes they have painted quite a few of the 722's in the new paint scheme.
