According to Planespotters, one of Delta's ETOPS 767-300s (N140LL) has been WFU. I find this hard to believe, considering that it is one of Delta's ETOPS domestic 763s, as well as the fact that DL has stated they will be bringing all stored domestic 763s back into service.
Can anyone confirm?

Something isn't right with this bird.
It shows for sale on Boeing.com by some leasing company but Delta owns this plane(and the 3 other 332s with the big PWs)......or they have dumped her in the last year or so(and i haven't seen anything in any SEC reports about selling 332s only buying 10 of the GE birds)
Quoting N901WA (Reply 10): I think deltal1011man is refering to the boeing cust. number 767-332. We called them by the boeing number because Delta has so many types of 767's You should see the engine list

From what understand and remember. That Pratt made Delta a Deal to supply the Full FADAC 4000 for the 767-332ER that were ordered. Then when Delta went back to take some of the options that didn't have engine set. GE offered a better price on the full FADAC CF-6-60-C2. I guess with the MD-11 going Pratt and a large Pratt fleet, that GE wanted in. I kinda thought GECAS help with that second batch, but I could be wrong ( I can't believe im getting that old ) As a side note I just drove by 1401 at the Gate

Isn't it a lot more costly to ETOPS a CF6-80A since it was designed before ETOPS came about? You don't see many ETOPS birds equipped with that engine, and none of DL's are. The only two I can think of are the two ex-DL 763As that are with Ryan Int'l now.
