Re: Did DL's order for the A-220 signal the end of the 717?

I though DC9-30s were repainted in DL colors The DC9-50s flew long enough for some repainting. The 30s and 40s were parked too quickly I think. However, airfleets.net doesn't include the DC9s under Delta or Northwest. https://www.usatoday.com/story/todayinthesky/2014/01/07/delta-final-dc-9-flight/4...

That would be a lot of premium capacity for EWR-SFO/LAX but I think the configuration wouldn't be dense enough for any transatlantic purposes either.

PS 757s are not being retired anytime soon.
