Mon Nov 30, 1998 11:47 pm

Are there really any rumors/news of Delta looking at buying the
747? I think I saw that as a comment on a previous post ...
I've flown on 9V-SPK.

Delta is buying the 777 (200 IGW & 300) to serve their long range needs.

The 747-400 would perfectly fit into Delta's new Boeing fleet because it offers more seats than any other aircraft, and would be highly profitable to fly on the new far east routes that Delta has been awarded.
