Delta Repaints Since September

Sat Jan 05, 2002 3:48 pm

By viewing the airliners.net photographs, it seems that there are very few aircraft recently painted into the new livery.

With the tougher financial/business climate, has Delta reduced the pace of repaints?

Two noted repaints were the first 762 N113DA and the first MD11 N813DE (funny - both "x13" aircraft!)

Also shown on the photographs was a new livery DX 732 - N331DL in storage at Goodyear, Arizona.

I would be pleased to hear from Delta people if there is a change to policy, or have the photographs been far and few between?

If anyone has details of recent (October onwards) repaints, please advise. With thanks, Peter

The other day, I saw a Delta 737-300 in the very old colors. I've seen them in all three colors. In one week, one can see all three at my local airport.

Less are getting repainted. Right now there are three paint lines going. 757 in ATL, 767 in PAE, and MD88 in I think SAT. There were to be two lines in SAT for narrow bodies. Each plane takes 5-7 days and then another rotates in.
