DeltaSFO- In, I believe 1990, my dad and I flew back for a company event. They put us up in the Marriot. They had the plane in the hanger, allowing everyone to view it and walk around it. Along with a mock up of the cockpit that we kids could go into and view. This was three years after the merger, and was something they were going to do every four years or so.. but they stopped it before my dad had his second time, so most everyone got to go twice and we didnt. Does that explain it to you? And I at the time thought it was delievered then, and not earlier.. so that would be my mistake... because they still seemed to make alot of "noise" basically about the plane.
