Let me get this straight.... you guys are now saying that this is "official" because, of all things, justplanes.com says so. Oh, I can't help but laugh hysterically. Only an airliners.net user would consider that to be a valid source of information.
As for 757s, I suppose it's probable, and some people seem to have convinced themselves that it is a viable idea, but as I've said before, nobody seems to have stopped to think about the fact that whatever savings Delta is able to obtain thanks to the 757's efficiency could very well be absolutely obliterated by the amount of money that Delta pilots are contractually entitled to for the 757. Am I saying it won't happen? No. I suppose it will, but Delta's LCC strategy faces much bigger challenges than anybody around here seems to be aware of. It's not simply a matter of taking 22 First Class seats out of a 757 and suddenly you're going head to head with jetBlue.
Only time will tell, but you guys are jumping to conclusions. And I don't care what you heard, from whom, I won't believe anything until somebody within Delta *who is actually working on the project* tells me something, or until John Selvaggio makes his announcement.
It's a new day. Every moment matters. Now, more than ever.
