Here are a couple of recent photos of N315DL. If this airplane was repainted as a mainline aircraft (out of DL Express colors), why would it have been repainted in Delta's OLD livery? Or did they simply paint "Air Lines" over "Express"?

Furthermore, what routes will these a/c operate?

My guess is that the just painted over to save $$$ since the Airlines are in such financial trouble.  Smile

Why waste an extra 'X' amount of money when it doesn't affect the way the airpine operates. NO increase in safetly or ontime percentage.

They just repainted Air Lines over Express. Saves time and money.
