You're not likely to see 777s on ATL
for the forseeable future unless all international travel collapses due to the war or other reasons. DL
only has 8 777s around and will not get any new ones until well into 2004. With the retirement of most of the MD11s, the 777s are needed for international flights and a few ATL
runs. In addition, with the planned retirement of the last 3 MD11s in early 2004, ATL
will have to be flown with the 777s (it will take up 3 of the 8 aircraft). Right now, for the summer schedule, ATL
will have a combination of 767-300ERs, 767-300s, 767-400s, and a 757 or so. Some of the 763s will be the internationally-BizElite-configured a/c (these are the ones with flight numbers between 1 and 179 or between 1960 and 1999) while others will be domestic 763s (with F and Y cabins).
