Delta 767-200s Still In Service

Wed Jul 14, 2004 4:35 am

Hi all,

I am curious as to which Delta 767-200s are still in service, or at the very least, how many.


I had a change of aircraft on one of my flights this summer with DL, rom a 764 to a 762. I'm actually happy about this as 762s seem to be getting rarer.

I'd like, if possible, to have the registration #s of DL 767-200s still in service. Thanks very much. Maybe I will get lucky and my flight will be on the Spirit of Delta, but, I don't have my hopes up.

I recall seeing a post from a Delta employee that All 762's are back in service. So the complete Delta roster is up and flying.

I believe that there are 14 767-232s in service with Delta. These are some of the first (and oldest) 767s also. The last 767-232 was delivered in 1984.

Sept. 11....(cringe at username), I know that Delta is still operating them, I just would like to know how many are in service.




I went on the photo search both here and at jp.net and for 2004 these were the 767s still flying:

N101DA
N102DA Spirit of Delta
N103DA
N104DA
N105DA
N107DL
N108DL
N109DL 1997 livery
N110DL 1997 livery
N111DN
N112DL
N113DA

There was one being worked on, but I don't know if it returned to service:
N115DA

So that's 12 767s photographed in service, and one more that may or may not still be flying.

Is this accurate?


If so...then....what are my chances of getting N102DA on the ATL-MCO leg on July 29?

A couple of years ago, three or four were parked at GoodYear, AZ. One of the numbers was 103. They must of gotten "recalled" back to service.

TOC=Technical Operations Center......(aka Tech Ops)

This is Delta's main Maintenance Base located in ATL.

Cheers!

All the 767-200 are flying. 101-115. The ones parked(3) were there for 4 1/2 months. One is usually in for a D check at the TOC in ATL and I saw one in GSO for the same, last month. The Spirit is around with the mid 40s scheme. You should have seen the proposal for the 767 in the old DC-7B paint for the 75th along with the 59-62' DC-8 scheme on the 757. It made the 40s scheme look like a child designed it. The spirit livery is not bad and it is better than the current "Gay Pride flag scheme" as it is known to the employees. Thank goodness their is more to this airline than paint schemes. Info: It cost the airline 2.4 million for the new livery and the new "frowning widget"!! Imagine what would have happened if Mullin would have had a inter airline contest with the winner getting a $ 10K bonus. He would have had that much more to line the golden parachute. Not to say the boost in interairline morale.

Which aircraft operates DL300 SJU to ATL? I'm scheduled to fly that bird on August 8th and it'll be my first 767 flight.

The 300 flight is scheduled to be a 757-200 . Things change. SJU is a busy run and substitutions are always possible.

Too bad we can't figure out in advance what reg# an aircraft will be on a given day. Oh well, I have a 1/13 chance of getting on ship 102. Not having high hopes. But it'd sure be neat.


Does ship 102 ever operate on the ATL-MCO segment?

Yes. ATL to MCO is a 767 run but it is usually a 300/400 and it is usually packed! I see it going to DFW more often than MCO.

I don't know if you are trying to rip the 762s...but I think thy'll be around for a while, despite their age. They are DL's flagship plane and they'll probably be here after most of the 763s are retired!

Yep, and I specifically booked a -400 because I wanted the type. I'm on a 763 for another leg of that flight. But, I'm still happy with a -200 because they aren't as common anymore.

I imagine Delta will keep its -400s longer than its -200s....agree?

I just flew a 767-200 from SLC to ATL on June 5. It was still very roomy and comfortable, although I cannot tell you the registration #. It was definitely not the "Spirit of Delta", though. I like the old paint job better on that one, too.

Hey Flairpot, on this forum you thought someone else was ripping a 767-200. I don't read that in anybodies messages. How did you come to that?? If it was my messages, please read them again. I love the 200.

To me, the -200 is the best one to fly. It is more responsive than a -300 but a little harder to roll it on. I have about 2200hrs (as a pilot) in the 767 and the 200 is my choice. My only complaint, it needs the FADEC like our -300 to make it a real winner.

My father flew the inaugural (Capt.) at DAL on the 767 along with others . Lets only hope it is around for many many years.

As a funny note. Ship 102 is known as "Christine" . The plane truly has a mind of its own. The thought behind the name is: It was used as a practice plane for the mechanics when they first rolled on the property. I doubt it but it is funny. Cheers

Today's routing for ship 102

BDL - CVG
CVG - LAS
LAS - CVG
CVG - SLC

She is definitely a special Aircraft. My wife and I went on the 75th Anniversary ATL circle flight on her 1 and a half hours at nothing more that 5000 feet except when we flew over the top of Brasstown Bald (Highest Point in GA.) Also got a Great Low Approach (Fly By) at the ATL field. Truly a special experience. I hope Delta keeps her ant the other 767-200s around al long time.
