I'm not sure if this was the bird I saw a little while ago at gate D6, as I was too far away to get the ship number, but man, I haven't seen a cheatline 762 in some time down here. How many 762's are left in this color scheme? It really looks good on the aircraft I think. Oddly enough it was parked next to a 738 in the Leo scheme as well. I felt like I was in 1998 again. Blast from the past, gotta love it!

I think there must be quite a few 763s in that color, but I too haven't seen 762s often in it...infact...Not for a couple years! Just a coincidence I'm sure! Does anyone know how many DL planes in general are in those colors still? Its gotta be at least 40?

I'm pretty sure that N109DL and N110DL are the only 767-200s left in the Leo colours, they were also the only 2 that ever wore that paint scheme.

Their livery or I should say liveries have caused such a waste of money!

Small point but I believe the cheatline livery was born during Ron Allen's time. The current 'wavy-gravy' or 'Delta-flot' colors are from Leo's tenure...

Panamair is correct. The livery in question was born during Ron Allen's tenure. Leo switched it to bring a "breath of fresh air" to Delta.
