Delta's Fleet

Thu Oct 21, 2004 10:53 am

I apologize if this has been discussed already, I tired to search for information but did not find any.

What are the plans for Delta's fleet? Will the 737-200s, 737-300s be retired? Are all of the planes going to get the new leather seats? Will there be any IFE adjustments? Thank you in advance. - Scott

Over the next 4 years, the 732's, 733's and 73G's will be retired. Most likely the 762's will start to be retired as well. With so many 732's, expect them to probably be the last to go.

The first planes to get the new interiors are the ones that affect the most customers. 763's, 757's, and MD88's will be the first ones. Only after those are finished will the interiors possibly move to other aircraft.

As far as IFE, I don't remember anything being said about it. Don't expect personal IFE anytime soon, too costly.

Their relatively new and large fleet of 73Gs will be retired?????????? I THINK NOT!

Caution wake turbulence, you are following a heavy jet.

No 727Lover, the rather new and large fleet of 737's you are referring to are 738's, thank you. I am talking about the 737-300 New Generation models that were acquired from Germania Airlines. There are only a few of them around and they are basic -300 models with a glass cockpit.

And the MD-90's are staying, by the way.
