Delta Boeing Orders

Sun Mar 19, 2000 5:47 am

How many planes/types does Delta currently have on order, and when is their scheduled delivery? I am most interested in the 777's. Also, why does Delta not fly 747's? Have they ever? Thanks in advance for your responses.

I would suggest you check out www.boeing.com/commercial/orders/index.html. Click on the custom page, and it should be pretty self-explanatory. As for deliveries, Delta will be receiving aircraft for most of the next couple years. However, no more 777s are scheduled to be delivered for at least the next year.

Delta operated 5 747-132's during the 1970's. Delta disposed these planes because they were goo large. Delta still does not operate these planes (747's) for that same reason today. I doubt Delta will use 747's in the near future, as the very-long range routes will probably be flown with the 777-NG.

For the 777's, Delta has 9 (??) still on firm order. They might have signed a letter of intent (LOI) for more though. They should all (the original 13) be delievered by the end of 2004, although I am not sure.
