And perhaps because the internal secter is very popular and it warents a B777 ?
|Quoting Wrighbrothers (Reply 14):|
Is it because ( I ASUME ) you ment that the 764 carries more passengers ?
|Quoting MD90fan (Reply 21):|
I thought DL got the 767-400ER for those routes as they have a higher capacity(seat more people than 777-200ER)
|Quoting DAL767400ER (Reply 24):|
No. Delta got the 764 as a replacement for their L-1011s, hence the domestic high-density layout at 287 seats. A 772 in a domestic layout with First instead of BizE and an enlarged Eco cabin would seat around 342 pax (proposing a F49Y293 layout), which would be too large for the markets they serve, at 55 seats more. Plus, the 764 can land at LGA (another former L-1011 market), which the 777 can't due to both weight and wingspan.

My question though: why such a sweet, long distance plane for a 400 mi. hop?
|Quoting HighFlyer9790 (Reply 30):|
Well, also consider re-positiong??? Also, its good that they are not idling...speaking of which, how many T7s does delta have now? I dont see too many of them.
Bring a camera for that landing config!!

Any idea if there are currently any plans to take delivery of the remaining ones on order, DAL767400ER (or anyone else, for that matter)?
