(ex-Gulf Air) Delta 767-300 Scheduling

Mon Feb 06, 2006 7:34 am

Good evening,
My first new topic on a.net for a while  Smile.

I noticed that Delta is sending its six ex-Gulf Air B767-300ER aircraft to Dublin, Manchester and Shannon all the time recently. I was wondering whether anyone of the lots of DL workers here has any idea why these specific aircraft end up on these routes so often? Any specific configuration?

I don't remember seeing the exact same aircraft in Shannon so often when I still lived there two years ago and from looking at recent registration logs I get from local spotters at these airports, there seem to be a lot of movements with these six aircraft.

Thanks
Thomas

I suppose its just the way the schedules worked. My last 4 trips to Spain have been on -3P6ER aircraft. Pretty nice if you get the "bulkhead" seats in right behind the second set of doors in economy.
Twinjets...if one fails, work the other one twice as hard!!!

Aren't those destinations that Delta intends on using their 767-400ERs internationally?
