|Quoting 1337Delta764 (Thread starter):|
Delta announced plans to retire their 727s before the 1997 livery was introduced, originally intended to be replaced by the MD-90, and then the 737-800. I don't think it was worth the money to repaint the 727s.

You keep saying the MD-90 was supposed to be a 727 replacement. It was not bought with that in mind.
|Quoting 1337Delta764 (Reply 8):|
YES IT WAS! The MD-90 was indeed originally supposed to be Delta's 727 replacement. Delta had a large order for the MD-90. Due to the more frequent mechanical problems with the MD-90, the remaining orders were cancelled in favor of the 737-800.
