Since Delta was a McDonnell Douglas customer, I should also wonder why Delta went with the 737-300 over the MD-87.
|Quoting Dutchjet (Reply 5):
Delta did not go with the 733......as I said above, DL cancelled its order for the 733 and never accepted delivery of any of the newly build airplanes.

Actually, five 737-332's were delivered in the early -90's. IIRC, the two that went to Turkmenistan were operated by DL for a little over a year, the two that went to China Xinhua were delivered but never operated by DL and the single plane that went to Phillipine Airlines was not flown by DL
ALL five planes (N301DE-N305DE) were delivered to ATL and two were actually painted in the widget livery.

I remember seeing a pic of one or two painted in Delta colors, but thats it.
