Delta's Registration

Mon Jul 17, 2000 12:54 pm

Does anyone know why Delta aircraft have different registration characters such as DL, DA, DE, DN? Is there a logical reason for all these different combinations? Thanks.

Given a choice, DL would want to have them all 'DL'. But they must go with what is available to them. So they will vary the last character in the reg. to keep the rest of the characters in sequence.
