Delta 777's

Thu Aug 31, 2000 5:12 am

According to Delta's Web-site, they have more 772's on order (I think it's 6). Does anybody know when they will take delivery of them? Also, what routes will they be used on - more trans-atlantic, or perhaps some trans-pacific?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

cheers, Phil.

I was looking at the 777 deliveries last night at work. Ship 7008 is not going to be delivered until mid 2002. Total firm orders stand at 14 aircraft. Sorry, I don't remember the number of options and "rolling options."
This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

Thanks DL_Mech.

Can you tell me what a 'rolling option' is?

Hopefully Delta will keep buying 777's. They are great to fly on! (even in coach!)

cheers, Phil.
