This is one reason why I absolutely love the mighty Delta Air Lines. They don't need a 744 to prove they are mighty like others. Just take a look at American & Continental also. They don't need 747s. Delta has been performing so nicely without it. Its also proof that the MD-11 must be doing something well for them to keep it. I think the 777s & MD-11s are what sets Delta apart from the rest. Even before the MD-11, it was the almighty L10 TriStar, which we will all remember as long as we live. The TriStar & 767s were its biggest jets. Now, besides the MD-11, my personal faves Delta & Continental as aquired two of the ultimate long range weapons, the awesome 767-400ER and 777s. I would always say that those two are the ultimate carriers of the United States of America.
Bring back McDonnell Douglas & T W A!!
