Are All DL Connection Planes In New Livery?

Wed Jul 04, 2012 1:15 am

I couldn't find an answer, so I had to ask if all the DL Connection planes are now in the "Onward & Upward" livery.

Last I checked about a month ago, there were only four or five wavy gravy birds left (2-3 OO and 2 RP). I assume they have been repainted by now, but the original thread with the repaint list is locked, so here I am with the question.

Here's a pretty comprehensive thread that's been going on for quite some time. Latest info is ~4 weeks old.

A few months ago, all you would see at YYC would be the old Delta Connection livery and it would be a rare thing to see the new colors, but today all you see is the new colors.

410SW, 411SW, and 438SW are still in old colors unless they entered paint over the past couple days. They all look pretty bad by now.

The 3 OO CRJs are the only 3 aircraft left in the Wavy Gravy colors. The last 2 RP ERJs have been repainted. It's only a matter of time before the CRJs are repainted or retired. 410 and 411 are 17 years old! With the wind down in CRJ flying, they might not be repainted before retirement. 438 is a 2001 build so I'm sure that one will get repainted sooner than later.

On a side note, I flew 410 this March and it had a completely redone interior with new leather seats and overhead bin paint. I wonder how many others have had this done?

Wonder if that's the one I was on too then, cause mine had that as well

I'm sure they will. The 50 seater drawdown isn't expected to start until next year and run roughly 3 years (maybe less; it comes down to the language in the DALPA contract) to reduce the fleet from from 366 (current cap) to 166 (new cap). This will not happen overnight it will take some time. DL painted SF3 and some DC9s only to pull them months later.

I just flew home a Skywest RJ (200) from MSP about a week ago that was still in the "wavy" livery, which I was very surprised about. It was definitely the minority in the A & B Concourses at MSP.
