Does anyone know if DELTA AIR LINES has finished
painting all its aircrafts in new color ? I only saw new painting for B767-300 and B737-800. Any
idea ?

Not all of them have been painted yet. Last week I flew a 727-232 on the Delta Shuttle, which was in the new colors, but I saw some that hadn't been painted. They probably wait until they are due for an overhaul to paint them.

I saw an old 737? today going into SNA. I like the new paint alor more it looks really clean.

I flew on a newly painted MD-11 this last summer. Nice. On the reverse trip, I flew in an old MD-11, it has it's own charm.

Living in Dallas, where Delta has a hub, it appears to me like most
of their aircraft are still in their old colors.
I've flown on 9V-SPK.
