DL 737 Retirements

Sat Jul 21, 2001 1:22 am

This morning in the Atlanta paper it was announced Delta will be retiring 10 737 in the near future on top of the 7 727 previously announced. I think this was part of the earnings web cast.

Does anyone know which ones? I know two, the Twisted Sisters, have leases that expire in Sept and they must be included in this list.

Mainline DL has only 14 732s, 2 of which are, indeed, leased. N369DL, N367DL - models B737-2S3(A) , 1979 build.

With the exception of the B737-2J8(A)-model N235WA
all others are models B737-247(A) (that is, ordered by Western Airlines):
N244WA
N245WA
The following are, too, models B737-247(A) but were delivered after the merger:
N373DL
N374DL
N375DL
N376DL
N377DL
N378DL
N379DL
N380DL
N381DL

All these are fairly new planes, (considering the model), built 1987. Whether these are the ones to be removed from the mainline fleet, I have no idea.
