It’s been long rumored that delta wants to be the launch customer of the 797. But what are the chances since they already operate a huge airbus fleet which will consist of 200 plus 321 and 321 neo aircraft that they order this aircraft? Is it the right choice for 757 tatl routes from Boston nyc and ...Jump to post
Delta will receive their first 321 neo in the first quarter of 2020. The only thing we know that delta has publicly stated is that these airplanes will fly from lax and sea to Hawaii. What else will these airplanes do? I have no facts to support this but I feel like this aircraft will end up being t...Jump to post
Nope. I don't think they are interested in a Long range narrowbody, or they would have ordered atlest the LR when they ordered the NEO. DL currently has 100 A321neo on order. I'd be very surprised if they weren't able to convert at least some to LR/XLR. Way too early to say definitively one way or ...Jump to post
Delta won’t order anything at this show especially if there is no 797 launchJump to post

Interesting I was reading on this website that air transat is starting a bunch of European destinations from yyz and yul using a321LR I think yyz-dub and yul-Tls were in there. Probably only summer routes but got me thinking with the options delta has for the Neo, if they add on the 321LR delta coul...Jump to post
One of the things I’ve seen delta do since the 321 ceo have been here is replacing prior 737900 routes but not all of them I’ll use dtw as an example Dtw-las,phx,San is now basically all 321 year round but dtw-lax is a spilt, dtw-sfo,pdx,sea are all 737-900 or 757 I wonder if this has something to d...Jump to post
Logically they will be used on the longest domestic F routes presently seeing MD-88, MD-90, and 757 aircraft that will be replaced. I know of no announced plan to put anything other than domestic F in 321neos - no 'transcons with enhanced product.' Sixteen are due in 2020 - half the delivery pace o...Jump to post
I apologize if this has been discussed before, even if it has I would like to go more in depth. It has been assumed that the 321 neos for delta will do hawaii stuff and possibly transcons with an enhanced product. Where else do we see these operating? Delta in their orders said they would continue t...Jump to post
It has to do with alternate airport requirements ensuring the aircraft has enough range to fly to thoseJump to post

Dumb Question (And forgot my ignorance, I'm not an aviation expert) - Why doesn't Boeing just disable MCAS? Is it really necessary? Can you just train pilots on how to deal with the nose up pitch? Seems like the kind of things pilots would naturally want to counter-act. MCAS is a condition for cert...Jump to post
The 737 is too old of an air frame to graft a huge engine onto. It makes the aircraft unstable in flight. It is an unsafe design and must be withdrawn from service. Boeing clearly cannot be trusted to tell the truth. I do not speculate on crashes, I think it’s rediculous people are even speculating...Jump to post
I can’t belive the first thing people are saying on this thread is ground the max! What if there was a terrorist on board, should we still ground it then?
We have no idea what caused this crash can we wait a couple days for our knee jerk reactions?
People died here
Even if the elevator was jammed, the aircraft could still have elevator compression from such a high speed dive hence it starting to gradually nose up prior to impact. I agree. It could have been an intentional pullout, but it might also have been the bottom of a phugoid - the water was just too cl...Jump to post
Has anyone considered the possibility of a wake turbulence encounter yet? Not sure who was ahead of them but even an a321 has significant wake, enough to get situationally aware. Or there is the American plane from 2001 where the tail was ripped off from control inputs due to wakeJump to post
All these posts about bird strikes, fires, flight control issues and what not are pointless. The crew would have had time to radio in something, anything. Why are we so impatient and self proclaimed ntsb investigators. Within 2 weeks all boxes will probably have been reviewed and we will knowJump to post
We need to be better right now as aviation enthusiests and as compassionate human beings.
No one knows what happened. Airplanes don’t just nose over and dive for no reason. The ntsb will tell us what happen, until then I really feel terrible for the families of atlas air
Delta’s original order was for 75 with options for I think 75 more
The first 35 had to be 100’a
The 717 will not be at delta long term
I expect many follow on orders for the 220 in the future at delta
They probably will have 150-200 at some point
I heard it was ord-mdwJump to post
Delta does not show their cards until the very end, while I don’t think it will be dtw, anything is possible with delta until the very end. Ill give you an example.... all the time they were saying the a220 would be based in nyc and lax to start and when the first two bases were announced it was nyc...Jump to post

IIRC, I believe NW flew a Seasonal DTW-BZN back in the with A319/A320, but I'm not sure.
Every 737-800 besides 6 were delivered between 4 years of each other so they are all getting older but still have 10 years left on them at delta at leastJump to post
Looks like they are headed thereJump to post
Where are they heading east now?Jump to post
I’m reading a lot of of they should have done this or that and flying the airplane with full trim up or down is easy, let’s stop right there; they may be designed to work that way but it ain’t easy in the least bit. It would take an incredible amount of control force it to hold an airplane level wit...Jump to post
The only change I am aware of is that the spoilers are fly by wire now and there is an elevator jam system using those spoilers which aids the pilot in the event of an elevator jamJump to post
I am very sorry for every family that lost a loved one today: A couple things. If the aircraft was on autopilot and the air speeds started disagreeing with each other or both, the aircraft could start trimming to maintain whatever it thinks it should be doing. There are procedures to handle a disagr...Jump to post
Has anyone noticed that starting about 2 months ago there has been a more positive vibe with dtw and delta? Adding new routes, defending the turf a little, bringing back new routes? I wonder what suddenly brought the change? According to their ceo , there are more international announcements coming ...Jump to post
Something I was thinking about the other day There have been a ton of new routes announced from ams Lately by dal/klm Tpa mco ind las dfw and they haven’t taken away any of the dtw ams flights, yet anyways.
