If that’s the case, then DL will either axe all TATL 752 flights altogether, or switch them to the A321neo or B763ER in the next few years.

Are any of the 763ERs going to receive Delta One Suites? No. The 764ERs are receiving a new D1 seat that borrows a few components from the D1 Suite. Whether or not the 763ERs will get that new product, I do not know. If they do, only a few will, as the 763ERs will be leaving the fleet in the coming...

The A339 is roughly the same size as the 777-200ER. Isn't that too big for most of Delta's 767-300ER flights? That’s what I don’t understand. They would be better off ordering some A330-800s for routes that cant handle the upgauge or they just should’ve ordered the 787 in the first place... I think...

Delta strategy is to have most intl flying done by their JV partners. This is why most of the “expansion” has been more routes to AMS/CDG for the AF-KLM JV or to ICN for the KE JV. This is also one of the reasons Delta doesn’t have the proper aircraft for international growth, and why they keep get...
