Re: Will Delta regret not ordering a similar replacement for the Md

Delta is the most profitable airline in the world, how could they regret it. The opportunity to upgauge flights already on A319/A320/738 with newer aircraft and moving those down to replace MDs is and has been a solid plan. You have to remember older 757s are being withdrawn as well. Some passenger...
