You can more than likely expect more of the older A320 s to be phased out in 2018 and 2019.

I know that it was posted earlier but I cannot seem to find it, but DL is planning to start phasing out the MD-88 this summer. Can someone provide the ship numbers and approximate phase out schedule as it stands now?

The 4 -800s have been registered in sequence with regular DL -800s so I would assume they are all going in service. They are relatively new frames. Now as far as the -700s are concerned they more likely will be for spares use unless WN might be interested.
