Re: Delta Air Lines Network Thread 2018

This anet wet dream of converting Delta to all Airbus just simply isn't going to happen. Agreed. DL is simply too large to rely on one aircraft manufacturer. And before anyone brings up WN and how they only fly Boeing aircraft, DL has a much more different route structure. Hell, even the big Europe...

Re: What will Delta replace the 777 fleet with and is DAL going to order more?

I don’t see Delta retiring the 777-200LR anytime soon. Delta uses it on routes like ATL-JNB and LAX-SYD. The A359 can barely make LAX-SYD and can only make nearly 1,000 miles short of ATL-JNB. Delta would need something that can handle 8,439 mile ATL-JNB before they can replace the 777-200LR.

If Delta ever does place an order for the 777X, I think they would most likely go for the 777-8, versus the 777-9. It seems Delta doesn’t like to go for bigger planes like the 777-300ER, the 777-9’s predecessor.
