Re: DTW Detroit Aviation Thread - 2021

Re: Rumor: Used Delta Aircraft Order

DL did add to their -900ER order a couple of times, so I don't think its a stretch. (Yes, 10 were a put option by Boeing, but I firmly believe Boeing wouldn't have done that without DL's buy-in.) Not quite. In the early '10s, DL was shopping between the 739ER and 321CEO. Sources indicated DL prefer...

Re: DL Bastian presentation 3 June '21

They intend to drop four families between 2019 2025 (from 13 to nine).

They’re already eliminated the M88, M90 and 777 - that’s three families.

They’ve announced that both the 717 and 763 would be gone by the end of 2025, but it appears one may linger on a little longer.
