More of a short term question but anybody know what's up with the 767-400 that's been sitting at the DTW 4R de-ice pad for a few days now?

No. (Filler.) Look at the fleet, the routes, and the widebody orders and delivery positions. DL shows zero interest in something so large.

Delta Suites Conversion Update
N709DN (77L) is scheduled to commence the long journey to SIN for conversion and maintenance on Friday 8/16. First up a scheduled additional one off ATL-NRT commercial flight (DL 269, which is in addition to the usual DL 295 departure). This followed by a ferry flight NRT-SIN.

Probably not, for the same reason they never ordered the 77W.

Every airline customer of the 777X so far is a single-hub airline (except arguably Lufthansa, but they only have one that matters). With their multi-hub structures, US airlines do better with multiple flights from different hubs to overseas destinations than with a single flight from one hub on a giant plane.

I just noticed that both FR24 and FlightAware are showing N709DN as ferrying from NRT>ATL as DL9960 tomorrow. Is this just a glitch on these sites?

It’s probably just the filed flight number (as an extra section) vs the flight number under which they’re selling seats for the plane. Or it could just be a screw up by the dispatcher who filed the preliminary flight plan.
Every time I get on an airliner, I’m reminded why I have a job.

Not sure if this has been posted but on October 22md MSP-ICN switches from a Boeing 777 to an Airbus 350. Is this a permanent change and is this a yet to be delivered 350? DL is taking delivery of two more 350's but I am not sure if its this year or next year. Thanks.

Next year on the final 2 350s. I'd assume the 330-900 is overtaking the SEA-NRT route, freeing up the 350.


this move also frees up a 77L. I can see the MSP 77L replacing a 77L in the old configuration thus allowing the next 77L to go in for mods.


DL doesn't routinely operated 77L between MSP and any of its 777 destinations (HND, ICN or CDG). They're operated by 77E.
As of Dec 2019 I've flown 457,440 miles on 270 flights on 54 airplane types with 60 airlines traveling thru 104 airports. I've visited 60 countries.

N709DN is now scheduled to do a regular NRT-MNL-NRT rotation (subbing for the regular 76Z) on Aug 17-18 after it arrives in NRT.

Yeah I'm not so sure it's going to SIN for conversion.

Supposedly 7101 will be the next one to go in late September.

Also their 777 fleet is young I could see them buying second hand 777’s before any new 777x. DL was never into large widebodies.

If it is in fact ferrying back to Atlanta, how on earth would it be cost effective to fly a one-off flight all the way to Tokyo and go through the expense of flying it back empty?

DL hasn't bought any used widebodies since the GF 763 lemons, and I'd bet against them doing it again. If incremental widebody lift is needed it will come in the form of more 339s or 359s depending on the needed range.

There will be a more than incremental order needed in the medium term to replace the later 763s, the 764s, and possibly the legacy NW 330s. Some part of that might go to the 797 if Boeing launches it, but most of it will be another 787 vs. A350 contest. I don't see any more 777s, either X or not, in Delta's foreseeable future.

I'm curious as to why N709DN didn't ferry from NRT>CAN as expected for mods last week, but instead did a NRT>MNL>NRT turn, then ferried back to ATL? Seems a bit strange considering that its pending entry to CAN had been well noted on here.

75W refers to the 757-300 fleet, correct?

753s are 75Y, I believe. 75W should be the 752s with lay-flat seats.

With the weight increase on the 339, there is almost no need for the A359 anymore. Delta will fly the 339 to it's limits, trans pacific, everywhere.

Let me know when the A339neo can fly ATL-ICN a 13+ hour flight in a 359, same with DTW-PVG with passenger and a good cargo load.

The 251T 339 can easily fly DTW-PVG.

Yes but we only have 242t on board now, an A359 obviously has better range. I’m not gonna dispute the A339 is an extremely capable plane in 251t guise.

There's a point where the 350 is just more efficient than a 339. I don't know exactly where that is but I think it's somewhere around 5500 - 6000 nm.

Maybe it can but certainly not with the same payload has the A359

75S is Delta's code for it. 75W is the IATA code (I might be slightly off on this).

Was the aircraft involved in the PDL incident a 75S? To the best of my knowledge, JFK-PDL was being operates by a domestically configured 757.

Correct on 18 75S's in the fleet (although with the recent incident with one of them, that may go down to 17).


Was the aircraft involved in the PDL incident a 75S? To the best of my knowledge, JFK-PDL was being operates by a domestically configured 757.


I think you’re right. I stand corrected.

I thought the S fleet was the TWA Birds picked up back in 2008 from AA There were something like 24 TWA 757’s Delta didn’t take all of them. It was a brilliant purchase they were low cycle aircraft. Hard to believe they have 70k plus hours on the clock.

When will N403DX go into commercial service, and will it free up 401 or 402 from their SEA-PVG-SEA rotations before the next A330neo route launches?

With the third frame they will be able to fly SEA-PVG and ICN every day. Not sure about launch date - but presumably soon after 403 exits induction.

I thought they needed at least 2 frames for each route, in order to fly them both daily.

It would be tight, but SEA-PVG/ICN can both be operated daily with only 3 frames. The ICN-SEA arrival at ~1345 would turn to SEA-PVG at ~1530.

They are both scheduled for daily 339 service beginning Monday 16 September. 404DX hasn't even flown yet, so there is no way they are getting a fourth airplane before then. It will be real tight, but my guess is that after the end of the summer high season there will be enough widebody slack that they think they can sub in other fleets if the 339 goes tech.

Took over the delayed BCN flight from the previous day when ship 3326 went tech in JFK
Nothing better than the sound of a 77W GE90-115B on engine start.
