Not really referb related, but a 75C has been chartered by the Rolling Stones for their tour, and a Rolling Stones decal has been applied under the Delta titles.

N650DL is the reg, it took the Atlanta Braves to MDW following their game in IAD, and turned back to EWR with Jagger and crew in tow.

2 MD-90s have been parked in the past week, what now is the current story/fleet plan for the MD-90s? How low is the fleet going to drop by the end of the year?

Don't quote me but I was told a) their retirement had been sped up and b) their retirement had been spread out...in last week from two people with ties to flight ops. The engine overhaul issue is the wildcard with the spec only handled in NZ.

Are you sure N650DL being for the Rolling Stones for the whole tour? I was in Chicago this weekend saw a 757 on Friday at MDW.. The stones played soldier field Friday and stayed at the Peninsula they had rooms booked through tonight. They took over much of the 16th and 17th floor of the the hotel...playing soldier field again tonight

I believe they chartered a 757 for their crew and such which was a very large entourage that I saw at the hotel, but is it possible they had DL put decals on a different plane for their next flight? N650DL has since done EWR-HOU and HOU-LAX. none of which are where the rolling stones are.

I don't understand the overhaul issue from the IAE engines on the MD90. Are they so different from the Airbus engines, despite DL not having IAE Airbus engines, they can't be performed stateside?

Seems like DL has slowed, not sped up, the pacing of MD-88 and -90 retirements. Per initial press releases, both types were to be gone by the end of 2019, but now that’s been stretched to early 2020. DL still has 110 88/90; If we consider “early 2020” to be the end of the first quarter, that means DL will be averaging (straight-line) over 5 retirements a month, a pacing they’ve yet to match.

That said, some sources are projecting mass 88 retirements at the end of the summer schedule.

They’ve never said the 90s would retire in ‘19. During the most recent earnings call, they said they were studying an acceleration of the 90 retirement schedule, which could now mean 2020. But they haven’t announced that publicly yet.

I was recently on an AS, former VX, A320 with the spaceflex V1 galley and I was surprised It had much larger lavatories than DL's 319/320 spaceflex configuration. I can't understand WHY DL, so customer focused, ever chose that atrocious configuration they did? Not to mention, boarding on the 319 and 320 takes forever because the bins have been rigged in a way to assist their closure, which prevents them from opening even half way down, therefore pax must stop and try to pull a bin down while simultaneously attempting to lift their bag with one-hand. How does Delta make these decisions? How much longer will the 320s and 319s be around before an estimated replacement is needed? IIRC there were two delivery batches of 320s, many are 95-1999 and the 319s have a lot of life left as most were delivered after 1999?

Typo, I meant by the end of 2020 now stretched to early 2021. The math I included should’ve given that away ;).

They still have all of the -88s going by the end of 2020, and they're trying to get the -90s out of here by 2023.

I don't get people's obsession with bathrooms on an airplane. They work just fine if you have to go, and surprisingly most people don't even use a bathroom when on the plane.

As for boarding, do you have any evidence that an A320 takes any longer than a 737-800 to board? Once one bag is in a bin, they load easily, there are usually flight attendants in the isles helping get the first bag in, and because they have so much more room and they're not taking time to move things around or gate check bags it actually SPEEDS UP the boarding process. With the bigger bins, nose to tail AVOD and freshened interior, Delta's A319/320 series are the best 320s flying in the US. And the new Airbus interior in the 321 is very nice as well. I go out of my way to fly the 319/320/321 over the 738.

Already a problem child.

APU auto shutdown the first issue, and a flaps disagree the next. Let's hope the flight on the 6th does the charm.

Wrong thread! You've already posted this in the "Delta Widebody Thread - 2019". It certainly isn't at CAN being modded with the 4-class interior, so can we assume that it's in ATL for some mx perhaps?

3930 showing induction exit later today: https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/n930dz
This is the final 739 to join the fleet.
Note that there are 36 that do not have split scimitar winglets, and those mods will begin soon.

I don't know that we will see any parked MD-90s make a brief return from the desert but today DL announced that all MD-90s are to be retired by end 2022.

The MD-90s will be retired by the end of 2022, not 2020.

"During the quarter, the company decided to accelerate retirement of its MD-90 fleet by two years to the end of 2022, which pressured CASM-Ex by approximately $60 million due to higher depreciation expense."

All of the M90's presently parked have been changed to permanent removal.

Chill out. "Wrong thread" as if half of the comments in any of the threads are relevant to the particular discussion anyway.

Where is the single 767-400ER with the new D1 cabin? The seat map is loaded on Delta.com also if someone can post the tail number that would be helpful.
