DL181 HNL-NRT being operated by an A333

Tue Feb 05, 2019 8:36 pm

Today's DL 181 is being operated by an A333, is that normal? I haven't seen it be anything besides a 763. I thought DL was in the process of dismantling it's NRT "focus city"? Was this just a one time equipment swap?

Appears to have been a one-time equipment swap.

Per the Delta Widebody thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1411859&p=21069123&hilit=Delta+Widebody+Thread#p21067435

333: unscheduled swap from 763ER-low J on NRT-HNL flight - maintenance swap (N820NW)

That was yesterday's NRT-HNL flight, so it looks like the same plane is flying back to NRT (from HNL) today.

Maintenance swap. The plane is heading to PVG for heavy maintenance.
