Where/how were those numbers shared, please? The 10-Q filing says those have been retired already this quarter but doesn't give a number of 767s or A320s to be retired thru the quarter or balance of the year.
In the June 2020 quarter we retired our MD-90 fleet, seven 767-300ER aircraft and 10 A320 aircraft and will retire our 777 and 737-700 fleets by October 2020.
In the June 2020 quarter we recorded impairment
charges of $1.4 billion related to the 777 fleet, $330 million related to the MD-90 fleet, $220 million related to the 737-700 fleet, $180 million related to the seven
retired 767-300ER aircraft and $60 million related to the ten retired A320 aircraft in restructuring charges in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations
and Comprehensive (Loss) Income ("income statement"). These impairment charges were calculated using Level 3 fair value inputs based primarily upon
forecasted future cash flows, recent market transactions, published pricing guides and our assessment of existing market conditions based on industry knowledge.
Following the impairment charges, the remaining cumulative net book value for these aircraft is $370 million.
To make the subtype avg age numbers work (planespotters.net, 62 at 24.9 years; DL's present 52 at 24.2 years) implies that the ten A320s retired had an avg age of 28.5 years. Both Planespotters and DL round to the nearest tenth of year so there may be a little room for error.
