Are there any plans to do anything about the 757-300 interiors, such as the new sidewalls, pivot bins, and mood lighting like on the 757-200s? Flew on one last week and with the exception of the seats/IFE it was looking pretty tired. The one I flew before that last month still had the old-style IFE.

I doubt they will be doing anything with them anytime soon. I think given the A330 and 767 PS modifications, Viasat mods etc, they are close to maximum on what they are going to put money into regarding updating interiors over the next couple of years.

You are certainly right, the 753 is getting very tired inside as are the 738s, and even some of the worn looking 757s. There are several Airbus 319 and 320, that despite full interior modifications 5 or 6 years ago, are also looking increasingly worn down.

I would like to see them reconfigure the A321ceo to a similar galley configuration as the neo. It won't be easy on catering to have two massive fleets of the same airplane flying around. Despite different floor plans due to door locations, It would make some sense, perhaps operationally vs economically, to standardize those types seat plans for swaps.

Cool...I remember there was another 717 out there that was ferried out of storage....been in maintenance in ATL for several weeks. The active fleet is at 52.

The 753s were mod'ed in 2014. Similar timeframe to the 752s.
I have been on a ton of 752s this year and they all seem to be in just fine shape. Ironically, I'm on a 753 tomorrow for the first time in maybe 2 years.
How much of these is just cleaning/cosmetic stuff that gets taken care of during deep cleaning or heavy maintenance for when they change out carpet and seat covers versus needed a full mod?
I'll give my opinion after I fly one tomorrow.

I still get on flights often where unsuspecting passengers marvel and think they are on a brand new airplane getting on A319 (and near 30-year old) A320s.

What is the current plan for total active 717 fleet by the end of 2021? I am guessing that increased demand warrants pulling more out of storage, but I am a bit confused about how many ships Delta permanently removed from the fleet.

I'll 2nd the question, what is the expected 717 fleet, but I'll change the timeline to summer 2022. Or, how many were permanently retired. With a planned fleet retirement in 2025, I would expect all the engines to be run on a green time only basis.

That absolutely would destroy other airline 717 overhaul economics of the BMR engines for parts custom to the 717. Luckily the high spool is common to the huge business jet fleet, so the majority of overhaul costs should be in control.

I expect this to be common (parking due to time out). MROs were begging for work in 2021 and no airline wants to pay a premium.

I heard a fleet of 69 aircraft. That was a few months ago, no idea on timelines.

The number of 717s that are still operational versus all intensive purposes "retired" is a little bit murky:

Summer 2020: Realignment of the pilot staffing and bases indicated staffing/training for operating "30-45 frames through Summer 2022, with 80% flying from ATL, 20% from DTW"
2020 Q2 10-Q (July 2020): 47 active / 44 temporarily parked (91 total); decision to retire full fleet by Dec 2025
2020 Q3 10-Q (Oct 2020): 47 active / 18 temporarily parked (65 total)
2020 Q4 10-K (Feb 2021): 46 active / 4 temporarily parked (50 total)
2021 Q1 10-Q (Apr 2021): 50 current fleet

So those are the officially reported numbers. Now in the 2nd half of 2020, and in Jan 2021, we swapping of active frames. Some that were operational through 2020 were then parked in SBD assumed to be removed from service. Others were ferried out of storage in ILN to SBD. A subset were reactivated from storage essentially replaced the ones that went out.
Assumed to be a combination of airframe/engine maintenance related parking and also lease expirations

Right now there are currently 52 in-service, and another that is out of storage about ready to return to service, so now there will be 53 in-service.
It will be interesting when a revised fleet summary comes out with Q2 earnings release and show their current numbers, along with maybe something on the acquisition of A359 and B739s.

It seems like they're just going to come out and say they won't be retiring them after all, and it may just come down to getting more favorable, short term leases on those.

There is the whole short-term domestic capacity boost, one of those situations if you don't cover the capacity, someone else will.

It's not just capacity- it's capacity at PRASM. DL may sit on its hands all day and watch Frontier or Spirit add capacity that gets avg PRASM of $0.07 or $0.08. None of the big 6 can make money at that level, let alone hit target ROIC.

Thanks for the infor on this Cactusjuba, and also to PSU.DTW.SCE. And yes, it seems like the situation is very fluid. My guess is part of the issue is that in a constrained labor environment with intensifying demand, the goal will be to return to service (or take delivery of) the largest-possible gauge aircraft. They want every pilot or gate agent or mechanic working the largest aircraft appropriate to given markets. I am sure they are trying to activate as many 717s as possible. But the first priority has to be to staffing up the 320, 737, and 757/767 fleets because you get more bang for your buck. If they can hire and train people fast enough (especially with the additional 350s coming into the fleet), then I think they will bump the 717 numbers. I commute for work on MSP-DAY, and the fares are crazy high for the fall. I have a hunch they want to get more metal in those type of markets, and the 717 could certainly bolster such a plan.

I agree with trying to upgauge as much as possible on the narrowbodies. I've read every post on the 717 and it is interesting how large a spread in possible operations there could be for S2022. However, good news that it might be far more than I was expecting.

I wonder at the engine green time. The more the 717s are flown early, the less engine green time remaining. That would be an interesting chart to watch the engine green time frade towards zero. (Of course, DL would never publish that.)

Thanks for the infor on this Cactusjuba, and also to PSU.DTW.SCE. And yes, it seems like the situation is very fluid. My guess is part of the issue is that in a constrained labor environment with intensifying demand, the goal will be to return to service (or take delivery of) the largest-possible gauge aircraft. They want every pilot or gate agent or mechanic working the largest aircraft appropriate to given markets. I am sure they are trying to activate as many 717s as possible. But the first priority has to be to staffing up the 320, 737, and 757/767 fleets because you get more bang for your buck. If they can hire and train people fast enough (especially with the additional 350s coming into the fleet), then I think they will bump the 717 numbers. I commute for work on MSP-DAY, and the fares are crazy high for the fall. I have a hunch they want to get more metal in those type of markets, and the 717 could certainly bolster such a plan.

I agree with trying to upgauge as much as possible on the narrowbodies. I've read every post on the 717 and it is interesting how large a spread in possible operations there could be for S2022. However, good news that it might be far more than I was expecting.

I wonder at the engine green time. The more the 717s are flown early, the less engine green time remaining. That would be an interesting chart to watch the engine green time frade towards zero. (Of course, DL would never publish that.)

I understand that in your opinion, DL will burn off engine "green" time to a manageable zero, before putting them out to pasture. Do you foresee a modification to that plan, as in "DL invests some money into overhauling a part of the engine pool", to avoid a precipice of "we have frames and pilots, but we are out engines, so the type has to be retired prematurely" scenario?

Cool...I remember there was another 717 out there that was ferried out of storage....been in maintenance in ATL for several weeks. The active fleet is at 52.

You are certainly right, the 753 is getting very tired inside as are the 738s, and even some of the worn looking 757s. There are several Airbus 319 and 320, that despite full interior modifications 5 or 6 years ago, are also looking increasingly worn down.

I would like to see them reconfigure the A321ceo to a similar galley configuration as the neo. It won't be easy on catering to have two massive fleets of the same airplane flying around. Despite different floor plans due to door locations, It would make some sense, perhaps operationally vs economically, to standardize those types seat plans for swaps.

The 753s were mod'ed in 2014. Similar timeframe to the 752s.
I have been on a ton of 752s this year and they all seem to be in just fine shape. Ironically, I'm on a 753 tomorrow for the first time in maybe 2 years.
How much of these is just cleaning/cosmetic stuff that gets taken care of during deep cleaning or heavy maintenance for when they change out carpet and seat covers versus needed a full mod?
I'll give my opinion after I fly one tomorrow.

I still get on flights often where unsuspecting passengers marvel and think they are on a brand new airplane getting on A319 (and near 30-year old) A320s.

Flew in F on a 753 on Monday for the first time in 2 years and frankly only minor differences from the 752. Nothing that really warrants any type of refurb at this point. You are right they didn't replace the sidewalls, bins, or overhead panels like on the 752s, but no one would really notice. Didn't seem dirty or beat-up at all. I thought it had the same generation IFE system as on the 752?
Its not the old-gen one still on some of the 738s and 763s.

Somewhat related, but what is up with the need to reboot the IFE system so frequently? Seems like 75% of the time, they have to reboot the IFE system either on the ground at pushback or just after-take off.
Its happened to me now in recent weeks on 752, 753, A333, B763. The FAs on my flight the other day were joking that they actually had to do a manual safety briefing instead of a video for the first time in forever....(they must not get assigned the 717 much then).

I get the sense that DL is bringing back additional 717s in the near-term for a couple of reasons.
1) Some of the parking may have been driven by the pilot training backlog and churn, not too indifferent than the A220 situation, with the giant shuffle for both CA and FOs. The 717 FO tends to be one of the lower seniority categories. 717 wasn't as constrained as A220 training.

2) Needing to "defend" and bulk-up ATL. ATL is still 30% fewer in departures in summer 2021 vs summer 2019. They basically need more 717s to backfill the void of the MD88/90 in ATL as capacity continues to ramp-up. With the direct competition from WN and indirect with AA-CLT there is a need for more seats in markets than RJs. While A220 is backfilling the 717 in NYC, SLC, and some of the Texas stuff, its not backfilling 717 in ATL and DTW.

3) Scope clause implications - DL has to keep its DCI flying in check / proportion with mainline flying

4) All things being equal - probably makes sense to bring back more 717s than CR2s at this point; particularly as frequency at DTW and ATL is less than pre-Covid but increasing going towards larger aircraft on fewer frequency.

The 763 IFE system has been very temperamental since the cabin refurbs in 2012 or so. It also involves the call lights on certain aircraft, which are accessed through the ptvs as you know. They randomly go off, or go into some sort of delay queue. Many flight attendants, especially non-pursers, do not know how to use the system properly and Delta doesn't really provide a lot of training on these types of things for them. When they manually "close" the flight and then power down the system, it will start up very nicely and often work well for the entire flight, relatively. However there are a lot of FAs, when there is a glitch, that just press the hard power off IFE and that seems to cause a lot of issues with the system overall.

With how rapid travel has returned I won’t be surprised if all return either. DL panicked during COVID gave a bunch of employees packages to leave or retire. And now they are short staffed severely. Same with the fleet sold,retired or parked many aircraft. Now they are bringing them back online.

I wouldn't think so. Pre-COVID, DL insiders leaked that largely due to swelling labor costs, DL was doing a 180 on the 717, and the type would be gone by mid-decade. Alas, I don't think that DL made a rush decision, and I think the 717 are now less attractive than they were before. E.g. pre-COVID, DL could fill up a 717 from places like ATW to ATL with mostly people headed to sun destinations, but make money from the other option that was people traveling on business. Now, the business travelers are largely gone and the sun destination fares are lower. Makes more sense to put a larger RJ on the route, or even route traffic via MSP/DTW until business travel rebounds.

That said... I wouldn't be surprised. As long as taxpayers continue to bankroll a large portion of the legacies payroll, they'll probably continue to chase market share. UA has long commented that its actual domestic market share is below its "natural" share, and they sure look poised to make a go for it in the next couple years. If there's a silver lining, it will keep fares low into the near-future.

*** Dear a.net, by "low fare," I mean that average fares will continue to be below pre-COVID. Yes, you may have been able to score a $99 fare to MCO pre-COVID... but now tickets at that price point are more abundant. And I can buy a flight from LAX-RDU at the last minute for less than half of what I could pre-COVID. These drive average fares, and thus revenues, down.

The airlines made the right move. If it wasn't for taxpayers continuing to pay for most of their payroll expense, there would be a far larger number of jets remaining parked in the desert.

Well IIRC some have already been returned to the lessor, so unlikely they all return. I also think it’s premature to say DL will need them in the near term. There are new aircraft deliveries and travel is still down double digit percentage points.

Just glancing at the 10K filings, as the 717 were coming off-lease, DL was re-releasing them; the new leases were categorized as capital leases. YOY, most of the planes categorized as operating leases have dropped off the 10K filing, and per WN's 10K, most of the leases were expiring in 2020 and 2021. Thus, most likely DL has returned these planes to Boeing...

That kind of jives with what sounds like a near-term fleet flexing up to 65 +/- active aircraft as the ceiling....
The question is do the remainder swap out anything coming off lease, or not. Reality is they probably aren't needed until Spring/Summer 2022.
As you can see below, the amount of 717 flying currently is where it was in 2019 for ATL, and only slightly off for ATL. All the stuff that was pulled was the NYC, MSP, and remnants of the West Coast stuff that was already being replaced by A220 flying.

That's not to say they can't be leased again if needed. While it's likely that won't happen, it's a possibility. I wonder if they could get even more favorable leasing terms if they so choose to change their mind and fly them for longer.

I doubt DL was paying much for them anyway -- if DL had declined to re-lease the aircraft, their value is basically scrap. Plus, in 2019, DL did buy the ten or so aircraft that were outrighted owned by WN. The issue is likely operating economics. Any price reduction would likely be immaterial. As I mentioned, very early last year (pre-COVID fallout), DL insiders leaked that the airline was likely to retire them soon, as swelling labor and maintenance costs made it challenging to turn a profit. And the situation's unquestionably worse today.

My bet is that DL will operate the minimum number of A220 required to satisfy scope, then move on. I'll bet that four years from now, the A220 will largely be filling in the role the 717 played the last decade.
