All but one are gone. They've sold a few to World Airways. Sure will miss those birds. ATL is boring as all hell without them! ATL is basically an Md-88 and CRJ airport with a some heavies packed into the mix. As far as frequency is concerned.

I saw a 767 (N140DL) at a gate in ATL that needs a paint job something terrible...it's the really old "widget" livery and the paint is pretty much gone along the top 3/4 of the fuselage - the engine logo was missing the "D" (elta). It was a sad representative of Delta Airlines. Wish I'd had a camera because this bird was in terrible shape.

Yep World Airways is buy up the last 8 that were with DL, and some will be converted to all-freight, CF and some will stay as passenger config's. Fear not M11 fans, World has quite a few contracts out of ATL and you'll see FedEx in there as well.

Only 1 remains?

Don't they need at least two if not three to operate the ATL-NRT route?

Actually 3 are still remaining to fly ATL NRT route and only 1 has been sub leased (not sold) to World. There is a potential for a couple additional aircraft to be sub leased as well.
