Boeing appears to have fulfilled its orders with Delta.
Enrique Perrella writes at Airways magazine that 737 Next Gen plane N930DZ arrived yesterday in Atlanta. In the past nine years, Delta ordered 130 of the 737-900 ER planes. (Not to be confused with the 737 MAX — none of which Delta flies.)
The only new aircraft Delta will receive — at least for the time being — are Airbus equipment. Several A330-900neos will soon join the mothership’s fleet (remember Delta deferred a number of its A350 order). Delta recently announced the A220 will serve more routes.
And Delta placed a large A321neo order less than two years ago — luckily choosing that product over the 737 MAX.
End of an Era?
Don’t yet write eulogies for all the Boeing planes you’ve loved. (Although, one can’t help but get nostalgic for the Queen of the Skies.)
Hundreds of the Seattle-based company’s planes in Delta livery will roam skies for the foreseeable future.
Keep in mind Delta is refreshing its 767-400 ERs with an updated Delta One product. Starting November 4, all flights between LAX and JFK will exclusively be flown with 767-300s.
Do You Have a Favorite (Or Otherwise) Delta Boeing Plane?
Does seeing any specific Delta-painted Boeing planes make you smile? Personally, I have great memories of international flights on 767s, so they’re sort of my favorite. The loooong 757-300s always catch my attention, too.
Do you have a favorite Boeing plane to ride when flying Delta? Does one not get you too excited? (Remember: the CRJ-200 is not a Boeing product 😉 )
