As I said, this topic has been widely discussed and to be honest I do not see any benefit in discussing the intentions of an old article.

But to answer your question: The author was obviously pro-Boeing. However we lerned about DL's 797 intentions only later after the order.

I think they will simply order the aircraft which fits best to their current needs and has the right price tag on it.
