Re: Delta MD-88/90 B-717 Fleet

Its all about macroeconomic cycles. The 739 and 321 deliveries are coming very quickly (once the shutdown ends so they can actually register them), and the A220 is ramping up. If the economy stays strong, they will likely compliment those deliveries by overhauling some V2500s and returning some MD90...
