I think the idea is simpler than that. The first batch of 763ERs to be retired look to be the oldest low-J frames. That being said a number of routes remain best served by these low-J frames (ie Japan-Honolulu, smaller focus cities-EWR/SLC/CVG-Europe) so DL seems to have decided to convert some hig...Jump to post
* It is rumoured that Delta will be modifying a number of 763ER High-J to 763ER Low-J during the slow winter season. This is to reflect demand as well as counter balance the retirement of certain (2x at the latest count) 763ER Low-J scheduled during Winter 2017-18. Can you elaborate on this? I thin...Jump to post

I hear that American Airlines plans to retire their Airbus A330-300 fleet by the end of the decade, around 2019. I also hear that when this happens, AA will bring their 777 and 787 fleets to the LUS hubs, CLT and PHL. Who else knows about this and what will happen?Jump to post
I have seen numerous posts here on A.net about retrofits for Delta's single-aisle fleet, but does anyone know about possible cabin retrofits for Delta's Boeing 777, Boeing 767, or Airbus A330 fleets? I know the 767s will soon be retired, so I'm mostly curious about the 777 and A330 fleets.Jump to post
My predictions for the cabin are the new Delta Premium and new Economy seats, like the A350. As far as Delta One goes, I hope to see an updated version of the current A330 Delta One product, like the Recaro CL6710. That is, if the A330neo cannot support the Delta One Suites. If Delta wants to be com...Jump to post
With Delta's inaugural A350 flight being only a month away, I am curious what Delta's A330neo will have in store. What do you guys think some of the aircraft bases, routes, cabin features (type of seats, layout, configuration, etc.) that we can see from Delta's A330neo fleet?Jump to post
