[quote= Rumors are that the first 7HB is scheduled to remain as a spare (including providing crew sleeping areas) during the harder winter months. It was discussed that it could be parked at JFK/DTW/MSP ahead of a storm and provide sleeping beds for out of town crews so they are ready to go as soon as the weather clears.[/quote]

I read that article about Delta trying to think outside the box with regards to storms and cutting down on cancellations while getting things back to normal as quick;y as possible. If there is a thread already going about this I apologize please re-direct me.

I am also sure someone at Delta has done the math but could it be cost effective to fly a 77HB with crew and storm troopers to a City just to house them? The cost of fuel, flight crew, etc. What is the cost of running an APU throughout the storm or can gate power and HVAC stand alone? What about the cycle on the aircraft and then positioning it after the storm?

Clearly you would think Delta could get there storm troopers to the airport non-rev even if it took a few flights, and then put them in crew hotels where Delta has negotiated rates. I know the D1 suite if comfortable enough if you have to fly a long haul flight but the aircraft certainly is not set up for a mobile hotel. If I was a Delta employee (I call them storm troopers) being deployed out of town to help during a storm, I would hope for better accommodations when I got a chance to rest.

This relates to aircraft swap with the 7HD conversion program. The aircraft will swap in HND so a 772 will fly the MSP-HND flight and a 7HD will fly the HND-MSP return flight. The 772 will then continue on a ferry flight to SIN.

so I'm curious about the reference to "maintenance exit"?

should have said "maintenance entry". Flightstar Aircraft Services has an MRO facility there which has some expertise with the 763, most recently with United and Fedex.


Must have been a fairly quick maintenance visit. Reentering service tonight as DL147 ATL-SCL.

IIRC the goal is to have 3 or 4 done by the summer, with the ER fleet completely finished, so that LAX-SYD can go to the new cabin.

The rest will be done after S19.

Sweet! Will they continue renovating the 764s frame-by-frame, and one after another like with the 777s?

Im not sure, all I know is they're getting the mods in CAN not SIN. I assume it will be the frame by frame like the 77Es.

Anyone have any thoughts on what's going on with the only 772LR (7HB) N706DN to have been modded? It did 10 flights from 7th-26th November and then sat outside TechOps for 11 days, where I saw it on Thursday morning, and then by Friday evening, it had been moved inside? I know it could be used as a spare, but that's a lot of days sitting idle doing no revenue flights! With the two 772ERs at SIN being modded, and the 7HB sitting idle, that leaves the 15 others still flying, but perhaps that's enough for the winter schedule?

By the looks of it, 772 operations have ceased effective 12/13. The three remaining frames seem to be going through maintenance in ATL until seeing their turn in SIN for mods. There may be some unscheduled swaps and/or charters on those frames but scheduled operations seem to have come to an end.
