Default DAL Class drops

In a "someone ought to..." moment, I thought I'd try and start a new thread just for drops. Might make it easier for those interested to get the latest.

Just an outsider looking in, but any idea why Delta continues to operate so many different types of narrow body? I get the merger as a main influence, but it seems like most other majors examine the combined fleet, then pick one or two and go with them for increased efficiency/flexibly.

Now you're adding the Cseries as well? Seems like that could have been covered by the 737-700 or the miniBus.

Our team was focused on shareholder returns, not the viability going forward with 800 retirements a year.

Not if the advertised 20 to 25% fuel savings on the c-series is a reality...but that remains to be seen. It might turn out like the companies expectation though of a 737-900 being a 757 replacement...that didn't quite pan out.

Not to mention Boeing plays hardball. Always. Bombardier had to beg to get those C-Series off their shelves or go bankrupt. I'm not privy to the final deal, but I'd be willing to bet the C-series were purchased at a level better than anything Boeing was willing to put forward, and before you chime in with the capacities of a 73MAX or any other variant of that frame, I'm talking seat for seat, or more to Richard's (PBUH) values...PRASM. Now throw in the fact that Delta will be the de facto maintenance facility for the next few companies that purchase them and voila...Tech Ops revenue makes the deal waaaay too good to pass up.
So should Delta have gone with the next variant of Boeing's 40-year old workhorse? I think I understand where Richard was coming from...
Heck, even Ed wouldn't lose sleep over that choice.
