Delta Has 194 Aircraft Purchase Commitments, Including Five 757s

According to the Delta Air Lines 2015 First Quarter Report it filed with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), Delta has purchase commitments for 194 aircraft, including five Boeing 757-200 aircraft.

When one combines all of Delta’s purchase commitments, they total to approximately $13.6 billion; it has commitments for 45 A321-200s, 10 A330-200s, 25 A330-900neos, 25 A350-900s, 3 717-200s, 63 737-900ERs, 5 757-200s, and 18 787-8s.

The five 757-200s, expected to be configured into Delta’s international 757 configuration when they arrive in the fleet later this year, are rumored to be coming from Shanghai Airlines which owns some of the very last 757s that came off the 757 line. Meanwhile, Delta has been retiring some of its older 757s and replacing them with new 737-900ERs.

In regards to Delta’s 787 order that it inherited through its merger with Northwest, we have learned that Delta has “certain aircraft substitution rights” with its commitment for the 18 Boeing 787s. Will Delta sub the 787 for a different aircraft? Only time will tell, but the first 787 is not expected to arrive in the Delta fleet until at least 2020.

China's 'Air Force One' gets escorted by 8 fighter jets in cool video

The background: China’s president Xi Jinping was visiting Pakistan so Pakistan sent eight JF-17 Thunder fighter jets to escort China’s presidential plane when it entered Pakistani air space in a nice diplomatic gesture. The cool: I just like seeing small little fighter jets trailing a big jet in a flying-V pattern.
