Delta Air Lines Fleet
As of November 24, 2012, the Delta mainline fleet comprises 723 aircraft in service.
Prior to Delta's 2009 merger with Northwest Airlines, Delta operated an all-Boeing & McDonnell Douglas fleet, but incorporated Northwest's Airbus aircraft into the Delta fleet after the merger. However, Northwest operated some Boeing aircraft such as the 747 and 757.
Famous quotes containing the words air, lines and/or fleet:
“Up from the South at break of day,
Bringing to Winchester fresh dismay,
The affrighted air with a shudder bore,
Like a herald in haste, to the chieftains door,
The terrible grumble, and rumble, and roar,
Telling the battle was on once more,
And Sheridan twenty miles away.”
—Thomas Buchanan Read (18221872)
“Who will in fairest book of Nature know
How virtue may best lodged in beauty be,
Let him but learn of love to read in thee,
Stella, those fair lines which true goodness show.
There shall he find all vices overthrow,
Not by rude force, but sweetest sovereignty
—Sir Philip Sidney (15541586)
“On the middle of that quiet floor
sits a fleet of small black ships,
square-rigged, sails furled, motionless,
their spars like burned matchsticks.”
—Elizabeth Bishop (19111979)
