More A350s and 737-900s will find homes in the Delta Air Lines fleet.
Plus, Austin’s airport is getting a big facelift.
Those are some of the day’s travel-related stories I thought you, too, may find interesting.
Delta Beefing Up Its Fleet
Delta Air Lines announced today it’s adding three dozen planes to the fleet.
Twenty-nine used (of course) Boeing 737-900ERs will join Delta. Seven previously-loved (isn’t that a used car term?) A350-900s will also fly for Delta “as it continues to streamline and modernize its fleet.” The planes’ additions “will improve fuel efficiency and enhance the customer experience, while supporting Delta’s fleet renewal strategy focused on simplification, scale, size and sustainability.”
I’m not very enthused about the 737s. I’d rather see more A321s. But it’s exciting that seven additional A350s will be in service! I’m eager to see which routes get the ‘350 treatment.
