Delta MD-88 and MD-90 Retiring
« on: May 25, 2020, 05:13:57 PM »
If anyone has a Delta Airlines flight plan, and if they want to know what to replace the MD-88 and Md-90 with, I'd say try assigning the 717 into there. replacing the MD-88 and MD-90

Delta is also cutting the 717 fleet by 50-67%.  The only true replacement for these aircraft would be a new flightplan because Delta and every single other major carrier will be a much smaller airline once COVID has come and gone.  I wouldn't be surprised if it takes until the second half of the decade before traffic levels return to where they were due to the combination of factors affecting the industry right now.

We are going to see retirement of so many wonderful airliners that I am seriously considering going retro with my flightplans. Winter 2019-2020 was the end of an era due to so many aircraft disappearing from our skies.
