Boeing 717s Join Delta's Fleet

October 25, 2013 – Delta has placed the first Boeing 717 into scheduled service.

Earlier this fall, the aircraft was painted in Delta livery and began going through modifications and testing prior to being delivered to Delta.

Once in possession of the aircraft, Delta and Delta TechOps performed additional certifications, modifications and training prior to placing the aircraft into service.

Delta’s first Boeing 717 took flight on its inaugural journey from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The 110-seat aircraft arrived at Newark Liberty International Airport, ushering a new aircraft type into Delta’s mainline fleet.

Delta is scheduled to receive 88 Boeing 717s, through 2015 and each aircraft will be refurbished with in-flight Wi-Fi, updated avionics, new liveries and all refreshed interiors.

The Boeing 717s will primarily replace small 50-seat regional jets on a capacity-neutral basis, providing Delta with significant improvement in economic efficiency relative to the aircraft they replace.

While this is not a new aircraft, it is a new technology aircraft. When the modifications are done, the interiors are updated and these aircraft put into service, they will be a more efficient and competitive product in the market they fly.

The interior seat configuration will consist of 110 “slim-line” seats featuring 12 First Class, 15 Economy Comfort and 83 Economy seats. All Economy seats will be positioned in a 2-3 arrangement with a single middle seat per row. The cabin will feature new cool-white fluorescent lighting, carpeting, laminates and side wall covering.
