World renown airline carrier, Delta Airlines, has promised two-hundred Airbus A321neos for the company’s newest phase of their narrow-body fleet replacement program. This commitment will include up to one-hundred firm aircraft and an additional one-hundred option that includes deliveries from 2020 to 2023.
Delta Airlines has chosen Pratt & Whitney Engines PW1100G for their A321neos. Ed Bastian, the chief executive of Delta Aviation, believes that this commitment is taking place at the right time for the airlines customers and employers. This purchase will be over twenty-five billion dollars according to list prices.
Delta will organize the A321neos with almost 200 seats, and will also replace the older narrow-bodies in the airline’s fleet of planes, which includes both the Airbus A320 and Boeing’s 757-200 and MD-90. Delta Aviation runs almost 65 Airbus A320s which hold an average age of around 22.2 years. They operate one-hundred and eleven 757-200s, with their average age being twenty-two point five years. Lastly, Delta operates over 60 Boeing MD-90s, with the average age of twenty point six years.
The airline carrier revealed plans for a big A320neo or Boeing 737 Max family order this past October. During this reveal, Ed Bastian signified it as one of the biggest and most significant proposals in the aerospace market. Reports show an order for the Airbus narrow-body instead of the 737 Max. A number of reasons support the favor of the Airbus narrow-body such as the trade dispute among Bombardier and Boeing in regard to Delta’s order for seventy-five CS100s. Before the Ad321neo order, Delta airlines ordered over 140 Airbus aircrafts, which includes over 90 A321s.
