Delta Previews B717 Fleet – Fresh Paint & Brand New Interiors

Delta’s blog today shared a few details and pictures of the spiffed up AirTran 717s. The first DL 717 was set to take to the sky in mid September, but the launch date was recently pushed back to the end of the month. The aircraft will be used to replace Delta’s smaller CRJs and DC9s. Check out the full details here.

We are excited to share some pictures of the first Delta 717 all dressed up in its new paint job. You’ll notice the ship number – 9564 – is a nod to the 717’s original MD-95 moniker. In total, Delta will be receiving 88 of these aircraft updated with bright new interiors. Here are the details of what you can expect when they take to the skies this fall:

  1. AT had 12 F class and 105 economy on these birds
    DL has 12 F, 15 EC and 83 Y; with an extra inch of seat pitch in Y
    As DL gets newer planes, look for fewer F class seats and more EC.
