Delta Canceling 40 737-9 and 20 E-190 New Aircraft Orders

by Adam

During a conference call this morning to discuss their second quarter results, Delta CEO Richard Anderson announced that the carrier will cancel Boeing and Embraer orders in response to Delta pilots voting down a new contract last week. The orders included 40 B737-900s and 20 E-190 jets.  There wasn’t much other information provided besides this from Anderson – “Those orders will be canceled.”

Here was Delta’s previous announcement for the E-190 order.

Will update as further details are released…

I absolutely hate the 737-900, so I can’t say I’m sad to see this cancellation.

I’m sure Boeing is thrilled to have lost 739 orders while the A320neo book is filling up, and to be re-stuck with 20 used E190s. One could suspect this is tough talk to intimidate the pilots, that the orders could come back if a contract does happen.

Has anyone used the rear bathrooms in the 739? You can’t even turn around! They forget they have customers who are heavier/larger than the average folk and they also have a right to use a bathroom! How I wish the 752 and 753 would make a comeback!
