Wise...if Delta gets 10 years out of these......it is a good investment. If they get 20 years it is a great investment. Northwest got 30 years out of their Mad Dogs.

Maybe DL will get length of usage too.

Delta's fleet is too large. I must make a competitor airline based on a greek letter called "Alpha" and base it out of the polar opposite city of Atlanta.
