Delta to expedite the retirement of its remaining McDonnell Douglas MD-90s

Delta Air Lines currently operates a dwindling fleet of 40 McDonnell Douglas MD-90-30s.

During its first quarter earnings call, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Paul Jacobson, announced the company will now accelerate the retirement of its remaining MD-90s.

The airline will provide a more definitive retirement schedule later in the second quarter.

Related to this, Delta also plans to retire the last McDonnell Douglas MD-88 in 2020. The MD-90s will be the end of line of operating McDonnell Douglas jets by Delta.
