Delta drops 18 Dreamliner orders that came with Northwest merger


Delta Air Lines has abandoned an earlier order for 18 Boeing widebody Dreamliner aircraft valued at US$4 billion - a commitment the company inherited through its 2008 merger with Northwest Airlines - after reaching an agreement with Boeing on the cancellation.
However, the US carrier is proceeding with orders already in the pipeline, comprising of 120 narrow-body Boeing 737-900ERs.
"This business decision is consistent with Delta's fleet strategy to prudently address our widebody aircraft needs," said Delta vice president Greg May, reported the American Journal of Transportation.
Delta earlier this year deferred taking four Airbus A350s until 2019 and 2020, instead of in 2018 as originally scheduled. The airline still has widebody orders for 25 A350s and 25 smaller A330neo planes on its books. The B787s have a list price of $224.6 million each.
"We've been working closely with Delta as their needs have evolved since inheriting the order from Northwest," said Boeing spokesman John Dern. "Delta is a valued customer and we continue working with them to meet their future fleet requirements. Customer interest in the 787 continues to be strong, with almost 1,200 orders to date."
