Delta Air Lines is still flying all of its new Airbus A220s even as it grounds more than half of its fleet in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, which has knocked out nearly all demand.
The Atlanta-based carrier had temporarily parked 325 of its 874 mainline aircraft at the end of March as it works towards parking some 650 planes, Delta said in a first quarter financial disclosure. While the airline was still flying every type in its fleet, it notably had not parked any of its 31 A220-100s.
The A220s are among Delta's newest jets. The aircraft, developed by Bombardier, is the first all-new commercial narrow-body jet by a western planemaker since the introduction of the Embraer E-Jet in 2004.
Delta introduced the A220-100 in February 2019 and has firm orders for another 64 planes....
