Delta RFP

We have found very interesting analysis on Delta RFP in Airchive blog

In summary, for Delta conservative fleet approach

  • Replacement of B767-300ER : B787 vs A330(neo) => A330neo
  • Replacement of B747: B777-300ER vs A350-1000 => B777-300ER with quite pricing assumptions on B777 vs A350.  Remark: I belive that Airbus will market A380 in this segment in complement of A350.
