DAL Delta Air Lines

Delta Air Lines operates 764 commercial aircraft, making it the second largest airline fleet in the world. In the past, Delta used to purchase or lease older generation aircraft and fly them for sometimes up to an age of over 30 years, much longer than most other major airlines. In 2011 however, Delta began a massive fleet-renewal effort with orders for new and modern narrow- and wide-body aircraft. As a result, Delta today still flies the second-oldest fleet among US big 4 international airlines , however with the average fleet age reduced to 13.7 years. Delta's fleet consists of 764 Airbus and Boeing aircraft. 443 Boeing aircraft make up about 60% of Delta's fleet, while its 321 Airbus aircraft make about 40%. Its 644 narrow-body aircraft comprise about 83% of its fleet, while its 120 wide-body aircraft comprise the remaining 17%.
