Just a quick note - some aircraft are manufactured with parts of the interior installed before the fuselage sections are joined. Some modules / components are too large to fit through the doors.

That's OK, at least you made up for it by showing us the rest of the aircraft twice.

The nose actually reminded me of a 78.

It first flew on a Canadian registration, for obvious reasons.

The aircraft is doing regular 'proving' flights KATL - KDAB and multiple other airports with the callsign currently DL9964.

All four of the aircraft delivered to date seem to have performed only those DL99xx proving flights so far.

Is the first stretch done yet? With those wings and donks, it is obviously designed to be 'plugged up'.

Delta just changed their order from 75 to 90 with the last 50 being the 300 or stretch version.
