Delta Air Lines Shows Interest in Boeing '797' Jet

February 26 2018

Delta Air Lines wants to be one of the first customers for an anticipated Boeing Co mid-market jet, according to Bloomberg, in an early indication that the carrier is not harboring ill-will over a recent trade row with the planemaker.

Delta Air Lines is reportedly interested in being one of Boeing’s first customers for the “797” – a new midsize aircraft with an all-composite fuselage. The 797 jet, which made waves at last year’s Paris Air Show, could fill a gap between Boeing’s single-aisle 737 workhorse and its advanced long-range 787.

Citing a posting on Delta's internal website, Bloomberg reported that Delta's Chief Executive Ed Bastian plans to "participate in Boeing's middle-of-the-market campaign."
