Delta has long been the US airline that flies the wings off its aircraft - they do not chase the new models at entry into service.
The A321 has not proven itself as the ideal replacement for the 757 at Delta. It is close and the A321neo will bring it closer. Even so, Delta might need something larger. As we move to ever more sustainable aviation, a larger aircraft is probably greener per passenger, than a smaller one. Will Boeing step up to this opportunity?
