Delta Airlines to buy more MD-90s

Delta Airlines has announced it will buy 9 McDonnell Douglas MD-90-30's from Japan Airlines (JAL) with deliveries scheduled to commence in 2012. The aircraft were originally delivered to Japan Air System (JAS) but were phased into JAL when the two carriers merged. The addition of these aircraft will bring Delta's MD-90-30 fleet up to 58 with 19 aircraft currently in operation. Delta Airlines became the launch customer for the type when Alaska Airlines cancelled it's order and went instead with the Boeing 737NG.
