Atlanta, Georgia, U.S. - Atlanta-based major U.S. carrier Delta Air Lines has announced today that the company will retire its Boeing 777 fleet due to the lack of demand for air travel.

The airline also considers retiring its 777s alongside its MD-88s and MD-90s to operate a more streamlined fleet.

"We're making strategic, cost-effective changes to our fleet to respond to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic while also ensuring Delta is well-positioned for the recovery on the backside of the crisis,"

said Delta Chief Operating Officer Gil West.

Delta Air Lines currently has 8 Boeing 777-200ER and 10 777-200LR

Delta's more than 650 aircraft, including smaller regional jets have been grounded due to the ongoing global outbreak problem. Other US carriers are also taking similar measures to survive the crisis.

Boeing CEO David Calhoun has recently said that it was seeing a major US airline to go bankrupt. Calhoun did not give a name.
