Provenance In 1991, Delta acquired transatlantic routes; hub operations at New York-JFK and Frankfurt, Germany; and Shuttle from a bankrupt Pan Am and became a major provider of service across the Atlantic. The transaction included lease and purchase agreements for 45 aircraft, including 21 Airbus A310s from Pan Am—the first Airbus aircraft to join the Delta fleet: 7 Airbus A310-200 (3 owned, 4 leased) and 14 Airbus A310-300 (all leased, powered with Pratt & Whitney PW4152 engines).
