"'Delta Air Lines Gets 500th Boeing 757 Jet'
SEATTLE - With the 10th anniversary of the first Boeing 757 delivery just a month away, the 500th 757 twin jet to roll off the assembly lines was delivered Friday to Delta Air Lines.
Delta now operates 79 Boeing 757s - more than any other airline in the world. It uses the 182-passenger planes throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. It will inaugurate service to Caracas, Venezuela; San Jose, Costa Rica; and Guatemala City from its Orlando, Fla., hub with the 757 on Feb. 1."
