In December 2017, Delta withdrew the last Boeing 747-400 from the commercial service. The jumbo jet aircraft have been gradually replaced by the modern and efficient Airbus A350-900.
Following the official withdrawal from commercial service, the Boeing 747-400 Delta Air Lines aircraft operated one last flight (DL 9771) to the Pinal Airpark, Arizona aircraft "cemetery." It took place on January 3, on the Atlanta-Marana, Arizona route.
