> Delta does seem to have some problems with MD 90 dispatch reliability.

My brother-in-law is a propulsion engineer with Delta and confirmed the
MD-90 dispatch problems.  In fact, I guess Delta has done some pretty
heavy complaining to MDD.  I have not seen any articles about the MD-90's
problems in AvWeek, so your post and his comments were a surprise to me.
He indicated that the problems seem to be more than just "teething"
problems.  He also confirmed that the V2500 has some significant trouble
with the scavenge oil system.
