    Citing the ongoing economic impacts caused by the coronavirus, Delta Air Lines said Thursday that it is removing the Boeing 777 and other older, higher-maintenance jets from its fleet in order to slash costs.

    The move to retire the 18 wide-bodied 777 planes, considered a workhorse for the airline in its “ultra-long-haul markets,” will take place at the end of the year. It is also a signal Delta does not anticipate strong demand for international travel in the near future.
