Delta reveals that they now plan to keep their 717s all the way through 2030

Dear god I laughed so hard. Most aviation humor is just cringe and rides on good will from bored pilots but this is truly special LOL!
MX has access to a list of things that can be deferred, they might require a disposition from the manufacturer and a ferry permit, but some odd things can be signed off. One winglet missing on a G-IV? It'll be fine with a bit of aluminum tape. A two engine take-off in a Falcon 50? Alright, just make sure the captain didn't order the burrito. Challenger with a shattered windshield? Only if it's the copilots side and you completely cover it with special 3" speed tape.
