Simple Characters, Complex Character, Part II

The dealer has yet to tell me all bets on the table are frozen. What registration will ZA001 wear? I'm moving my money from N787BA to N787DL for VERY good reasons. DL, delta lima, also just happens to be Dreamliner.

N787EX is also taken by Boeing.
EX for experimental.

Just to throw some wood to the fire and deepen the mystery. Most of Delta Airlines registrations end in either DL or DA. Maybe Delta will be announcing a BIG order?

On the one hand it seems a bit of a silly way to do it. OTOH, I remember back in 1992(? - the mind grows dim) when I was working at a (then) Fortune 100 company a junior engineer went ahead and registered a bunch of these "domain name" things using his personal credit card. Caused a bit of a stir 2-3 years later when upper management finally caught up to this "Internet" business and demanded to know where their names were. Big black eye for Marketing!
