 DELTA SELECTS PRATT & WHITNEY PW4152 ENGINES TO POWER NEW A310S
 EAST HARTFORD, Conn., March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) will acquire nine new Airbus Industrie A310-300 wide-body aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney PW4152 engines. The order is for 18 firm, installed engines. Deliveries are scheduled for 1993.
 "Delta is one of our most valued customers, flying one of the largest Pratt & Whitney fleets in the industry, so this business is especially gratifying to us," Selwyn D. Berson, president of Pratt & Whitney's commercial engine business, said.
 The Atlanta-based airline flies Pratt-powered Boeing 767, 757, 737 and 727 aircraft and McDonnell Douglas MD-80s and DC-9s, and later this year will receive PW4000-powered MD-11s. Delta also is the world's largest operator of A310 aircraft.
 Since it entered commercial service in 1987, the PW4000 has been selected in the majority of airline engine competitions, making it the engine of choice for today's wide-body aircraft, including Airbus A300, A310 and A330 models, Boeing 747, 767 and 777s and McDonnell Douglas MD-11 transports. To date, more than 2,600 PW4000s are on firm and option order with 59 customers worldwide.
 Pratt & Whitney is a unit of United Technologies Corporation, (NYSE: UTX) based in Hartford, Conn.
