Delta has so many flights out to most places, it could be an efficient delivery mechanism to a plane in need
60% of Delta's fleet is made up of Boeing's aircraft, and apparently the decision to go with Airbus was "a close call."

Airbus is selling their planes at a ridiculous discount that Boeing doesn't want to compete with, and frankly probably can't compete with now because of the 737 Max fiasco. I haven't seen anything to suggest their relationship is all that sour, although I will say many end customers and suppliers aren't all that thrilled about Boeing trying to scale up their spare parts and overhaul business, thus giving them the ability to price gouge for repairs and also squeeze their suppliers for bigger discounts. That's part of the reason why we're also witnessing all of the consolidation happening right now in the Defense Contracting industry.

The decision to select Atlanta for a distribution center likely boils down to the fact that it's in relatively close proximity to their main assembly plant in Spartanburg and also to more efficiently service Delta's existing Boeing fleet.

Maybe he thinks you are sharing internal/confidential information publicly?

DeltaTechOps actually services a ton of other airlines. It's a huge MRO and having Boeing warehouse and assembly center close at hand makes total sense.
