N365NW is one of Delta Cargo’s older aircraft, as it was originally operated by Northwest Airlines and Northwest Cargo. It was part of a small fleet of Airbus A320P2F aircraft developed for NWA Cargo. These operated trunk freight routes to and from Northwest’s major hubs, including MSP, DTW, and NWA Cargo’s hub, ANC. After NWA Cargo was dissolved, the aircraft was leased to other operators, before it was added to the then-new Delta Cargo subsidiary.

There is an A320P2F, it just isn’t operated by Delta Cargo, which doesn’t have its own planes.
