The A350 is a longhaul aircraft and not intended for such routes. We might see a few such flights for crew familiarization flights or at times where the plane would otherwise idle. Yet an A330 has been running ATL-PHX, a 777 on ATL-LAX, and both a 763ER and 764 on ATL-SAN consistently for the last ...Jump to post

Noticed that DL is using the code 738 in OAG again, but added several flights with the config of. F16Y138. Could these be the ex-GOL 738s, the 73A? Additionally, the A320 P2 mod is now in the schedule for some A320 flights This may have been covered and I just missed it. If DL is not doing a full m...Jump to post
Can't imagine that LIT will change a thing based on the last year's trend. They got STL added back but other than that, everything else seems to be stagnant. DL mainline has been steadily gaining share of traffic over the last 2-3 years and I imagine if they tried to invest in price, they could knoc...Jump to post
So how is it that the laws of breaking fares down to each component work for everything else but food?????? If prices do not go up does that mean that a food component was in the fares but the service not provided? I expect fares to rise, if they do not, it will mean that they have been playing loo...Jump to post
So that is where it would get fun. This list is (more or less) in order of the planes being completed. As you suspect, sorting them in numerical order would not always be helpful because many of these subfleets do in fact have gaps in their registrations. Some gaps are smaller and some are larger a...Jump to post
Thanks as always.

I got in late last night on a WN charter and the airport was a mess. There was an earlier charter still in the parking spot that hadn't been refueled to go back. So even though we landed on time, we had to sit and wait for 30-45 minutes while the airport got around to refueling the other 737.Jump to post
Thanks for posting as always!

XNA is also my home airport and I almost exclusively fly DL. Their website has jumped around a bit over the last few years as to what they refer to XNA as. Even their FA's, both regional and mainline, sometimes get confused on what to call it. For a while, and it may still, their online timetable ev...Jump to post
Nice report. Funny that you mentioned that omelets seem to be common breakfast foods for airlines...I had accidentally skipped over the text section prior to that picture in the report and instantly thought of Delta's version of the omelet. It looks extremely similar with the sausage links, fruit, a...Jump to post
N659DL is showing up on a trip from ATL-STT tomorrow on FR24. No other flights (past or future) are listed. Estimated mod completion date was last week. Is that one done? Perhaps her sister 660DL took that spot since coming back in from the desert to fly to SAL?Jump to post

Thanks for the update as always. :) DL ATL-XNA JUL 7>6 AUG 7>6 Not mad about this at all, seeing as how Delta's CRJ seems to disappear completely from XNA starting in June.

Are all the 767-300's (Non ER) retired yet? No, two of the non-ETOPs birds have flown very recently. 125DL flew three charter flights yesterday. 129DL has flown 3 regular revenue flights in the last few days (I say "regular" by the flight numbers being relatively low), one on Saturday, on...Jump to post

Look at CVG-XNA, which is being up-gauged to a CRJ-700 in May, XNA is not even serviced from DTW. My commentary on the above has nothing to do with the argument about CVG, only about that service comment to XNA. Don't know whether or not to hold my breath to see if that CR7 service comes true this ...Jump to post

Wow, the end of an era. The last ex-Song 75X is now a 75D!
More than 90 percent of our passengers already bring a device or screen with them when they fly.

In Saturday's schedule update DL moved the last XNA-ATL departure from around 6:30pm, to either 7:30 (March) or 8 (April), resulting in landing in Atlanta around 10:30. I checked several surrounding outstations' schedules (TUL, LIT, OKC), and they all have the ~6:30 departure still. In checking DL's...Jump to post

Not to nitpick, but DL has been running the 75Gs on some decent length trans-cons this week. N820DX is doing ATL routes to PDX and SAN today and tomorrow. 819DX is doing ATL-PDX tomorrow as well. While I wouldn't mind the lack of AVOD, no power at all would be disappointing. I know this week and las...Jump to post
I'd imagine a few ORD or DFW flights would be down-gauged to compensate. We'll see. If anything, the existing AA route that would likely take the most hit in terms of connecting traffic flows is CLT, not ORD or DFW. But given AA's strength at both ends of the XNA-DCA route, I'm not sure if this wil...Jump to post

I'd guess on any given day, flights here at XNA are roughly half CRJ or ER4 versus larger planes. While I personally wouldn't mind some reduction in frequency to upsize some of the equipment, I'm not sure how well that would jive with the heavy business traffic we have. I'm pretty loyal to DL and al...Jump to post
Does it make sense to even include the overhead lighting and air panel for the window seats that are positioned next to the windows? From the images in the release, doesn't look like they'd be affected much at all by either lighting or the air flow provided by the overhead panels.Jump to post
I flew on one back in 2002 on PIT-CDG. Even though that was ~10 years before they were gone, that particular plane was still pretty rough looking.

I want to say at the outset that I state this as a non-American, therefore my perception may be off. But... isn't Land's End a former Sears label? Therefore, it is a bit (read: a lot) downmarket?

I'm interested in the timeline as well. And also about booking options. I regularly book F tickets out of XNA and about 1/3 of our flights are on CR2s from here.
