MLB teams usually use a regular config 757, not one of the 75C. The 75C are actually not owned by DL. They are primarily used for the NBA contract. Good point. If you look at the Past Flight log for DL8883 on Flightaware, you will see it shows A321 as the aircraft they flew recently (in April) from...Jump to post
I had a question leading up to this. The Braves were in PHL last weekend and I never saw the charter # go from PHL to anywhere in New York on FA. Given that the cities are fairly close I wondered if the team charted buses? They probably took the train. The Nats take the train when they go to Philly...Jump to post
You don't see a flight like this everyday on Flightaware. This is a Delta flight that left JFK heading to LGA to take the Atlanta Braves back to ATL later today. DL 8883 is the flight number for the Atlanta Braves charter flights. Interesting flight pattern this short flight had. 14 minutes total fl...Jump to post
And don't forget the United States to Europe flights. The US airlines flying US to Europe, (TW,PA, UA,DL, etc), a couple of decades ago, had lots of tags, once the flights got to Europe. Even when Delta bought the Pan Am European routes in 1991, they started out with tags within Europe.. Again diffe...Jump to post
This had nothing to do with traffic back then. Tag flights were still very popular back then. Nothing more, nothing less. I lived in Ft. Lauderdale back then. Used Miami airport at times.

I imagine Richard Anderson was brought in for a purpose...and that was to orchestrate the DL/NW merger, and get it up and running.

The DL/NWmerger was a text book case on how to successfully do a merger. One of the best mergers in any industry.

I would argue that Delta's JFK Hub is how they capitalized on acquiring PA assets. It jump started significant European expansion out of JFK that we still see today. Before the PA asset acquisition, there was no JFK hub. The acquisition is what created and started the JFK hub. As stated above, Delt...Jump to post
Question...is LGW a slot controlled airport?

Anybody know what happened to former Delta employee, Mayor, who used to post on this board all the time. It looks like last October is the last he posted on any of the boards. I always enjoyed his perspectives, since he was a long time Delta employee.

Question, the Atlanta Braves, this past Sunday, recently flew from SFO, to SNA, to play in Anaheim on Delta.

Not sure if anybody remembers, but Varig, (from GRU-ATL) was the first airline to fly into Atlanta's 'new" Terminal E, back in 1995. Varig was code-sharing with Delta back then. Of course Delta wanted to be the first into terminal E, but Varig got the honors.Jump to post
Turn off the cameras, and not the first congressman would show up.
Don't forget, these are the same congressman, who also takes a ton of money (bribes) from these same airlines.
That's pretty incredible. Over 80 daily transatlantic departures from just the U.S. network carriers alone, not to mention all the flights operated by foreign airlines. That speaks to the undisputed primacy of NYC as the definitive U.S. gateway to Europe. Commavia, for the summer of 2017, Atlanta w...Jump to post

I lived in South Florida a few years back, and trust me, even if they had the only non-stops, I avoided Miami totally. No-way was I getting into that mess.

Well, if my math is correct, (and that can be debatable), with these new flights, Delta will have 163 flights this summer at Seattle.

A little correction to what I mentioned earlier. The routes that Delta proposed from MCO in the early 90's were not all to South America. There was one to South America, and two to Central America.

Delta "thought" about using MCO as their South American hub in the early 90's, (when MCO was kind of a real hub back then). In matter of fact, I have a timetable that shows three South American routes that were "going" to be started from MCO, but for whatever reason it never happ...Jump to post
