Yes, this is correct for ROC flight on CRJ-700 to ATL and MD-88 to ATL, too. It is on the timetable book for myself. They are improve need service for Rochester, NY flight get more passengers to chance fly out there, too. This is must to be get best on-time on Delta.

You'll still see Delta 757's into DFW....but only to ATL, MCO, and SLC as of April. I can possibly see LAX eventually getting one back and maybe LAS, since those routes have historically had very high load factors.

Looks like one of San Diego's 2 flights to DFW has been downgraded from an MD-90 to a MD-88, and the time changed so it departs approx. an hour earlier, at 11:45AM. Likewise, the 10:20AM flight to SLC has been downgraded from a MD-90 to a 737-300.
SAN still has three 767-300 flights; two to ATL in the morning, and one to CVG at approx. 11AM.

No they pulled the MD-11 off the DFW-ATL route last month. Im pissed I really wanted to fly it.
I remember the good ol days DL1264 DFW-ATL L1011 always took off on 17R around 8:30pm. I even took a 767-300 to PBI 767-200 to FLL 757 to MIA a long time ago. I wanted to try the 767-400, but not anymore. This just confirms my conclusion. DFW sucks.

You know, I would have imagined that the MD-90 would have been a good choice for DL to DEN all a long, especially during the summer. Its a much more powerful aircraft.
I guess its more important to fly it to short-runway noise-restricted airports first.
I haven't done much in the way of spotting since moving back here from DCA (Gravelly Point makes it a joy to do, and I could do some from my roof) but I might drive out there to see it. I've only seen an MD-90 once or twice.

The new schedule doesn't start til April 6th. No Widebody's even to ATL.
If anyone happens to visit DFW, checkout DCI's new ramp tower being built ontop of the new "SKYTrain" station on the south end of Terminal E.
With Delta mainline going to 12 mainline gates, Delta mainline should move there entire operation out to the satelite terminal (gates 22-30) and gates 33-38. Let DCI move to the main terminal gates 03, 07-32.

DFW is clearly where the big changes happened. Some markets lost a lot of capacity. DFW-DEN went from 3x mainline to 3 RJ's which is a huge drop in capacity. Other markets fared much better like DFW-JAN which went from 3x RJ to 4x RJ and 1x CR700. The biggest loser was probably TXK which lost all service to DFW and will no longer be in the DL network. DFW-ONT and DFW-DCA are being converted from mainline to CRJ700, I'm sure that will annoy some SkyMiles members who used to upgrade on those routes.
I'm pretty happy as PNS will be picking up a fourth flight to DFW, so for us it was a win.
: DL will begin running ATL-CVG with a 777 once a day. Jeremy
: FlyPNS1, DFW-DEN went from 3x mainline to 3 RJ's which is a huge drop in capacity. Actually it went to 4x RJ's which is still a big capacity drop. Jus
