on Thursday I will travel on AirTran from LGA via ATL to HOU. The flight leaves at around 4PM in LGA and directly connects in ATL. I was just curious to know if these two sectors are normally flown by the 717 or the DC-9? Best possible option would of course be one sector on each of them...

and thanks for the quick replies!
Well... have never flown on the 717 so far, so I guess it will be quite nice, even though I love the old DC-9...
@ Patrick : Fun? This is a business trip, however I managed to save the company some $$$ by booking on some more interesting carriers/aircraft than the usual UA 737-500 / CO 737-800 etc.... I intend to get the A318 and 737-900 as well enroute. So I would call this a win-win situation

Correct, all 717s. We currently only have 3 DC-9s in the fleet, 936, 948 and 949, so it'd be a very slight chance you'd see any of them. I'm pretty sure the only scheduled DC-9 flight is flight 937 to JAX and its return 1796.

Oh, I thought you are flying to the USA for holidays. Anyway, it is nice that you get some interesting planes during your trip, I envy you for the 717 and especially for the 739 which is a really rare plane.

I noticed the post and decided to take a look and see the routings of our DC-9's for today. There are only two flying DC-9's left and neither are operating regular scheduled service. Gaddy...937/1796 is a 717 now.

I wondered what the a/c swap on ATL-TLH was this morning. I was over at the shop @ D-6 (I've been moved over to D) when I heard the agent ask for those with seat assignments in rows 5-9 to please come to the desk for new seat assignments. I thought maybe they subbed a 717 for the CRJ, but now I know what the swap was.
