No wonder the whole E terminal is covered with CRJ's. I never knew how many RJ's go in there and I am here on a weekly basis. Sure would be nice to see some more mainline flights in here, at least a 76 or something would be nice LOL

One error that I see on the 1992 skd..

The DFW-HNL trip was never flown in the 90s with the L-1011-500. It was always flown with an L-1011-200/250 series. And for those in the know, it was most often ship 724, the worst L-1011 ever built.

And some possible errors in the 1992 skd:

I don't think there were DFW-DTW trips at that time
DFW-FRA was still being operated. Now that was with an L-1011-500, but I think by 1992 it was downgraded to a 767-300ER

TheGov,

why was ship 724 the worst L1011 ever built???

And yes, in 1992 (up until it´s been axed) DFW-FRA-DFW was operated by the 767-300ER.

You are correct that there is a 1-stop L10 from HNL (via LAX).


I don't think there were DFW-DTW trips at that time

DTW-DFW

DFW-FRA was still being operated. Now that was with an L-1011-500, but I think by 1992 it was downgraded to a 767-300ER

I did not include overseas intl flights. However, a 1987 DL timetable indicateds a daily DFW-FRA on L-1011-250. It also shows L-1011-500 operating DFW-HNL.

Actually, MCO gets an MD-90, I think it is part of the continuation flight from SAN.

The Gov is correct about the L-1011 flights. It shows in the schedule as L15 but 724 was the only -250 and yes it was the worst ever. I was very happy to see it chopped in the desert.

The "L15" listing in the flight schedules were flights operated by both the -500 and -250 series aircraft. For instance, many flights from ATL to LGW were operted by a -250, but in the timetables, it was listed as "L15".

L1011Lover: Ship 724 was the dreaded ship from hell. If it managed to leave the gate on time, it was a very rare occurrence. According to what I can remember, it was being built by Lockheed as a -200 when, in mid-build, it was converted to a -250 series. I don't know what happened in the conversion process, but the aircraft was never "quite right". Most gate agents, myself included, hated to see that ship number come up on our preliminary paperwork. It was like it was forever jinxed. I think the other HNL ships were 735 and 736. They were the only -200/250 with F/Y class, no C class

Proudtoflyaa: Flights 16/17 were ATL-DFW-HNL trips. I often worked FLT 16 HNL-DFW-ATL. It arrived DFW at 5:10 am and left around 6:30 am. (I add this statement as it is possible that I am misunderstanding what you are saying about the LAX stop) And as for the DTW trips, I was a gate agent for DL in 1992 at DFW, and I just don't recall them. According to your source, they were obviously there, but I don't recall every working one. 1992 was probably the zenith of hub activity at DFW and man was it fun!

TheGov:

I'm sure with equipment swaps, and discrepancy between reality and the printed DL timetable we're both correct.

My reference to the LAX stop... there was an L1011 flight (non -500) that operated HNL-LAX-DFW.
