I just flew in from ACA. There were two DL 763's at ACA today, and both left within 15-20 minutes of each other, at around 17:10 today. I suppose they were charter flights. Any ideas on what type of charter they were, or where they were heading to?

They were single entity charters.
DL9790 (Ship 1707) went ATL-ACA live and ferried back to ATL

DL9789 (Ship 1703) went SLC-ACA live and ferried back to ATL

They will be back.



It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

>They were single entity charters.<

Thanks a lot (though I don't understand what you mean by "single entity". Does that mean that both flights were chartered by the same entity, or that each flight was chartered by a single entity i.e., separate from each other).

Actually both were chartered by the same company, but it didn't have to be.
Single entity is just a designation regarding the security screening requirements of charter flights (can't go into details about it). Although these flights weren't treated any differently than a regular revenue flight because of the city pairs.

Thanks DeltaMIA.

It sure was a nice surprise to see two DL 767's at ACA at the same time (the only other aircraft there at that moment was a 6A 732)
