They are very nice on those mainline routes too. Legroom is great. Don't miss the lack of a first class cabin....don't fly it anyhow, and the back of the plane gets to the gate just about the same time as the front.

They're actually very nice...full leather seats, pleanty of pitch, and good meal service when they do it. They're a nice change from the usual cramped cloth coach seats. I'm not sure if they're going back to mainline config or what, I believe the -300's are now doing the shuttle work.

I;m tryingto fly FLL-ATL-GSO AVL-ATL-FLL and one of my options has me on a 732 and CRJ...as much as I'd like to try the 738, and I'd like for an equipment change, I'd like to try the 732 and CRJ, never flown on either of them!

Your're making a terrible mistake wanting to fly a CRJ!!! If it is a -200 series don't fly it. There is no pitch, period and the average person can put only half of his butt in the seat comfrotably. Try it if you're that curious but you've been forewarned.

I flew a 738 Shuttle config ATL-SAV and SAV-ATL earlier this year. DL was running until August 1 ATL-SMF on a 738 Shuttle config!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! I'm Platinum on DL and don't mind the single-class on short routes, but Atlanta to Sacramento is way too long for premium customers.

I must disagree with DSUAirptman. I love flying the 73S's. Mainly because, as a 100 seater, you are not waiting forever to get off the plane, and secondly because, if you are sitting over the wing or behind it, you get to watch those clam-shell thrust reverser's close upon landing. I love seeing them fold out and hearing the rush of air.
Other than those two reasons, a 73S is just like any other to me.
