MSP-PIT I believe, or are those DC-9 30s? Or are they both? I know that they fly DC-9 aircraft on that route... I think that DTW and Memphis (to PIT) are run by Pinnacle or Meseba or whichever express carrier that they use on those routes...
Do not bring stranger girt into your room. The stranger girt is dangerous, it will hurt your life.

Years ago, NW made the decision to "consolidate" their small DC9-40 fleet into the DC9-30 inventory and both types use the D9S code - thus, the DC9-40 can show up on any route shown as operated by a D9S. Its not even a supply/demand thing or a seat inventory thing, as far as I know, the handful of extra seats on the DC9-40s are simply not sold or accounted for in the NW rez system.......the seats are used in the event of an overbooking or standbys, etc if a DC9-40 (instead of a DC9-30) happens to show up at the gate to operate a flight.

Don't always count on the DC-9-40 if your "scheduled" if the flight isnt full enough and they could use those 10 extra seats for someplace else NW will switch out DC-9's all the time, including -50's. No DC-9's are really sure bets on any routes.
