The wikipedia article about Atlanta airport says that Delta has both mainline and Connection flights in Concourse D. However, when I was at ATL on June 1, I did not see any mainline aircraft in Concourse D. Does anyone know if there are still mainline Delta flights in Concourse D?

Delta mainline has basically left Concourse D - it seems like all of Comair, ASA's ATRs, some Chautauqua (not the ones using B19/B20) and some ASA RJs use D. I haven't seen a Delta mainline bird over on D since November - in my about 10-15 trips through ATL since then, it's been all Delta Connection.

They use one of the gates way out on the end, on the corner (like D33 or something like that) for occasional overflow. The jetways are usually rolled up against the walls, to allow for the little jets to pull up, as they deplane to the tarmac. I don't think they can reasonably pull anything bigger than an MD88/90, or a 737 in there, though.
