Last time I flew Delta from TPA to ATL, as we were boarding the plane, the FA comes on the PA and is "pleased to announce non-stop 767 jet service to Atlanta". When we landed, she announced that Delta was "pleased to be the first to welcome you to the Atlanta William Hartsfield International Worldport". I thought Pan Am at JFK was the Worldport! Whats up with those announcements??

Maybe they just got a little full of themselves. After all, DL did take over Pan Am's old Atlantic routes. Although ATL may be the busiest and biggest airport, the Worldport remains at JFK.

I believe I heard this as well after landing on a CO flight, IAH-ATL in July 99.

No, those are just usual dl cabin annauncements.
in other words they just want to express that they are
happy to operate the flight from A to B.
and afther the landing they are the first to welcome you at your destination.

regards DALelite

They loved to fly and it showed..

Delta currently markets its ATL hub as the Hartsfield-Atlanta International Worldport. The use is especially prevalent in press releases detailing service changes to/from ATL.

I guess they bought the trademark from the Pan Am estate.
