Just noticed today that the Shuttle America/DL Connection E70 has made its debut in scheduled service in ATL. Flying as DL 6454, it is the 4:08p departure to JFK. And even though I expected C or D Concourse to be its assigned area, it is parking on B Concourse. Freedom ERJ's have also began parking on A or B Concourse as well, as compared to C. Good to see the well-liked E70 make her debut with us in ATL.

Yup was about time, our all hope is that the E-Jets will replace the CR7s on the Caribbean routes asap Big grin .
Didn't know they are using Concourse A now as well. It was known that Chautauqua would be operating from B19/20 (and 18 appearantly as well as seen on a recent pic), due to those gates being too narrow for mainline, but Concourse A is a surprise. I suppose they will be using the gates close to the central area as well?

The E70's have been serving ATL since June. Routes include ATL-MDW, ATL-SAT, ATL-JFK and ATL-TYS.

While I like the EMB170's, seeing RJ's slowly takeover mainline gates in A and B is not so exciting.

I wasn't exactly sure of the gates for CHQ, so it is B-19 and 20. The E70 is also being operated out of a narrowbody B gate. I do hope to see more arrive. Neat looking little birds, if I do say so myself.

Well, as said, those gates in B that CHQ operates out of can't be used for mainline planes, not even 732s, and have been pretty much unused ever since DL retired the 727s. Personally, I'd rather have Embraers at those gates than see them not being used at all  Wink . Allows DL to add quite a few additional flights at ATL.

I hope you're not thinking today is the first E70 to ATL...I flew MDW-ATL back on the 13th on a Shuttle America E170.

Fantastic airplane, BTW...it was my first time on one and I think it's my new favorite shorthaul airplane. Takes off and climbs like a rocket, big windows at the proper eye level, and the little 6-seat F cabin is great - the seats in the second row have tons of recline (all the way back into the mesh net that separates F and Y  biggrin  ). Only disappointment was that I wanted to try the mojito and they don't have it on Connection carriers.  hissyfit   Wink I won't miss the 732 if the replacement is mainline E190s or 195s.  bigthumbsup

Yup, just noticed it today while passing through on a 757 and decided to find out when I got off the plane. Can't believe I never noticed any before or heard anything of them.

In either case, I'm sure most a.netters were also not aware of the newest addition to ATL.

That's the truth, the one thing that irritates me with the CRJ. Even the ERJ has a large window

I saw the 170 in Atlanta in June and wondered why no one mentioned this. It's weird seeing someone other than EV or OH not being the darling in offering new DL service. I'm sure some group in DL will be a little upset seeing a DCI aircraft on A or B.

They are also serving MEM from ATL with the E70. I am flying on it tomorrow morning at 9am.

Flew it once before from SLC to DFW, great plane.

Also, saw this morning where Embraer got 30 more firm orders from Republic.

S5 and RP are using gates B16 (not very often), B17 (145, mostly 170 now), B18 (170), B19 (145 - no jetway access), B20 (145 mostly). I used B19 twice today. It's still just the B concourse, nothing on A, and Freedom is over at C.

Except B-16, which I see as a waste for any non-mainline plane, makes sense to have those gates used for RJs, as they are all somewhat limited due to the Concourse's central hall.

Since when has Freedom been operating from ATL?

I think about a month or two now, not a large operation

B16 is just used as an overflow if the other gates are used or there is a delayed aircraft there. I think Delta also realizes that it is a mainline gate. There was also an E70 at B15 today too, possibly for the same reason. With the transfer of E70 flying from SLC to ATL, I expect that many more of the "mainline" gates will have the E70 utilizing them.

Why is that? How could 727s have used those gates but not 737s?

Expect to see even more of them when the September schedule change goes into effect. Word is that most, if not all of Shuttle America's E70 flying for Delta Connection will shift from SLC to ATL.

The 727 had wings which were angled way more than the 737 series, plus the fact that it had its engines on the tail, so there was no need for engine safety zones in front of the wing, which of course take away quite a bit of valuable space at those gates.

What would the replacements be, CR7s *shudders*? Also, some routes would require an upgrade to mainline, as I believe some routes, e.g. CLE or MZT are out of the range of the E-Jets.

Dream on. Comair couldn't make HVN work with 40-seaters, how should S5 be able to do it with a 70-seater? With a First Class as well. Waste of resources.

The new Skywest CRJ-900 series airplanes will be taking a number of the routes, and the rest will be mainline replacements. Off the top of my head, I think CLE, DTW and probably ORD will have mostly MD-90 service (I suspect slightly reduced).

You got it. CLE and DTW were reduced to 1x daily service to SLC with the E70s, then mainline (MD-90s) quickly replaced the Embraer in both markets. The fall schedule has several routes, such as SLC-BNA, flying with Skywest's CRJ-705s in place of Shuttle's EMB-170s, while other routes, like SLC-IND/CMH have been reduced to 1x daily service with the E70. Not sure whether those two routes will see mainline or Skywest, since both are major Shuttle maintenance and crew bases.
