Looks like there's about ten minutes left. The other four 732's are on their way to KVCV right now.

OKC-ATL as flight 910 appears to be the last DL 732 flight.

Long live the 732 and thanks for the many years of service!

I didn't know they were going to be retired so soon/quickly  frown  Up until a few weeks ago, they were a regular visitor at TPA, usually coming in from CVG. The DL 732 will be missed  crying 

There are currently four 732's on their way to Victorville...

And there goes yet another classic from Delta's fleet, joining the sides of previously retired 727s and L-1011s at VCV. Oh well, let's see the positive side, no more fuel guzzlers, less required maintenance, and a simplified fleet.

These birds will get another life in a Latin American or African carrier for their domestic operations. The spirit of the 732 lives on with the 737-700s WN flies every day and the 738s that DL now flies and the eventual 739s CO is adding to their fleet. The old cigar shaped P&W engines gave way to more modern and quieter GE versions, not to mention fuel efficiency being the least of their virtues comparatively speaking.

Almost got the chance to fly one of these birds during the Comair Christmas Computer Crash of 2004. Unfortunately, the plane was full (my bags enjoyed the ride tho!) and I ended up on a NW DC-9 instead.

What is the -200 being replaced with?

Mostly 738s, and what Mad Dogs DL continues to use. There are rumors that DL might place an order for some EMB-190/195s upon exit from Chapter 11 early next year to be an equipment airframe between the regional connection carriers and mainline, and it is specified in the re-negotiated pilot contract.

I doubt you will see any 190/195s at Delta. More likely they will take a few more 738s, add some 73Gs and a few used MD-88s. Beyond that, they will hold off on ordering any new narrowbody until Boeing is ready to jump in with their next offering.

Gee! How are all those DL pilots going to get out of VCV? Are they all going to get on a shuttle bus and head down to ONT to pick up a flight back to SLC to get back to their base(s)?

yep, they will be driven over to ONT, then deadhead back to their respective bases. I think Delta goes direct from ONT to ATL and CVG.

Which is why it is only a rumor. DL IS definitely getting some used AA/TWA ETOPs 752s that have been discussed on other threads however, and they do have some options and rolling options for more 738s which I'm certain they will firm-up as they prepare to depart Chapter 11 during 1st qtr 2007. Many of these current routes will be flown by CRJs until that time, probably on greater frequencies.
What routes do you think DL should upgrade to 738, MD-88 or MD-90 service when mainline a/c becomes available?
From SLC:
SLC-YYC: 2x 738 or MD-90 (remaining 2x can stay a CRJ-7)
SLC-YEG: 2x 738 or MD-90
SLC-YVR: 3x 738 or MD-90
SLC-SEA: 2x 738 or 752 (To replace current CRJ frequencies. SEA is the #5 O&D market from SLC)
SLC-PHX: All frequencies should be mainline
SLC-LAS: All frequencies should be mainline
SLC-LAX: All frequencies should be mainline
SLC-DEN: All frequencies should be mainline
The above are the 1-4 rankings for O&D from SLC.

I wonder if all of them have cockpit qualified on a 738 or a 752? I'll have to check the schedule, but DL likely does ATL and CVG 1x per day from ONT, but SLC has multiple flights naturally being the regional hub for them.
