Quoting Starstream707 (Thread starter): When the 732's were running there would be at least two or three mainline flights a day but now we are down to one MD-88.
A lot of border-market size (in DL's eyes) are going through this. There has been a hemorrhaging of mainline aircraft leaving the fleet with no entrants. The 732, 733, 762, and MD-11 have all left with zero entrants to the fleet.
DL's immediate strategy is to get E70 DCI service where possible.
Enjoy your MD-88 flight, I lost both of mine here!
Quoting Starstream707 (Thread starter): Are the CRJ's having to work a little more than normal across the system to make up for that lost capacity?

PVD is down to 1 M88 a day too - many once robust DL stations have been chopped down to practically nothing. I just hope that once more CR9's, E70, etc. come on line some of the CRJ's get bumped up to those...
