I don't know if this is common or not, but it looks like the scheduled 757-200 on AA844 was subbed for a 76' tonight.


Posted to let DTW people know, plus just wondering what might have caused a switch like that...

Could be a mechanical sub. DL has sent 763's to BNA before in place of their 752's.

the last time we had a domestic 767 was when DL sent the 762 here from ATL.

Wow a 762 from ORD-DTW. Wouldn't it be cost saving to use larger aircraft on highly dense city pairs like DTW-ORD? and DTW-MSP? I just feel that such cities could warrant larger planes on these runs.

American used 763's from ORD-DTW for quite a while after they were first delivered right along side DC10's.

While looking through a Feb 1989 Sched, I show AA had a 767 between DTW and DFW, flight 198 a morning trip
to DTW.
TWA had an afternoon 767 from DTW to STL in the mid 80's, on and off.

If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.

United flew 767-300s between ORD-DTW up until 9-11. The 763s replaced the daily UA DC-10 flight.

Delta 767-200s lasted until late summer 2002 - I flew DTW-ATL, and ATL-DTW on one in June 2002.

TWA never flew the 300 to DTW to my knowledge, but for a while in the mid 1980s they did bring the 200 in with the L1011s.

The AA 767-300s were only at DTW for a short period in the early 1990s. However back in the 1980s AA did regularly fly the 200s to DTW.

Maybe the 767-300 was in for a sports charter? Although baseball doesn't usually need a big plane like that, as football does. Frequently during the fall, football teams coming to Detroit to beat the Lions will use a 767-300. I know there were Delta 767s in a couple times last fall for football.

Don't forget KLM! KL flew 767s DTW-AMS in the summer of 1997. There is some great footage of this aircraft on Just Planes Videos' long-out of print DTW videotape.
