The MX problem aside, I frequently see AA M80s and 738s parked over by the Rennansance hotel. Why is this. Does AA do overnight MX at ATL?

They park several of their RON jets over on the north side. AA has 7 mainline and 1 Connection plane overnight in ATL and only have 5 gates, so three planes need to be parked elsewhere for the night.

CO and UA often use parking spaces around Concourse E to overnight their RON planes that can't be held at their own gates due to overflow.

I thought they only had four gates- T9, T10, T11, and T12...did they get one more?



Can passenger jets fly as fast as my feet do? Let's find out...

many aircraft overnight at out stations. Apart from the fact that the whole fleet wouldn't fit in DFW, MIA and ORD, often the last flight of the day is to an outstation, bringing the pax which arrived from long haul flights to the hubs, or passengers who had business elsewhere back home to ATL. Same with the first flight in the morning.


nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

But Ive seen aircraft parked as late as 11am...do they have a late originator in ATL?

Yes. There are no pilots based at ATL so the last inbound crew can't leave until their minimum rest requirements have been met. Just a matter of balancing crew scheduling requirements with marketing demand requests.

Just for jollies, here are the 7 mainline RONs

374 2040 MIA 738
848 2055 DFW M80
1297 2150 LGA M80
1807 2155 ORD M80
1332 2250 DFW M80
1942 2355 MIA 738
2020 0035 DFW M80

...and the 7 originators

1721 0600 MIA 738
1142 0620 LGA M80
1695 0635 DFW M80
1067 0740 ORD M80
450 0800 DFW M80
561 0840 MIA 738
1397 0845 DFW M80

So no, there isn't a late originator. However, AA does do pretty well at ATL considering the competitive environment.

I've seen them as well - even later than 11am.
