That's awesome. I saw a United 777 parked parallel to Runway 36 on 09/11. It dwarfed the terminal.

Hope there are some pictures!

Certainly a rare sight at the home-town airport, thanks for the pic.

So where did they park the big beast, near the old air freight buildings on the east side of the main ramp??

Southwest side over past the FedEx/UPS cargo building. It was on the new cargo ramp they built by the steel mill.

I think the ground work there is handled by DGS and the only CO flights they have are COEx. I doubt they have any equipment there that can handle a T7. DL uses BHM as a diversion airport and therefore has equipment capable of handling larger a/c. That may be a reason as well why DL did the ground work.

They were helping with the offload of their equipment in the front bin. LOL! It does look cool with all the red sweatsuits in the shot though.

Regardless, they supplied equipment to get people off the plane and their luggage/baggage off as well. Whether it's against policy or not isn't the issue here so there's no real point to your post respectfully.

This type of assistance happens everyday in every major city in the US. Especially where DGS is a presence.

But FWIW, CO is still a SkyTeam member and thus could receive some sort of assistance from DL if the need was there for it.

Nice pic...

Continental promotes the cleanliness of their birds...
You have to admire their ability to keep the exteriors clean as well.
That T7 looks factory fresh!

Thanks, I made not of that in one of the picture descriptions. I was shocked at how clean it was! Especially during a week where the weather was as bad as it was for most airports in the northeast.
