For the last few days DL has been bringing the 777 for an afternoon flight into MCO from ATL....Is this short term just for the holidays??? or is something else going on?? oh the memories...

Looks like today was the last day of it. DAL0961 goes to 764ER tomorrow and looks like it stays that way for a while.
I'd say its due to the holidays, but thats a guess.

Probably due to a 764 going down for maint.

The 772 is actually a downgrade in number of seats if the 764 is a domestic configured bird.

764 - 287 pax
772 - 268 pax
77L or new 772 config - 276 pax

Damnit why wasn't this reported BEFORE they came? Oh well, at least BA still brings their 777 here.

Could also be that there has been a decrease in the number of international flts the past week due to the holidays and so there may be a 772 spare sitting in ATL.

IIRC, a DL 777 was a regular at MCO in the past, when did that end? Did it not replace the MD11 that was being sent there?

When was Delta bringing in the 777s this afternoon. I went spotting for Runway 17L approaches Saturday since DLH 464 came in during the daylight with the A340-600

Since they found better ways to utilize their T7s. Remember, for years Delta operated a rather tiny fleet of only 8 birds up until recently when they began aquisition of the LR. Before that, they began to redeploy their T7s and some where pulled from shorter TATL hops (CDG/FRA, etc).

I think it was around the end of 2005 we lost the DL 777? I flew on it one night to ATL with less than 30 pax on board. Great flight Big grin

10; 8 -200/ER and 2 -200/LR.

They will get another 6 777-200/LRs in the first six months of 2009.

Now all DL has to do is bring the 777 back to TPA and I'll be happy.  Smile

Wasn't aware of that either. I actually never saw the T7 in any other FL city other than MCO. However, I could be wong; I don't have first hand knowledge.

We used to, but I know that we still have the 763.

I think they showed up in TPA ocasionally. I DO remember seeing some, but I think they weren't really daily.

I used to love to non-rev on the T7's that went from ATL-JFK via MCO and catch another T7 from JFK-ATL via MCO. Those loads between MCO and JFK were sweet. Business Eliete all day long!
