Hey everybody,
My father works for NW flying the DC-9 and told me a few days ago that he had heard rumors that Bill Anderson ( I think thats his name) is a big fan of the -9s and that he was looking into hiring pilots back on the -9s and bringing some of them out of the desert again. Any confirmation or info on this?

Thanks for the correction, I knew it didn't sound right. I could see the -9 doing short hops out of ATL that the -72s operate right now.

yes Dickie does have a thing from the 9. Word in the galley is 25 out by next summer, but what do I know, I'm just a stewardess. However I do know for a fact two 9s,(ex Eastern Birds) came out of the desert at the end of November beginning of December and are actively flying again.

We went from 1 a day to 2 a day in MSY from MEM and on Jan 9, all 3 MSY-MEM will be on the DC9!

If cheap fuels holds out, I'll bet they stay a while.

If you should be at DTW between flights and take a walk or tram ride you will notice that most of the model 30's in service are former Eastern planes. The Alitalia birds, N601NW -N626NW are gone as are most of the scare-West and NC planes....model 30's that is.You can tell the Eastern birds by the reg numbers N89__ __E.

It was considerable nicer than what Clint Eastwood called them in "The Gauntlet"....
and that was "Air Worst..."

Yeah I know. After all the care we went to in helping the film crew we all were ticked at that one. When your the only carrier in so many markets it gets dicey at times.

The hidden factor here is that fuel is much more reasonable right now. Who knows what the price will be in the Spring and Summer.

Not true. One Alitalia is left, N613NW.

And I know the majority of the -30s left are Eastern birds, but more and more EAL birds are coming out of the desert with the occasional Air West bird making it's way out. N9333 to name one.

Ok Mr. Delta.. then what are you going to do for the communities that a 100 seater is perfect for since now you will jump from 76 seats (CR9, E175) to 124 seats (73W, A319)?

Speaking of which, I know Delta also used to fly 30s.
I've flown their ATL-MGM-DFW route which was all 30s.  spin
