I flew GSO-CVG back in 2004-2005 on mainline - started as an MD-88, went to a 737-200, then went RJ.

DTW 3

CVG 1
ATL 6
MCO 2

There are more, but that is all I can think of off the top of my head.

There is a guy on a.net that has all the routes from CVG from the past on a website. Within this site he shows what is mainline and what is regional.

In June of 2005, DL mainline had 139 flights out of CVG. I swear, if DL could have figured out how to put drop tanks on an RJ, they would have run those POS on the flights to Europe out of CVG.

I flew on my last ever Boeing 727 flight in March, 2001 out of CVG. It was DL399, CVG-MSY, in the Ron Allen colors.

CVG-MSY was mainline throughout the 90's and into the mid 00's. At one point or another just about every DL narrowbody flew the route....72S, 73S, D9S, M88, M90, and 757.

maybe the question should be international flights from CVG? I think DL used to fly to FRA.

Mine was on October of that year, CVG-ATL (my last 727 flight)

I flew many times on DL out of CVG to LAX on 767s and MD-11s. I also connected via CVG to SLC on a 757.

Wow just 5 years ago DL alone had almost 600 daily flights thru CVG. How times have changed! What is the hub at now, less than 300?

LGA/CVG on a DL 767 was quite common during the 1980s.

I used to fly the 738 between CVG and RIC all the time. The RIC-CVG flight left at 6 in the morning; in F a continental breakfast was served and "Just For Laughs" was played on the overhead screens. From CVG to RIC, an evening flight, a large salad would be served in F on the 738. I remember being disappointed there was no hot meal in either direction. At one point, I think Y even got those Sky Deli bags before the entering the plane.

I also got to fly CVG-HNL-CVG on the 764 back when CVG was just beginning to shrink and the 764 was the highlight of the day. I still remember coming in from warm and humid Honolulu into Covington airport, which was covered in foot deep snow. I remember we couldn't get home to RIC for a day because CVG ran out of de-icing fluids. This was Christmas of 04' I think.

I would guess the peak in mainline departures occurred shortly before the CRJ came online with Comair. Most of the EMB-120 flights were to smaller cities, while cities such as ABE, AVP saw mainline flights. Once the CRJs came online, those cities and many other comparable cities saw the downgrades.

25 CIDflyer : that would be correct, no widebody's except for Europe (AMS gets a 757). In fact I think the 738 is about the largest mainline equip used there these
26 AvConsultant : 2005 DL had 1 732 CVG-GRR-CVG
27 TJM321 : CMH still receives a 738 from CVG daily; this is even a downgrade from the 757's sent in until 2004. When I lived in Columbus, I enjoyed the pilot's j
28 Skibum9 : There are still a few 752 flights left. However I would not be surprised to see these downgraded to the 738 or MD88. I also think that eventually you

30 Jetskipper : SBN got DC-9 service and was eventually switched to 737-200 service until the almighty RJ took over...
31 OOer : With all the Comair flights being cut in CVG...it will also bring less connecting passenger to CVG. Therefore less mainline service will be needed. In
32 IH8B6 : A few others...maybe already mentioned maybe not..... SWF ABE MDT BTR
33 USAirALB : I couldn't find any 757 flights, except to AMS. Maybe when they end all European flights, they'll put a 777/764 to CDG. Why are they axing AMS, its a
34 AvConsultant : The CVG hub is becoming a focus city. Actually, a Regional Focus City given the mix between mainline and regionals.
35 MSYtristar : DL had a 737-200 routing SHV-JAN-CVG and vice versa. I almost took that one in 1997 while at Louisiana Tech.
36 United_Fan : I remember flying there in a 732,July 95. Then it was an L1011 to ZRH .
37 SWABrian : In 1993, Flight 994 was a L1011 between DFW and CVG. I flew N728DA on 11/25/93
38 Widget1580 : Yes! I remember this. SBN lost all mainline from DL Apr 1, 2000. They had 3 mainline a day to CVG, then cut to two, and then gone altogether. Now SBN

44 DLlaxPride : I was just in CVG over the weekend. It is a shell of it's former self. Concourse C is completely shutdown, there were zero mainline a/c at the airport
45 Rampguy : I always did think that was a joke. Why did DL do this and why are the still flying a mainline into CMH from CVG?
46 MAH4546 : To think it was only a year ago that people were arguing how important a role CVG would play, and how routes like CVG-FRA and LGW were obviously safe.
47 EMB170 : Yes, the state of Indiana got a great deal of mainline DL from CVG way back when... I remember at the end of B concourse in CVG and seeing the evening
48 Rampguy : I don't remember any mainline from CVG-FWA. I thought the only mainline for FWA was to ATL and a tag on to TOL.
49 DeltaRules : For some that don't remember (or never knew in the first place), DL often ran multiple 757s CVG-CMH back in the day. Fun route for the 757 as a passen
50 AvConsultant : Back in the day, that was as recent as 2005.
51 DeltaRules : I know, but I guess I consider anything where CVG had more than 70 mainline flights a day "back in the day". They still had a 738 CVG-CMH until this m
