At MSY, the honors go to Delta and their 763's to ATL. Sometimes they send in a 764 as a substitution...in fact I flew on a 764 from MSY to ATL in February as a replacement for a 763. Other than that, CO brings in 757's, UA has 757's on a seasonal basis, and Fed Ex has an A310 flight.

The largest aircraft SBN hosts are DC9-30s of US Airways and Northwest. FedEx sends in a 727 that's almost always parked. The largest airplane ever to come into SBN was the Continental MD-80 that made an emergency landing. Delta used to send in some 737-200s, but now they've been replaced by Comair CRJs. I think I saw a 767 once, but I might not have, as I was only 9 and didn't know too much about planes. I think it belonged to UPS. Does anyone know if UPS sends a 767 to SBN sometimes? I'm sure we could handle it as we have a 7099 ft. runway.

747s! Iberia, British (twice daily), Virgin, Air France (twice daily), Aerolineas Argentinas, Alitalia, Lufthansa. Occasional SwissAir jumbo too. 777s from BA, UA, Lauda, and AA. Soon Varig too! A340s from Air France and Turkish, on the occasion from Austrian, Air Canada, and Lufthansa. This excludes cargo. At FLL, it's the SAA 744 that comes in from CPT.

Well on a regular basis, the largest plane we get in SJT, is a Continental Express Emb-120ER, once in a blue moon we have gotten ATR-72's and a Emb-135. The largest plane to ever come into SJT was a C-5A Galaxy for an airshow.
Have a nice day! ,

I wish you people who lived in little obscure holes like I do would at least have the courtesy to type out the name of their airport (like I did) instead of assuming that we all know the callsign of your local airport.
Don't even get me started on the subject of those people who omit even the callsign so that the rest of us can guess which airport they're talking about.

At my hometown airport back home in Connecticut (BDL) we get on ocassion a AN-124 which is the largest. I have seen it 4-5 times this year, mostly transporting engine parts for P & W. As for sheduled planes now, Delta brings in their 763ER, 763, and 762 for daily service into ATL, and CVG. Cargo, a couple times a week, Atlas will bring in a 742 and UPS brings in many 763's daily, along with Fedex A310's an ocasional (maybe 2-3 a year) MD-11. Also, omini air cargo and world airways bring in DC-10's along with a couple other cargo carriers who bring in A300's. Quite a few cargos also bring in DC-8's. American, Delta, United, and US Airways all have shceduled 757 service and US Airways will ocassional subsitute a 767, along with United. BDL gets many diversions from JFK, BOS, and EWR so during a storm it wouldnt be uncommon to see 10-15 744's A340's and 777's parked there.
