Hey all,

Simple question. Just wondering where DL sends the 73G's. I'm not looking for random (or frequent) flights it has operated on sub, just on a scheduled basis.

Thanks in advance.

Looks like SNA - ATL is a regular route from Flightaware.com

If you go to the Delta pdf timetable available on their web site, you can do a search on "73W" and this will show you all the routes the type is used on.

I know SNA-ATL has all 737-700 jets on this route (at least for the time i'm looking at)

The Atlanta-Bermuda-Atlanta flight DL656/7 keeps alternating between the 737 and 738.

Get a few per week to MSY from ATL, one scheduled this evening on DAL1293 and back on DAL1756, and it is one sharp looking aircraft.

I think I heard the EYW mainline flights would be on 737-700's.

Yes Key West will be operated with the -700

Probably the best place to find them is the cities in which their performance is needed: SNA, SXM, and TGU. The whole schedule, by necessity, revolves around the places they must go.

ATL-ANU sees the 73W. JFK sees the 738.

Most of the destinations for the 73G will be places that are hot and high and/or have shorter runways, since that is the main reason that DL bought them in the first place. I also think that MDW had 73G service too, but I can't find them now.

Its a welcome sight at IAH. I would love for us to get a 757 or MD90 back though.

The 73G would be a great a/c for DL to operate thinner transcons that were previously operated with 73Hs. LAX-BDL/CMH/RSW. It would also be a great a/c if DL chose to start flying BUR-ATL ever again.

Would it? The trip costs aren't much different from the 738, and the 738 has the legs for all of those.

The point of the 73G for Delta is to be able to operate routes that require a higher performance airplane. DL has their 73Gs configured as hot rods so that they can get out of short runway airports. It's got great hot/high performance. It's better than a 757. With that comes sacrifices with efficiency, so long haul transcons does not make sense with them. Leave them to operate out of airports like Orange County and Key West.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Thanks RoseFlyer. That makes perfect sense. They could always re-start the transcons I mentioned with the NW 319s. This seems a better fit for those routes rather than the larger 73Hs & 320s.

They were ordered to fly to hot & high places in Central America & South America. They weren't initially ordered to fly ATL-PDX/MEM/DTW. Apparently many of those international routes have fizzled.

As an Elite I would want to avoid the 73W since Delta only fitted it with 12 First Class seats versus 16 on the -800 and 16 on NWA's comparable sized 319.

Well - not necessarily, they gotta get utilization out of the birds as well. So they can do a domestic run before heading to the jungle and beach.

26 BMI727 : How many of these routes are just for utilization versus a repositioning flight?
27 Cubsrule : ATL-JAX is a pretty common run for the ex-TW 752s.
