Hey All-

Just curious, I was watching my ACARS feed today and it seems that DL1531 DTW-ATL, which is usually operated by an MD-88 and shown as such in the schedules, was operated by N864DA today, one of DL's 777-200ER's. Just curious why the airplane was in DTW today and how it ended up there. To my knowledge, DL intends to, but hasn't started moving 77E's to DTW for the HKG and some other asian services, though I could be wrong.

Also, relatively new to the forums, decade-long lurker but first-time joining, so I'm looking forward to some good answers and discussion from this board!  Smile

I'm interested in how you get ACARS data for domestic flights. I have a web site where I can get the registration numbers of flights on North Atlantic routes, but not aware of how to do so for domestic flights. Thanks for any tips you can provide!

Looks like it may have been a sub for oversales, big jump but the flight left with more than a MD-88 capacity.


The only valid opinions are those based in facts

Has the DTW-PVG on the 777 started yet? It should be starting sometime soon.

Must have come in on 1524 from ATL last night.

On the way now with N865DA.

It was sent from ATL to DTW as DAL8818.

SPOTTERS picked up N865DA on 8818.

It will find many domestic flights but not all.

Yesterday, DTW MSP was on the A330-300 about 3 or 4 times for whatever reason...


Long Live Memphis!

This comes in from PVG, and goes out to ATL 3x/week.

I'm taking DL DTW-MAD next month, and my flight to ATL in on a 77L.

DTW-ATL: 777
ATL-MAD: 764

Can't do better than that!!

Hey thats pretty cool! Do you have a link for that?

BTW I am really glad to see B777s come back to DTW! I like to spot from my backyard approximately 30 miles north northeast of DTW where DTW traffic flies right over following the St. Clair 2 departure heading up to the PISTN intersection.

What day? I'm on the 777 for DTW-ATL in November as well when I go up to DTW for a weekend.
