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!

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!

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.
