Last night I was booking DTW-STL on DL for a trip in April. When the list of flights popped up showing aircraft type, DC-9-10/20 showed up. There were also flights that had DC-9-50 and DC-9-30/40 shown. I would assume that is some sort of error, but why would DC-9-10/20 even be loaded into the DL website as a possible aircraft type? I wish some DC-9-10s would be back on the line, I loved on flying those when NW still had them.

The DL site pops up all kinds of crazy aircraft types that aren't actually flying the flight. My favorite is a CRJ-200 flight I looked at that is listed as a CRJ-1000


Good goes around!

Does any DL regional carrier even fly a CRJ-1000? Do any plan to?

Nobody flies the CRJ-1000, as it has not entered service yet.

No DLC airline has ordered the type. Not sure they can because of the number of seats.

Didn't know that. I don't keep up with the regional jets too much. I like to focus my attention on the older stuff.

You won't see the CRJ1000 at Delta Connection unless the scope changes in the next pilots contract - and that'll happen most likely when pigs fly over the moon. 76 seats is the maximum capacity allowed under the DL pilots contract for planes operated by DL Connection carriers & I will add that there is also a max number of 76 seats allowed and Delta is at that ceiling.

So unless DL wants to get rid of some of the CR9's currently flying (or add more mainline jets to up the ratio of mainline vs 76 seaters) & DL wants to fly a CRJ100 with something like 24 first class seats & 52 coach seats...

They still have them. They are called the CRJ-900 now.

That already happened, The New Orleans Saints won the Superbowl.

I don't think that DL would order that small an aircraft as they seem to leave that type up to its connector airlines.

Not saying they do, but if they really wanted the aircraft, DL could order it and operate it as mainline. The same way B6 and AC operate the E-190.

they can't at DCI. I'm not even sure they could park CR9s for the 1000 because DALPA also has MTOW and I believe OEW scope.

This is true.
just a FYI, DL's contract has the E90,CR9 and 739ER rates already in it. (no E75,321 or CR1000 though)



yep.

But the DC-9-10 is way cooler and has regular sized overheads. Also back in the days of the -10 the plane was actualy operated by the company who's name was in the big letters on the side of the plane.
