ATL is not a tournament site, nor are any Georgia teams in the tournament.

They're sharing counter space with British Airways and they have their name and logo on several airport signs. Casino flights maybe?

Vision Airlines does casino junkets out of ATL to GPT and UTM. They sometimes go out of D11A.

Vision Airlines also has a maintenance contract with Delta TechOps, so it's always possible that a Vision Airlines a/c at ATL may be there for a maintenance visit before or after a casino charter (at least in the case of the 737s).

They also had a 767 at Delta Tech Ops when I was through there last Thursday night.

They are definitely running charters out of ATL now...they are listed on the baggage claim boards.

How big is the Vision Airlines fleet? I was in Miami and saw at least 3 737's one was an 800 the others 300s all headed to Cuba and other Latin America destinations with some Latin crews operating them and I see the 767s in Atlanta frequently, and they do seem to run charter ops out off D11a when FL isn't using it.

5 737s, 4 762s, and, apparently, a single Dash 8.

I too saw Vision Air 734's parked at the FBO near the Renaissance two weeks ago. Seems to be a fairly regular thing.
