I spotted ship N917DN at the Delta TOC in ATL today...TOC-II Bay 6/7. According to the Delta Digest company magazine that came out last week, the ships are to have in-seat AVOD. Guess we'll know soon....

It looks like SLC-CVG is the launch route for these aircraft, starting this Friday, followed by SLC-GEG this Saturday.

No, that must be N918DH, N917DN has been in ATL a couple days. I will see tomorrow.

Interestingly, DL has reserved registrations up to N960DN, exceptions being N918DH, N922DX, and N926DH. I wonder where will DL get all these MD-90s.

Currently it is scheduled to be the old configuration. The new configuration has four rows of F seats, while the old configuration has three.

The initial routing for the new configuration is GEG-SLC-CVG and back. This was scheduled to start on June 15, but the aircraft is running a few days late and it has been pushed back a couple times. Currently, the seat maps are showing the new configuration on SLC-CVG starting Saturday, June 19.

As of this morning, 9218 is in paint Bay 11 to get a DL spray....it came in with the ex-Hello hybrid paint. I couldn't get pics...sorry. 9217 is in Bay 7 getting attention.

The bins that are on the existing M88s or the new bins that are due to come out in the new M88 config? Either way it's better than what they have now!

Just out of curiosity, how was that determined? Wonder why it didn't go on a high yield route, like ATL-DCA.

because ATL-DCA doesn't have an M90 on it? Plus DL is slowly making ATL-DCA all 757/320/737



yep.

There are hundreds of high yield markets. And each aircraft type in the network is optimized for the best returns on specific routes. Delta gets better economics running a MD-90 on longer haul routes out of SLC and shorter spoke routes like GEG. And by the way, you'd be surprised at the yields on GEG routes. Not the very best - but far better than you'd guess.

More so when a "new" airplane already feels like a cattle cart even before it's first flight! I'm 6'3" and I honestly hope I don't ever have to fly on one of those! (well, not never, I'm an enthusiast so I suppose I could do a flight or two   )

Out of curiosity, what route did you fly on today? Another post in this thread actually states it was supposed to enter service tomorrow. I know it was originally supposed to be on June 15, then pushed back to today, and then to tomorrow. Were there any overhead monitors on your flight?

That's very disappointing. On the routes the MD-90 is flying right now, they should have PTVs like most of the medium-haul mainline fleet.

Interestingly, looking at DL's schedules, the new configuration isn't showing up until Monday now. I tried to look up DL Flight 2186 (GEG-SLC-CVG) on ACARS, however, it doesn't appear to pull up anything.

25 KingAir200 : Tight pitch? It'd certainly be nice, but I guess they're not much different than a 319/320 or 75N at this point.

33 trijetsrmissed : I would imagine plans to keep the -40s in the fleet will be on an incremental basis, if anything. Still glad to hear they'll get another six months.

62 DL_Mech : Is it possible he boarded the a/c at the TOC?
63 tristarcrazy : yea, that's probably the case. he didn't say he "flew" on it.
64 tristarcrazy : 9219=N918DH. I just saw it in Bay 11 at ATL TOC with fresh spray and surprised at the reg. Should make things good and confusing. Also a 5500 series
65 timf : Does that mean N919DN will be 9218 or will they all just be off by one number? It seems completely illogical. Perhaps someone used the wrong stencil?
