I was driving into ORD today and I noticed that on boards coming into the airport that Delta Express was on there. Anyone know why? I remember Delta Express was a 737 experiment that flew in and out of Florida. Is Delta calling Delta Connection Delta Express now?

Quoting cokepopper (Reply 1): Delta Express did fly into ORD while in operation awhile back.
You are correct. Delta Express launched ORD-Florida in mid-2001, but the ORD DL Express routes were one of the first routes that were cut by DL after 9/11, concurrent with the initial phaseout of the 732.
ORD never received DL Express's successor, Song, though I thought I remembered that ORD was close to getting Song.
I don't work for FWA, their tenants, or their ad agency. But I still love FWA.
