Tomorrow, 6301 is flying SFO-ATL as DL2880. Inbound 19:23 lcl, position outbound to DTW 20:40 lcl.

Anyone know why? delta.com lists regular equipment as 76A. Thanks.

Aircraft flies inbound to SFO as DL634 from NRT. This is aircraft positioning for the fall season. 744 positioning on SEA-MSP on 9/1. Also 333 on JFK-MSP on 9/1.

What route is the 744 flying that it needs to reposition to ATL?

Nice video! What gate did it use at SFO? I bet it parked at terminal A after arrival from NRT, but where did it board pax for ATL? Did they keep it at A, or did they repo to DL's domestic concourse C?

Both delta.com and FlightAware have it departing from A9. Wonder if that threw a wrench into any unwary passengers.

If anyone was interested, it was N661US according to FlightAware, the prototype 747.

Woo!!! I was on that flight!!!  

Yes, it departed from gate A-9 in the international terminal. They had quite a few signs around in big bold lettering saying DELTA 2880 TO ATLANTA - PROCEED TO INTERNATIONAL TERMINAL GATE A-9. Even with those, it seemed there were a lot of people who didn't get the message. That and the security lines to A1-A12 were freakishly long. Took me about 35 minutes to get through security.

Got 74AB to myself on the top deck though, was an awesome flight!!
