While traveling ATL to GSO today, I noticed a non-standard flight number for Delta's ATL/TLV route, DL9866. Does anyone have any information about this fight?

Thanks in advance.

Flights that ever pop up in the 8000's are usually charters and flights in the 9000's are usually added segments.

IIRC, ferry flights are also in the 9000s.

Maybe it also has to do with Delta no opting the sat JFK-TLV flight?

So when an airline flies an added segment such as this one, what are the load factors on the originating leg (ie the flt from ATL to TLV). I would assume that since the flight has been loaded only for a brief time, the load is quite low. Is this correct? Is it possible to determine the load factor for a specific fight?

The load factor would be low. Yes it is possible to determine load factor for a specific flight, number of passengers boarded divided by number of seats on plane (airlines have the exact load factor for every flight they operate - I believe the airports have this information as well as airlines must report passenger data and its not hard to get the seat counts of the airplane).

While the passenger load factor would be quite low or in some cases nil depending on how much lead time they have to schedule the op, I would assume they would scramble to load as much cargo as possible onto the plane.

No speculation needed. The first response answered the question.

And the load factor was about 80% going to TLV and 70% coming back. The only reason we add an extra section is if there's not enough routing on our airline or other airlines on regularly scheduled flights to get the pax there ASAP.
