Routes That Delta Use Their 73Gs On?

Good Afternoon,

As I understand it, Delta acquired the 737-700s for certain routes that required higher performance. I know they operate ATL-EYW, ATL-SXM, and ATL-MHTG. I'm just curious as to what other routes these birds tend to frequent?

They use them heavily out of SNA as well. Most SNA routes are 73Gs.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Delta will be using 1 of them for a seasonal 2nd daily frequency on ATL-GUA aswell. They sometimes use them for flights from ATL-JFK, but most are for international flying with a few domestic rotations.

Well, most of Delta's SNA-ATL flights are 73Gs, but they have added at least one 757 in the mix. The SNA-MSP/SLC flights are A320s and A319s.

Please note that the code for a 737-700 with winglets is 73W instead of 73G

They also operate them ATL-ANU/SMF/RDU/CHS and JFK-ANU.
I'm sure I have missed some. They used to operate it on ATL-Barbados, but they no longer appear to operate that route.

I changed my comment because I overlooked that EYW was mentioned in the initial post. However if the numbers I found are accurate, EYW would have some awesome takeoff/landings in a 73G. Their runway (I believe) is about 4800' compared to SNA's which is roughly 5100'. Here is a video I found of an EYW landing on a DL 73G. The pilot puts it down pretty fast.

EYW is 4801' compared to 5701' at SNA, not 5100'.

Great video. I bet the brakes were plenty hot ! Reminds me of landing @ BUR. Those brakes are amazing to stop a plane so quickly.

Are there any runways in the U.S. shorter than EYW with scheduled service by 737-sized aircraft?

operate ATL-EYW

I flew in and out of EYW a couple years ago on an ASA CR7 and even that was weight restricted to 60 passengers and even then we still used every single inch of that runway. I can't imagine what it would be like to fly on a 73G in and out of there. Is the 73G able to operate with a full load of passengers to EYW?

The size of the aircraft doesn't necessarily determine how much unway is needed for its operations. SDU is a popular airport, serviced by various aircraft types including the 73G and A319. Its longest runway is 4,300ft.

Didn't DL downgauge ATL-SNA-ATL flights to the 73W mainly because it's a much more easier a/c to operate out of there than the 757s? The 700 series have proven to be very popular @ SNA. When AS received them, they began using them much more out of SNA compared to other a/c in their fleet. CO used to use them nearly exclusively until they received 738s, and believe they mainly use those to IAH, while EWR is usually flown with the 700s as are their HNL/OGG flights. I believe if they flew HNL and OGG with a 738, they would have payload restrictions out of SNA.
I could see another important reason for DL to downgauge these flights to the 73W is yields since there's a big demand for flights out of SNA going east. They can definitely command higher fares with fewer seats compared to using 757s on all rotations.

Heck, I remember in 2006 when one of the flights was on a CR2. As to the 700, it's still restricted. Seats are blocked at 9F 53Y vs 9F 56Y. Have never seen them be able to send it out full with more than 50 bags on.

DL is up to 4x daily (3x 73W, 1x CR7) on ATL-EYW which is a HUGE upgrade from what it use to be just a couple years ago at 2x daily. There are no restrictions on passengers (seats are never blocked) but the payload margin is much thinner than other 73W routes.

They occasionally wind up on ATL-CMH. For a while, they would run the mid-Thursday afternoon flight on a 737-700 even though the other six days of the week would see it run using M88s or 738s.

Actually most SNA routes are A319's

SNA-MSP: 3x A319

SNA-ATL: 3x 73W 1x 319

SNA-SLC: 3x E75 2x 319

The 737-700 is one great performing airplane. It does not have much trouble going out of Key West even with full passengers since the fuel load is pretty low. The 737-700 has great range too for an aircraft of its size.

Anyone know of DL 737-700s have the short field package?
