Was just looking through the DL downloadable timetable, and I was surprised to see some huge flight increases around the first weekend in September, especially to DTW and ATL. Is there some massive convention going on that weekend, or what?

DFW-DTW

6:00 763
7:30 753
9:10 M90
10:45 757
13:00 753
14:00 763
15:15 753

DFW-ATL

5:45 757
8:15 763
11:00 763
12:15 M88
13:30 763
14:45 763
16:00 763
17:15 M90

That's 3 753s and 7 763s in one day!!!

Sure is nice to have the fleet flexibility to accommodate demand such as this.

Huge game... Michigan vs. Alabama. I know a lot of friends who are going. I'm a Buckeye myself, so I sure won't be on that plane

Ahh, thanks. That explains it. I was wondering why there was such a huge bump in capacity from DTW and ATL, but not from the other hubs... This totally makes sense.

Multiple DL 763 and 753 flights in DFW wows me. Sounds like a Delta reunion. Should be a really fun day for DFW spotters.

Absolutely! Brings back fond memories of the DFW DL hub, with 767s, L1011s, even the odd MD11 (when they had them) gracing the tarmac.

Well, those 753s are ex-NWA birds that never frequented DFW back in the day, but certainly will be fun to see nevertheless. Almost wish I were in D-Town that weekend to spot for nostalgia's sake.

A bit off topic, but is AA doing swapping for larger aircraft, or adding extra flights into DFW that weekend? I could see extra seats out of DTW, as well as Birmingham, Huntsville, and Mobile.

AA has not added any additional capacity on these routes. I wouldn't expect AA to add anything on DTW-DFW, DL historically has added capacity to for bowl games for the University of Michigan.

DL is adding special schedules on BHM-DFW and HSV-DFW for the game, see below:

For those wondering about the schedule increases:

DTW-DFW:
Mon 8/27: 6x; (1x CR7, 1x CR9, 1x E75, 3x M88)
