I was looking at the ZRH live cam and noticed a Delta Airlines MD-11 parked at Terminal B about the middle on the inside side of the terminal. It was there at 9:50am local time. Is that now standard Equiptment? When I was recently therfe they were bringing in 2 767's a day one from JFK one from ATL.

Yes, until March 15th the MD-11 is the standard equipment on Delta´s flight 67 from ZRH to ATL leaving Switzerland at 10am! See also Pixair´s photos in the database!
Effective March 16th the 767 is replacing it!

When did the 767 get replaced with the MD-11 on the route.
Just recently they were still flying the two 767's in. I suppose the dropped the JFK route. Did they upgrade when the JFK route got dropped?

They just recently started using the MD11 on the route. Around January 10th or something. I wonder why they use it during this time of the year. Anyone knows ?

I believe the route was upgraded following the demise of SR...

Delta started the MD-11 service to Zurich on the second of january. The JFK service has been cut before and it won't be back in the summer, as it looks now.

Why does the caption in the picture say "always escorted by police"? When I flew into ZRH and out of it on a trip on Swissair from ATL-ZRH-ATH and then ATH-ZRH-ATL, I never once noticed a police escort. Is that a post 911 thing?

Were any other European routes upgraded. I ask because coming back from Dublin/Shannon after Christmas to EWR, Delta had one of their MD11's on stand in SHN beside us. I know the route has been using a B777 during the summer season, but only a B763 in winter, and I doubt it would have upgraded to an MD11 just for Chritmas, that would screw schedules up a bit wouldn't it???

Anybody knwo what is operating the route at the moment??

A whole bunch of transatlantic flights have recently been upgraded/switched to the M11s such as:
ATL-ZRH (started January 1, 2002)
JFK-CDG (started Nov 1, 2001)
ATL-CDG (started Nov 1, 2001)
ATL-AMS (can't remember when that started)
The reason supposedly has to do with pilot contracts and the hours they are guaranteed (according to someone I know at DL) because post-9/11, a whole slew of M11 routes were dropped (JFK-NRT, JFK-CAI-DXB, JFK-TLV, LAX-NRT, LAX-NGO) and DL had to redeploy those M11s....ATL-ZRH went M11 in January after one of the LAX-Japan flights were dropped...
