Why does Delta still use their 737-200s for mainline Delta service? What destinations are served with these?

I think all the 737-200 are with Delta Express not mainline.

DL does not operate any 737-200's on mainline service.

I thought they didn't either until I saw on their website that they do. I thought they retired them but I guess not.

I don't know for sure that DL mainline operates 732s post-9/11, but I know that as late as May 2001, 732s were operating on the mainline... I was on a 732 flight from SAT-DFW.

All 737-200s were converted to all coach layouts for Express. About half the fleet was parked in Nov. They are in storage not retired. Could they be used on mainline routes? Yes, sometimes Express and Shuttle aircraft are used for mainline.

When did the 732 conversion to all-coach occur? Again, as of 5/01, the 732 trip I took had a First Class section...

If I remember right, the last mainline 732 flights were in September/October of 2001. So, Flashmeister, it is quite possible that your 732 still was in mainline config.

The DL 737-200s were built circa 1985 and had the latest upgrades such as interior, etc. which matched the level of the 757 and 737-300, which were new at the time. They have much less time on them than the average UA 737-200, for example, and the cabins are alot less dingy looking. I always liked them on mainline and thought DL did a good job outfitting them. This was in the days of the two-class ships, and I'm sure DLExpress isn't as nice, but they have a few years on 'em before they can be considered junk jets.
