That's what makes the 738 so great. DL could not "fly" this route before the 738 because before the 738 they would most likely have to go with a 757 or larger, which might result in too much unsold space to justify the flight. I don't know if an MD88 type could fly all that way, but I also don't think that DL would put that type of plane on that type of route.
