Can anyone please give me as much info as possible regarding Delta 727's? I'd like to catch one last ride in one of those before they are gone. I would be curious to know on what routes they are still flown and more specifically until when exaclty. The last one is expected to leave the fleet in 2003, I would say summer 2003 at the latest. I checked on Delta's website, the fleet updated on June 30th 2002 shows 34 B727 aircraft left.
I knew that the JFK-DFW-JFK flight was still a 727, according to www.delta.com that flight is a 727 until Sept 30th. As of Oct 1st, the aircraft is a 737-800 on that flight. That probably means, although I may be wrong, that Delta pulls its last 727 out of DFW on Sept 30th. I don't know if there are still any of them in SLC but I do know that the final 727 flight will arrive in ATL. I would like to know where that flight will come from and when. Any info about Delta 727's will be greatly appreciated.

Out of CVG there are only a few 727 routes left:
Here's the link to DL's pdf flight schedule....it lists every flight DL has. To find 727's....just look at the schedules out of DL's hubs. Unfortunately, this schedule is based on June 1, 2002, so it may be slightly out of date. A new one will come out for September 1.

Hey,Delta 1203 just roared over my house from r/w4 ! I love it,you can even hear them in the basement with the widows closed. Actually,that's the only plane DL puts into ROC.I was lucky to get switched to one 2 weeks ago after being switched from UA due to weather in IAD. What a ride! I even got to fly the connecting flight to GSO in the same plane! N519DL (mid-colors)
