Hi anyone remember me? I was posting up until mid 2004 Anyway I'm back and have been browsing the site for a few days. I went today on DL 737-200 ROC-ATL and DL 767-400ER ATL-SLC after a 4-day stay in NY. I must saw that it was awesome to fly on a classic 737 once again and then try out a 764 for my first time. Anyway I have a useless question that bothered me a little. Back in 2004 Delta Airlines used the newer widget, but now it seems like they are using both the old and the new one. What is up with that?
Anyway I am excited to get back here. Whats new and what has been going on?

The "Limp Widget" which was a crappy personal stamp from the Leo Mullin days is slowly being replaced by the original and kick ass Widget. Grinstein and the current management crew actually listen to folks now and then and have made the change as show of goodwill towards the employees.
Glad you enjoyed the 732. I was on one the other night and will be on one this coming week. The 764 is a great plane as well.
Quoting AeroWesty (Reply 4): BTW, there's a thread in civ-av about the DL livery right now (who woulda thought, eh?), that answers your widget question.
There was one last week that covered the routes flown by the 732 as well.
