I fly Delta between Atlanta and Orlando at least month, so I normally would not write a trip report for it. However, I want to make a photo trip report to my flights to Asia on Saturday, so I decided to make a test report with my trip down to Florida this week.

July 27, 2004

I took the MARTA train to the ATL, and, as I had already checked-in online, I went straight through security. Given that I had two-hours to spare, I took the tram to Concourse E, where international flights leave, to have a light lunch.




The food court in Concourse E. I recommend the French-style bistro.







After lunch, I took a few photos. For example, this is LH's daily A343 to AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA.







This is DL's 738 to PTY.





An Independence Air CRJ taxis by...







...Followed by a Frontier A319.







At 16:45, I took the tram back to Concourse A for my flight to MCO.




Delta
Flight 1483
Boeing 767-300
17:33 - 19:00
(17:33 - 19:25 due to heavy traffic)
25F




We departed from Gate A19, which, like the rest of Concourse A, is under construction.







The agents called for boarding at 17:00, and I boarded in Zone 5 around 17:15.




Here is a photo from my seat.





As I began to take another photo, my steamate began to look at my suspiciously, so I explained that I was taking pictures for a trip report. Then she mentioned that she had heard that terrorists might try to take photos aboard aircraft. I decided to put my camera away at that point.

We pushed back on time at 17:33, and then sat on the ramp for 35 minutes. Neither the captain nor crew made any effort to explain the delay. However, at 18:10, the captain announced that everyone should sit down as we would begin to taxi. At 18:20 we took for to the west and made the typical left turn to the south. We immediately entered the afternoon Georgia thunderstorms, so the seatbelt sign remained on for the first 35 minutes of the flight. The crew only had time to distribute water bottles in the main cabin before we began to descend into MCO. We landed to the south at 19:15, and taxied to Gate 71.

What a waste you couldn't continue taking photos. Would have loved to see the rest of your flight. That man on the left side of your final picture doesn't seem all too enthusiastic about having his photo taken!

I flew ATL-MCO on a 764 and they gave us pretzels, with beverage service. That's odd that you only got water. I love ATL though, awesome pictures.

Nice photos. Only thing I would of done different is basically told the guy to mind his own business and continued taking photos. The MCO-ATL/ATL-MCO Route is my most commonly flown route and I always enjoy it.

The crew had less than 10 minutes to do the service, so they only served water bottles from the boxes themselves. On the return leg yesterday, we had pretzels and a choice of Coke, Diet Coke, O.J. and water.

Is Delta, the only airline that flies widebodies to MCO? It seems odd how almost every airlines uses single aisle planes, but Delta is putting 777's and 767 on these routes. Is demand from ATL-MCO that big?

Great report and pics. It just depends on the number of crew they have deployed for the beverage service of course weather permitting. I fly ATL-TPA several times a year and so does my partner and always on the 767. Sometimes you get full beverage and sometimes you get fastbreak.  Big grin

Nice report!

I flew out of MCO on the same day you flew in (July 27th). I took a Sun Country 737-800 to MSP. When we left I saw a Delta 767 from ATL arrive, but then I read your flight time and you arrived 2 hours after I already landed in MSP!

DL is not the only airline to bring widebodies to CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO. CO brings 767s into CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO and AA also brings a few widebodies once in a while as far as domestic service goes. The ATL-CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO and CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO-ATL is the mouse route. Thousands of tourists every day. It's unbelievable how many people use this route each and every day. Ask Justin Cederholm (Dazed767). He had to fly home last sunday on standby on the ATL-CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO route and after trying to get on 3-4 flights, he still had no luck due to the overwhelming demand on this route. He ended up having to get home through PBI and then connection on DL connection to CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO. It's crazy!

If you're referring to IAH-MCO on the 764, I believe that isn't running that route anymore, or atleast the last time I checked.

I was interested on how A looks now! I'll tell ya, first time visitors to ATL must be thinking "They sent me to a warehouse!" You don't realize how much a ceiling helps until its gone!

I know! It looks horrible, and it has been that way for months.

Today (well yesterday I guess) I flew Atlanta to Seoul, and ICN puts every other airport to shame. Expect a huge report with lots of pictures when I get back to the states.

What a waste about your flight to MCO and as you can see with the concourses A is reconstruction with the new light. They already changed with their new light into the concourse.
