ATA @ Ord?

Wed Jun 05, 2002 8:46 am

I just ran across this picture. It is an ATA 757 on finals @ ORD. Excuse me if I'm wrong, but I thought ATA only flew into MDW. What's this aircraft doing at ORD?

Can't be certain, but it was probably a charter. ATA does fly charter services out of ORD, with 757s.

ATA runs a extensive charter program from ORD on behalf of various tour operators.

ATA does charters to the Carribean and other destinations from ORD, MKE, DTW, and other airports.

The L1011s could have been the ORD-HNL charters they ran for PHH(Pleasant Hawaiian Holidays). The L1011 couldn't take off from MDW, so they had it fly out of ORD.

ATA is used by Funjet for the O'Hare - Vegas charters... and ATA is also used by Apple Vacations for some of it's caribbean flights.... (Apple uses almost everyone out of ORD!)

Tekelbery wow someone used one of my photos in a post! Amazing! Lol i took that shot on Easter weekend....ok heres the explanation...

ATA flies charters from ORD. Like you will see ATA L1011s at ORD since MDW is too small for the L10. Also the 757-200s do charters to the carribs from ORD. Personally ive seen 3 ATA 757s land in a row at ORD at one time. I got to catch that guy on Final at 27L in O'Hare
