For those who care, I just passed FLL about 30 minutes ago and saw an MD11 parked at the DL gates.

Is that unusual?

Aren't DL MD11s and 772s common at FLL along with the 763s and 764s?

DL MD11s and 772s are quite regular at MCO with at least 2 of each or more a day

FLL barely gets the MD-11 or 777... mainly all 767-200/300/400s, along w/ the 757s, MD88s, MD90s, and the 737-200s...

Hmm...FLL has been buzzing lately...the Embraer Legacy prototype was in yesterday, as well as an ATA 753...I think I saw a DL 777 earlier in the week at FLL...from ATL DL typically uses the 763/764 here...

Just on a related note, I'll be going to spot tomorrow (12/26) at FLL along with user AC320, details TBD, anyone who wants to come is more than welcome to...check nonav forum for details...

Also according to Delta MD-11s in Tampa
ALSO... it will come back around 5 and leave around 6
AND
According to Delta: comair/asa flight to Atlanta
it should be back to normal tomorrow

anyone know what Flight Crew Restrictions means and how this helped us get an MD 11

USAFHummer,

I should be inbound tomorrow (I say "should" because it's snowing quite heavily right now and im unsure how its going to be tomorrow morning) on DL 1127, a 764 from ATL around 11:30am or so. If you get a shot of that aircraft coming in, let me know and I'll give you an email address that you could send it to me.

If not, that's fine, it may be earlier than you are going to get out there. Whatever is convenient!

Thanks in advance.

It is not unusual to see a larger plane brought in due to heavy passenger loads. Instead of adding an extra section, DL must have figured that a MD-11 could handle the demand for that flight.

I'll be coming in saturday night on an Express 732 from JFK.

Is Express still at EWR? Are these JFK-FLL flights completely full? I got a cheap ticket on Expedia about 10 days before the trip which was a surprise. round trip in DL was equivalent to one way on Jetblue.

hmmm...

TNNH...I'd say its a safe bet your flight will be full...flights from the Northeast to South Florida are packed always regardless of time of day and year...and the JFK-FLL route is one of the most in-demand routes in the US...

Not that I could make it today, dangit, but for future reference, is the level 7 the roof of the long term or short term parking lot?

(You can tell I'm not familiar with FLL)

can we turn back to the MD-11 for a minute....
I already posted this, but i feel it is the only way to get back to the topic

1) What does "flight Crew Restrictions" mean?
2) Did a MD-11 go to Tampa
3) Did the MD-11 come back to FLL
4) if anyone was on the MD-11 to FLL or Tampa yesterday, can you give any more info.

According to flytecomm.com there will be a Delta 777 arriving in from ATL at about 3:20. Here it is...

Airline Delta
Flight Number 9577
Departure City (Airport) Atlanta, GA (ATL)
Departure Time 12/26/2002 02:00 PM
Arrival City (Airport) Fort Lauderdale, FL (FLL)
Arrival Time 12/26/2002 03:23 PM
Remaining Flight Time 01:23 (planned)
Aircraft Type Boeing 777-200
Current Altitude 0 feet
Current Groundspeed 0 mph
Flight Status Planned

Then departing at about 4:30pm

Airline Delta
Flight Number 9577
Departure City (Airport) Fort Lauderdale, FL (FLL)
Departure Time 12/26/2002 04:26 PM
Arrival City (Airport) Atlanta, GA (ATL)

Remaining Flight Time 01:27 (planned)
Aircraft Type Boeing 777-200
Current Altitude 0 feet
Current Groundspeed 0 mph
Flight Status Planned

Could these flights be done to get ground crews familiar with handling such aircraft, and therefore be hints at possible scheduled MD11 or B777 flights to FLL. Its probably just my wishful thinking....  Smile


Also, for those interested, there is a Casino Express flight from Newark due into FLL at 2:30. How common is Casino Express at FLL?

from what i've heard, the ATC was suprised and said something like "we don't serve MD-11s here!" the pilot said something like "we couldn't get a crew."

so, whatever that means, I don't think MD-11s or 777s will be here forever

Sllevin,

I believe level 7 is long-term, what we did today was park on level 2 of the garage and take the elevator to level 7...there were a few cops driving by, didnt stop or say anything so I assume we are safe from "persecution" there for spotting...its actually a good alternate when 27R is in use, but I imagine that when 9L is being used its probably not the best...

DL 763's at FLL are nothing new, they are extremely common there, several flights daily from ATL...but the DL 738 is somewhat rare for FLL AFAIK...

Just take SR 84 to Andrews, go south, and get on the perimeter road, and you can park just north of the Employee Overflow lot (just SE of the 595/95 exchange).

You'll probably get a visit from the Broward County Sheriff's office or the airport security, but I think they'll let you stay there.

Another IDEA is to contact the tower (yes, they have a public #) and tell them you will be at that end of the airfield in public right-of-way taking photographs... that way the ground controllers won't call the airport gestapo on you..

I just went to FLL today, the official viewing area by the 9L threshold is still closed...barricades on both sides, however operations when I took off out of there about 10 AM this morning were on 27R so the garage is the best area for that...
