DL seems to have completly restructured their use of MD90's this summer ... we now also have a daily DFW-MD90 here in SEA.

There are enough M90's thru TPA nowto constitute a post. All TPA needs on the DL side is SLC flights.

DL should reinstate its TPA-MSY-SLC flight with an M90 or a 738!

Yup! I flew Flight 1235 TPA-DFW on the 20th!

It's not really that much of a deal though, just some big fat airbus engines strapped onto a slightly stretched MD-88.

Well, and better brakes.

And an IFES...

FADEC...

Hydraulically augmented pitch control...

The cool strake above the horizontal stabilizer...

Vacuum-flush toilets...

2-3 seating swapped around...

Well, I guess it is kind of a big deal?  Smile

Doug, you make flying on the ol' Mad Dog sound exciting, or something  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Maybe I should try and book one of these suckers on my yearly trek out to DFW...

JAX has been getting the M90's for over 1 year now. They started flying them in there in the spring of 2002.

The Mad Dog's a great aircraft. The Boeing drivers think I have "Stockholm Syndrome" when I say that, but I enjoy flying the -88 and especially the MD-90.

If I had my way, we'd have dumped the -88's and purchased -90's instead.

Correct you are MSYtristar. DL should reinstate the SLC MSY TPA flight. There is a market for it. The flights were always full. The problem was it was operated with a 727. The MD90 or 738 would be perfect on the route and much more cost effective.

Speaking of the devil, I saw my first MD-90 today  Smile I was leaving work here at TPA and out on the end of 36L was a DL new colors preparing for take off. Hard to look at an airplane and negotiate a curve while driving. I am sure the people behind me must have thought I was drunk or something!  Big grin
Happens everytime I get near the airport.
It was nice to see a new variation in here. DL had a MD-11 in here last week as well. Must have been a sub for an ATL flight. It was in the middle scheme (Landor colors?).
I believe I can fly.....

I agree with each other about DL should need reinstate for nonstop from TPA-MSY-SLC flight on MD-90 flight. I think should be do fine for Delta. I'd saw MD-90 alot of FLL airport much. I'm flown on MD-90 for 2 times from DFW-SFO & DFW-FLL flight. Well, talk ya later!

Regards!

The MD90s always made the 737NG look like no big deal ... at least to me. I first got to fly on an MD90 a few years back on DL on the DFW-PBI run, and it just has so many of the much touted NG-like features like doug mentioned at so much less hype and exposure. Its a great aircraft. LOVE IT.
I've flown on 9V-SPK.
