Delta Widget MD-88'S

Mon Jul 12, 2004 10:14 am

One of my flights later this week is ATL-GSO and it is on a MD-88. Are there anymore M88'S in the widget scheme?

And if so does anyone know the routing for it (them) for this week?

Been seeing one in SEA off and on the last couple weeks. Couldn't tell you what route it runs, though.

I still see Delta's 'Widget Tail' MD-80's here in Nashville, but they are getting more and more rare.

I saw a DL Widget 80 in EWR on Friday afternoon. Nice to see that livery again.

Been seeing one in SEA off and on the last couple weeks. Couldn't tell you what route it runs, though.

You sure it was an MD88 and not one of the usual MD90s? (SEA has three DL MD90s overnight at the airport, one usually at B3, one at S5 or 6 and one at a gate on the A Concourse). The MD90s that frequent SEA are a mix of Widget and Deltaflot colors. The occasional MD88s that come in usually are in the Ron Allen 1997 scheme from what I have seen or Deltaflot. Then again, given the variety of paintschemes DL sends into SEA, it woudn't surprise me if a Widget MD88 showed up, we've pretty seen every other plane they fly here in all three liveries recently.

Your chances of getting a widget 88 are pretty slim. There are only four left. 976,9006,9007,9012. 9007 goes in for paint next week.
