DL 757 At Airside F In TPA

Tue Aug 17, 2004 12:55 pm

I went to pick up some friends tonight at TPA and I noticed an unusual sight - a DL 757 was parked at gate F90. Delta uses the E airside, not F, and gate F90 is usually used by BA or other international flights. Was it a diversion? Were all the gates full at Airside E? Perhaps an international charter?

If anyone knows the scoop, I'd be very interested.

I wonder if it is bringing the Cincinnati Bengals home.
