Just think,here in ROC we used to have A^A DC-10-10's to LGA! I have an old newspaper clipping from one ran off the runway in the 70's. hope DL will bring mainline back to the ROC,we haven't had regular 737NG service here since Eastwind left.
If Delta does bring mainline back, I'd guess they'd use the same smaller types of mainline a/c they're using in BUF
does see some 738's, but they don't have AirTran, either.
I have that clipping about the off-runway DC-10 too. My mom drove me out to see it, but they had already towed the plane to the terminal. It's one of my earliest memories.
BTW when I was doing research on ROC
history at the downtown Library on my last trip home, I found a news clipping about a UA
DC-8 having some minor problem at ROC
in the late '70s. So it is on paper somewhere that UA
was flying DC-8s into ROC
in some capacity, maybe substitutions or charter. Something to back up my visual memory of seeing UA
stretch DC-8s in pre-1974 livery passing over my home in Greece on approach in 1978.
