Loads On DL 46 ATL-SVO

How is Delta doing on this route so far? ALso, does this route have a lot of O & D traffic or does it mainly serve the vast Russian population living in FLorida?

I flew ATL-SVO on Delta on the 21st of June. The plane was full. But I ended up flying back to the US going SVO-JFK instead. I talked to one of the flight attendants, who already had time to fly the ATL-SVO roundtrip 10 times since it started which was less than a month ago at that time. I found that really amazing!! Talk about going back and forth. Anyway, she said the loads were very good most of the time. Then again it was the beginning of summer, so people could have going back to Russia for the holidays. But it was a great flight!

I was taking photos at ATL in late August and saw the flight take off right in front of me. I was on top of one of the parking decks alongside 27L. The 767-300ER used up most of the runway, it must've been loaded with both pax and fuel for the longhaul to SVO.
