I probabvly know what the consensus will be on this, but I figure I'll ask anyway.
Over Memorial Day, I will be returning from Ft. Myers to Chicago via Atlanta on Delta. The flight I am scheduled to take from Atlanta to Chicago is a 757, a type that I've flown on several times before. This flight leaves somewhere around 2:00pm. If, however, I wait until 5:00, I can take an L-1011, a type which I have not flown since I was a very little kid and which I fear may be retired before I can fly one again. I don't mind spending extra time in ATL, but I do hav eot start work the next day at a big time Chicago law firm. Should I delay my return and take the L-1011? Provided that the flight is not full, will I have difficulty switching flights as a standby?
