Why does DL use "73S" to identify a 732? Initially you'd think the S stood for shuttle, but did DL ever use a 732 on their shuttle routes? Thought it was 727s followed by 738s and 733s...

73S = "Boeing 737 passenger (all 200/200C/200QC series)"

its just a more general abbreviation, several airlines used it then including United.

I believe the S stands for stretch. The 727-200 series was designated as 72S. The 72S and 73S codes are pretty universal.

Would any one here be able to tell me 3 DL regs from 1998?

Flight No: 123
Date: October 2nd, 1998
ZRH-CVG

Delta Connection (Comair)
Flight No: 3911
Date: October 2nd, 1998
CVG-TUL

Delta Connection (Comair)
Flight No: 3910
Date: October 14, 1998
TUL-CVG


These seem to be very tricky. I would be very happy I someone found the regs.


Thanks
