I'm on DL 561 tomorrow -- leaving DFW at the insanely early hour of 5:30AM. I see it's an MD-88, but what I don't see is where the flight is coming from!
The last MD-88 into DFW the night before is from ATL at like 7:30PM. Does the plane really sit around DFW until the next morning?
Also, the gates are not right. As of now, the 752 from ATL is going into E13 at 1130pm tonight, and then 561 leaves that same gate at 530am.
My guess is that these planes are rotating into and out of a maintenance facility at DFW -- DL still has one there, right?
Anyways, if anyone can clear up, I would appreciate it.
