Delta Shuttle 738 @ DCA Today

Sun May 21, 2006 9:01 am

Around 2 PM a Shuttle -800 landed at DCA (for anyone who was spotting it was right before the Piedmont retro-Airbus landed). Anyone know which flight it was subbing for?

Looks like it is DAL352, and that it has been a scheduled 738 for a while.

There are quite a few DL 738's that still say "Delta Shuttle" on the side. I have been on two of them in the past three weeks. They just haven't removed the "shuttle" titles off them. By the way, I was supposed to be on a DL 757 mainline aircraft last night. It was substituted with a "Song" aircraft.

Bohica is correct.... all B738s bearing Delta Shuttle titles are indeed back in mainline configuration.
It's a new day. Every moment matters. Now, more than ever.

Yep. I've been on two of them to RDU over the last few weeks. I got a bit worried when I saw the Shuttle titles as I thought we had a sub and my F seat was gone but luckily they just hadn't fixed the livery yet.

There was on at PHX on Tuesday afternoon....I noticed it but didn't think too much of it.

I'm sure its been talked about already but what's Delta using for the Shuttle flights now?
