DL CLE-MCO

Fri Nov 03, 2006 11:10 am

When did Delta stop their 732 service from CLE-MCO? And how many times a day did this operate. I remember hearing at one time, 6x a day but thats juist to hard to believe. Any help is appreciated

That sounds like something from the Delta Express days (Delta's response to Metro Jet, Shuttle by United, and Continental Lite from the mid 90s). Delta Express was very big in MCO, but 6x to CLE does sound a bit too much.

1x daily flight in 1998. It was pulled after that summer.

Did Delta Connection OH ever operate that route...?

I knew when I worked for OH at one time I think we operate a number of northeast routes with CRJs until the refitted "Delta Express" 732s came online... This was before I was working in MCO though...

I'm thinking CLE or PIT any one remember?

I think Delta Express was all 737-200s. Probably about 40 or 50 of them.

Yes, in 1995, before DL Express was started, Comair did indeed fly CRJs from MCO to both CLE and PIT. It lasted one summer.

It was a Delta Express route. Competed directly with CO and WN at the time so it didn't do so hot.

It most likely was 6 times a week.
