Yet Another 757 (3rd) From DL To RIC

Fri Apr 27, 2007 11:01 am

Ok, so now we are up to three 757's a day that are visiting RIC. I was looking through May schedules and it appears DL will be sending three 757's daily to RIC except on Tuesdays (2 757's) and Saturdays (1 757). It's so great to see DL expanding at RIC and seeing the 757 becoming a regular. Here are some of the schedules:

ATL-RIC:
Departs: 935A Arrives: 1108A
Departs: 1230P Arrives: 201P
Departs: 800P Arrives: 934P

RIC-ATL:
Departs: 715A Arrives: 907A
Departs:1200P Arrives: 139P
Departs: 251P Arrives: 435P

Looks good. Delta isn't sending any of the 757's that have PTV's currently though. Maybe we will see a 738?

I flew on the 757 to RIC last week and it was full!!! Only 2 open seats in Y class. It was nice though, they even played some inflight shows on the overhead screens. Nice touch for a short domestic flight.

Evan767,

Any updates on DL adding SLC service? Do you know when they are supposed to move to the end of Concourse B? I was at RIC about two weeks ago and looks like the new baggage claim should be completed within a month or so. Any news on who will operate Skybus flights at RIC and at which gate?

Does anyone know when DL will be changing gates on the B concourse at RIC or when the south side of the baggage claim will be complete?

Haven't heard anything about SLC, so I wouldn't get my hopes up...at all. Though you never know, there is a rumor about Delta acquiring more MD-90's which would be good for the route.

I think IIRC, Delta is planning to move in June...? I can't really remember. I will check back in with you guys on that. I think the move and the baggage claim is supposed to be completed by the time summer starts..

Yes, I have been thinking the same thing about service to DEN. That service is long overdue. Thanks for the update though.

I am really pleased to see Skybus offering service to RIC, even though the schedules don't match well for connections to other cities. Hopefully we will see additional flights in the near future as well as more service from our existing carriers.

Is B6 still using two XpressJet aircraft for each flight from JFK to RIC? I know they originally used two planes when they started the overhaul of the E190 fleet. I read in the Times Dispatch that B6 passenger numbers continue to increase! They will add another BOS roundtrip in May, at least they gain the flight they lost a month ago.

Oh yeah, is that the airline offering $10 fares to CMH? That will come in real handy for my brother who goes to Ohio State.

Yes, but...most of the $10.00 fares on the weekend are gone. However they are still only $20-$50.
