Cabin Announcements

Mon Sep 18, 2000 7:19 am

Last time I flew Delta from TPA to ATL, as we were boarding the plane, the FA comes on the PA and is "pleased to announce non-stop 767 jet service to Atlanta". When we landed, she announced that Delta was "pleased to be the first to welcome you to the Atlanta William Hartsfield International Worldport". I thought Pan Am at JFK was the Worldport! Whats up with those announcements??

Maybe they just got a little full of themselves. After all, DL did take over Pan Am's old Atlantic routes. Although ATL may be the busiest and biggest airport, the Worldport remains at JFK.

I believe I heard this as well after landing on a CO flight, IAH-ATL in July 99.

No, those are just usual dl cabin annauncements.
in other words they just want to express that they are
happy to operate the flight from A to B.
and afther the landing they are the first to welcome you at your destination.

ATL Worldport

Delta currently markets its ATL hub as the Hartsfield-Atlanta International Worldport. The use is especially prevalent in press releases detailing service changes to/from ATL.

I guess they bought the trademark from the Pan Am estate.
