Skyteam Livery DL 757 @ DCA 5/16

Thu May 17, 2012 3:12 am

Could have sworn I saw the DL Skyteam livery 757 landing at DCA tonight while we were taxiing out. I thought that was an ETOPS/BizElite 757? If so, what's it doing in DCA?

Are you sure it wasn't N659DL? N659DL is also in SkyTeam livery, but is not an ETOPS/BizElite aircraft.

I'd assume it was carrying passengers and cargo to and from the DC area. No reason an ETOPS 757 couldn't go to DCA on an equipment swap.

Aha, totally could have been it. I saw a Skyteam livery with winglets and thought there was only one of them in the fleet. Thanks for the info.

Looking at FlightAware, N659DL was indeed in DCA today:

FlightAware has it as N659DL. Its addition to the SkyTeam livery fleet was fairly quiet.
