Delta L-1011 At MCO Today

Sat Apr 14, 2001 1:18 pm

Heya Everyone, Earliar today when My Girlfriend and I were at MCO we saw a Delta Air Lines L-1011 come in from Atlanta then depart from Atlanta. It unloaded and loaded at Gate 71.

I took a look at Delta's Flight Schedules and they do have Scheduled Tristar service to MCO. I thought they pulled the L-1011 service to MCO. Is the extensive L-1011 Service replacing the 764's until they get the new seats?

I think they have their last L-1011s flying around there in the southwest, as they are about to retire all of them.
While others seem less happy about DL retireing the L-1011s, I am glad to see that coming, as I am about DL replacing the old overhead bins in their 757s.
But you might be right about DL waiting for their 764s - on my last couple of flights, they were not very flexible in having spare a/cs around - the whole crew (including the pilots) had to wait until the delayed equipment came in.

Ya, I think I read something about Delta having a some L-1011's out west.

I hate to see the Tristar leave but I can see how others are glad.

I wish Delta would do a complete renovation of their 757's!!!!! Their pushing 20 years old.

I know Delta is getting more 767-400's and I read where they were putting new seats in them.

That sucks that you had to wait.
