Man that BTV terminal 'connection' is kind of strange. That and they really love to use cheap containers for a lot of their projects.

If their goal is to reduce TSA costs or retail labor, fine, but damn that's one way of doing it.

It's a large part why I chose the DL flight up to BTV, to get on DLs 737, it's for DL kinda of one of a kind in a sense.

And yes, can't say date(s), but both 737 and MD-88 have been used to BTV in past for a brief period of time.
