Re: A333 flying DL295 ATL-HND today

Are there some A359s down or something? N823NW seems to flying what have been A359 routes as of late. ATL-HND, HND-DTW, DTW-CDG, and CDG-ATL. Or its more cost efficient to have a 330 on the routes versus a 350. Keep in mind that they are trying to cut costs everywhere possible so why fly a larger p...

Interesting that DL isn't putting the A321 on routes out of KSEA yet. Any idea if there are plans to? I think that SEA is a 737 pilot base, which would explain why the hub is so 738/739-heavy. DL briefly used the A321 last fall on one daily MSP-SEA-DTW rotation, but we haven't seen anything since. ...
