Re: Delta Completes First Boeing 767-400 Cabin Refurbishment

Flew a 764 domestically from ATL-DEN last year and economy was tired even then. I'm pretty certain the 764, 772 and 772LR were the oldest long haul hard products after the A330 and 763's (except domestic) had their refurbs. Once they get done with these they will only have some older IFE product rem...

DL 757-300 landing gear catches fire at ATL on landing.

DL 757-300 (N582NW) flight from SEA-ATL had its left main landing gear catch fire after landing on Friday 6/14. Must not have been too bad as article states it turned back around to Seattle the next morning, maybe just a brake fire that was put out pretty quickly? https://simpleflying.com/delta-757-...

Glad to see DL hanging onto their Florida crown. I don't think this route is all O&D. When I lived in St. Petersburg if you wanted to bypass a US hub you were flying BA to London, then shortly after I moved away you could fly BA to London or LH to Frankfurt which is what a lot of friends of mine...

Re: TAP Portugal Plans Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, Montreal in 2020

ATL-LIS is a completely different market for TAP than for DL. DL is counting on US to Portugal; TAP is counting on ATL to Europe/North Africa. It's hard to find data supporting this, but I'd be surprised if the former market is larger than the latter, either in terms of sheer numbers and in fares. ...

DL is really drawing down the T-tails! I stopped travelling for work ~7 months ago (voluntarily) and back then I think they had only drawn down maybe a dozen of the -88's. Going to be a beige on beige spotting experience in ATL once those and the 757 are gone. Exciting days ahead said no one.

Re: DL Comfort+ - Snack basket threshold

The 900 mile threshold makes sense now. For some reason I though ATL-MSP was under but it is just over (906 miles) so got the basket on ATL-MSP then CID-ATL did not have it, I seem to recall it being offered once on that flight but I may be not remembering correctly.

Thanks for the heads up!

Re: Delta Air Lines Network Thread 2018

For the 36# days that ATL ops run smooth, it is a very profitable and effective hub to connect a lot of passengers. That said, I rarely get through ATL without a (usually minor) delay (both inbound and outbound). I personally would love to see DL spread out traffic amongst SLC/CVG/MSP/DTW/RDU, but ...

Re: DL - ATL-DEN - 767-400 daily through Feb 15th.

So just got back from this trip and holy ski traffic is all I have to say. Flight was 100% full and had a little over 30 standby passengers that did not clear. Quite a few large groups on board all probably going on ski vacation, baggage claim was at least 50% ski and snowboard bags. Made getting a ...

DL - ATL-DEN - 767-400 daily through Feb 15th.

Hey all! Planning a quick work trip to Denver and to my surprise my preferred AM departure (8:20AM) is a 767-400. Thought it has to be a one off for some special event in DEN area but it appears to be on the timetable from Jan 17th through Feb 15th pretty much daily except Sat which only runs Jan 20...

Re: Your 2017 stats

How was your 2017 flying year? Map is ultra boring - 2018 will be much the same with the addition of CLE and BUF and most likely removal of DFW. Very much ATL and DL hub captive. All except for MSP are work related travel so clearly I need a vacation. Total flights: 36 Total miles: 24,554 Countries ...

Re: Airline Service Dead Zones

DLH (Duluth, MN) It's a huge premium ~$200 for that short 35-40 minute hop from MSP coming from ATL. Of the 20+ times I have flown home to see the family (30 mins south of Duluth - 2 hours north of MSP) I have flown into Duluth I twice and those two trips were because of a small premium ~$50-100 bec...

Re: Hundreds of ATL Cancellations- Winter Weather

Bad business putting all your eggs in one basket. Wonder how many of these disasters they will endure before they start to spread their traffic more evenly over their network so passengers are not inconvenienced over and over. I don't even book connections on this airline if I can help because is s...

Re: Hundreds of ATL Cancellations- Winter Weather

ATL sees winter weather as often as northerners see NCAA football championships. GF ATL sees winter weather every year, sometimes more than once. Not necessarily - this is the 6th winter I have been here and this will only be the 3rd year with a significant winter event that has crippled transporta...
