Consensus among historians is that none of these attempts was worth the while, and it might have been better, if the Pan Am name was allowed to rest in peace. Don't forget the abortive Pam Am-Northwest merger attempt in early 1989. If not for Marvin Davis, Al Checci and Fred Malek's deeper pockets,...Jump to post

Speaking of the remaining MD-88 routes, anyone know what is up with DL 1317 today? Flightaware shows it operated IAD-ATL normally, but Google shows it diverted to ORF, and delta.com shows it was scheduled to operate IAD-ORF-ATL, but went IAD-ATL. Did they declare a diversion and then cancel it? Fli...Jump to post

Personally I think carriers should be allowed to petition the DOT to drop CARES mandated routes if they can put together an argument that the market has "comparable service". You know they do this all the time in-reverse with limited slot rewards, trying to tell DOT that a carrier doesn't...Jump to post

Another measure of schedule reliability is flights cancelled. For the year 2019 Delta reported for mainline (which includes A221) 281 days of ZERO flight cancellations and for total system (including connection carriers) 165 days of zero flight cancellations.Jump to post
So I'm not familiar with this website, but this article is terribly written. First, they don't attribute any of their information. Where did they pull this from? There's no response from Delta and the author appears to be drawing their own conclusions without any company statement. While they menti...Jump to post
I'm presuming that DL is scheduling the retirement of some -88s for the 31st August 2020?

8947 is a charter, and DL has been using the MD88s for NCAA sports charters, typically basketball and hockey.

I just found in Official Airline Guide Online a showing that the last MD88 Memphis-Atlanta flights will be 31 August 20 (subject to change any week).
