So when production of the CRJ ends, unless I’m missing something, will that be the end of t-tailed rear mounted engine aircraft production in the commercial world? I’m not counting the ARJ21 as of now... not until it gets to be a bigger player...Jump to post
Hello all, What is the smaller, squared off, u shaped terminal in the middle of the field by the cargo facility? It’s completely separate from the other terminals but still has roughly a dozen gates. Is this overflow? VIP? Or something else? I’ve been to YYZ multiple times but have never been over t...Jump to post

All MD-88/90s are based out of ATL now. And they are used mostly on routes within the southeast and Midwest. There are a few 88/90 routes that still go further places like PWM, BDL and ELP. They are pretty heavy in the Florida markets as well. Those would be good places to start. Hope this helps!Jump to post
I know it a little out there, but who else would like to see a formation flight of multiple American MD-80s over DFW??? With all the ferry flights you would think they could pull it off!Jump to post

I can’t give sources but 984 or 501 is the likely candidate as 984 was the last Md80 produced, and 501 is the last legacy AA bird.
I’m hoping N501AA is used on flight AA80 on September 4!Jump to post
It wasn't that long ago that Delta bought up nearly all the MD-90s in the world and completely refurbished them. That seems like such a waste if they are already planning to retire them. It was even more recent that we were on the verge of a cockpit update to the MD-88. They said had the update gon...Jump to post
We know DL is currently the only MD-90 operator in the world. But who was the last one to fly the -90 before DL became the sole operator?Jump to post

Hello all, Video here of an engine with a pretty serious problem... It’s a short video so there really isn’t any info. Has anyone seen this? What type of plane is it? I’m assuming MD-80 because of the inlet guide veins, which prevented even more damage! What airline? Where in the world? https://www....Jump to post
When was the American MD-80 last seen at LGA?Jump to post
Are there any YYZ AA MD-80 flights left? Is/was that the last international destination for the AA MD-80?Jump to post
Not only did they want planes in a hurry, but due to timing they got low priced end of production run -200s. Sound familiar? Same thing they just did with the 739ceo and A321ceo. According to legend, Boeing gave them a generous credit on the first 11 L1011s, ships 701-711, which Boeing them re-mark...Jump to post
After AA retires their last MD80, there will still be opportunities to fly on MD80s. Delta will continue flying its MD88s, MD90s, and 717s for the next several years. I'd expect to stop seeing the MD88 on the schedule past this upcoming holiday season. The 90 may or may not last a little longer tha...Jump to post
I’ll bet my next paycheck that the last flight will be flown by N501AA. It’s the last single remaining MD-82 and original American (Non-TWA) MD-80 in the fleet. Seems quite fitting.Jump to post
We have seen planes like the DC-8/9/10, MD-80, 737-200’s, 727s and others fly on for years after production ended and they were withdrawn from the major carriers. I get the feeling we won’t be seeing that kind of longevity with the A380... but who knows!Jump to post
I wonder what the longest historical DL MD-88 flight was? A few years ago they were flying the MKE/PIT-CUN. That’s a long way! LGA-RSW is another one. While I don’t think it was ever regularly scheduled, I remember a few times they were substituted on the ATL- ELP/ABQ routes. Those are normally MD-...Jump to post
Hello all, So the MD-88s supposedly have until sometime next year until retirement. They have been steadily parked over the last year and I’m curious of a few things... 1. What are the longest remaining routes the MD-88 currently flies for DL? 2. How many should be left in the fleet by the end of th...Jump to post
Came across this earlier. They’re saying it could be the next spruce goose. What is everyone’s thoughts? Could someone else use the massive plane for something?

I've been a resident of Hilton Head for 30 years and I can still remember when the airport terminal was that brown hut looking building on the GA side with baggage claim being a wooden bench on the edge of the ramp (although it's not terribly different now). Now the airport is going to be served wi...Jump to post

How many does that leave in SFB? Have they all ferried out?Jump to post
Have the remaining few MD-80s left Sanford once and for all yet?Jump to post

Since I haven’t seen much publicity around the MD-80 retirement, here is the first quick video I’ve seen.

So is it safe to say N415NV will be the last ever Allegiant MD-83 to fly as it’s the furthest out from landing? Or are there still more ferry flights to BHM?Jump to post
This will be interesting to watch unfold... Why take away flight benefits? I can’t imagine it’s hard for the company to offer?Jump to post
I hope the heritage flight is well documented from a company and passenger perspective!Jump to post
N417NV is currently enroute from SFB to LAS.
