Re: DL1305, ATL-MCO, 1/11/2009

While it's by no means precise information for the dates you mentioned, I used to frequent the ATL-MCO route on the regular and 71 was usually the arrival/departure gate for the widebody ATL turns, I arrived into 74 once as well but that was back around 2003/2005.

Re: DL1305, ATL-MCO, 1/11/2009

A16 was a popular gate for the 767-400. I went out of it many times when on the 764 to MCO or FLL. I guess A16 is typically used for somewhat larger planes, as far as the aircraft that Concourse A typically receives. I left out of A12 once and saw a 767-300 parked at A16. Ironically, the only other...

Such data is available via Delta's servers and a Delta employee violating IT policy would be able to provide you with it, as all of that information is archived (although it is bizarre why you'd want to indulge in such irrelevancy).

Would love it if DL put as many A220s into SEA as possible. I think it is a great jet and is perfect for SEA. Passengers are responding favorably to it wherever it flies.

And, that’s the tea!
