RE: I Have To Fly On N814DE

I saw ship 814 today at MCO in the early evening. I'm definitely going to miss the widget livery!

RE: Cheaperst Airline Fare You Have Ever Payed

I forgot to mention another really low airfare on my post above. MCO-MEM-BHM-MEM-MCO on Northwest in April 2001. $110.00 round-trip. Equipment included 752, AvroRJ, DC9, A320.

RE: ATA L1011's

Okay, so the L1011 flights are scheduled. ATA no longer has the L1011 listed in the fleet section of their website. They only have 737-800 and 757-200/300 listed.

ATA L1011's

What is the status of the L1011's in ATA's fleet? I was spotting at MCO this evening and saw one land (only a few minutes after a company 753 arrived). I assume this L1011 was an equipment substitution, or could I be wrong? <br><table align=center border=0 width=500><tr><td><center><font color="#EEE...

RE: Ridiculously Short Flights

ATL-BHM last no more than 30 minutes, at the most. It's about 100 miles I believe. Delta operates this route using a variety of equipment, including 752, 722, and MD88. That's probably the shortest flight I've ever been on.

    RE: Which Airline Should I Take- Delta Or AirTran?

    I have experiences with both airlines. Obviously, if you're looking for multiple aircraft types, including widebodies, go with Delta. I've never had a problem with Delta and their legroom. I have always had positive experiences on Delta, having flown on their 772, MD88, 752, and 722 aircraft. I'd go...

Champion Air, owned by Northwest, operates a 727 into MCO as well. And, just the other day, ATA brought a 727 (in old colors) i...
