And DL doesn't know this ahead of time? DL knew way back that they would only have so many 350's to go around on these two routes to start. I intentionally booked a flight to ICN leaving this Thursday for the sole intention of flying on the 350 in the 'suite' seat. I fully realize that aircraft subs happen but I'll really be pissed if its swapped with the 74 though, I wouldn't mind one last ride on the queen of the skies, as long as the return flight next Monday stays a 350.

Begs another question, why all of a sudden is N502DN doing short domestic hops, sans passengers of course, between DTW-CVG-MSP-DTW etc...?


The short domestic hops are for crew training.


I get that but DL didn't know that ahead of time? So now, they take a scheduled 350, the new flagship of the fleet, off of the ICN route and replace it with the antiquated 747? Sounds like piss poor planning to me.


I would rather the crew have adequate training versus having an inexperienced crew on the type and potentially having an incident due to lack of training.

It isn't piss poor planning if they planned to have 747s sit idle in case they are needed. They could just cancel the flight all together if it makes you feel better.

You would think they would, but I guess not.

I wonder what they're doing with Premium Select passengers. Not all can be bumped up to J.

Those are false dilemmas. It's simply poor planning to have to send an A350 out for crew training when it's already scheduled for revenue service.

Sounds like amazing flexibility to me. It’s a new system for Delta. Can’t expect it to operate like something that’s been around for years.

No. I'm pointing out that safety/no safety was not the only choice for DL. Clearly something went wrong in planning. I've never seen a plane pulled for training flights.

I have to agree with MSPNWA on this one. As good a job as DL does with some things, this one they simply dropped the ball. There's no excuse as far as I am concerned. By now, an airline that's been in business as long as DL should have down to a science the ins and outs of training flights to the extent of pulling a brand new plane on not one but two occasions. I'm guessing that DL must have bumped up as many folks as possible from premium select to business class being that you almost have double the amount of seats in J. Also, for those that paid the $500 premium to fly in the suite seat, I guess DL has to refund that money?

I'm on tomorrow's DL159 and so far its looking like its back to the 359.

Does anyone know why they are using an actual aircraft when all the training can be done in a sim. Training on a/c went out years ago. I know DL. did bounces for the NW. pilots on the 767 but that was different.

Training may not be just for pilots. Regardless, nothing beats an actual aircraft versus a simulator.

When they start cutting engines on you in the middle of the night...I prefer the sim. However, you're right about nothing beats the actual a/c normally.

I watched a domestic 763 take off from MSN yesterday. I presume it was a charter taking the Badgers to IND for the B1G Championship game.
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

Training can be done in the sim, but there are still OE (operating experience) requirements that can only be done in the airplane. No matter how good the sim is....it’s not the same as the aircraft.

For a new aircraft (A350) seems training in the actual aircraft would be required at least for the check pilots, no? Does the 330 and 350 have the same type rating?

It has not, that ship will be the prototype, however it's currently over at Leading Edge over in AMA for paint. Look for it to enter mods in February.

There should be 148 left now. IIRC there should be no more A359 until early 2018, the next 763ER will retire in March will more to come in the year. The last 2 763s seems they won't be WFU until the end of next year. I'm pretty sure the wide body fleet is going to at least go down into the 130s once they burn through the 763ERs like hot cakes in a bake sale.

Just two left at this point. They seem to be doing mostly opportunistic upgauges and charter flights as of now, although next summer they'll be needed for SLC-HNL.
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

I noticed a charter from some city (didn't quite pay attention to which) to STL, then STL to ATL on a 767 a few days back. Was the STL-ATL made into a commercial flight?
Instead of typing in "mods", consider using the report function.
Love how every "travel blogger" says they will never fly AA/Ethihad again and then says it again and again on subsequent flights.

That was a military charter from BIF on a 764. The positioning flight to ATL was not a live flight.

I just noticed that today's A350 flight DL 276 from NRT>DTW, operated by N503DN, is being diverted to SEA. Anyone know what's going on here? On the App it shows DL 276 as operating NRT>MSP and has been cancelled!

I'm showing the flight did not stop in SEA and instead continued on to DTW and the MSP leg was in case they needed to make a flagstop for a crew change.
