DL1305, ATL-MCO, 1/11/2009

Wed Jul 17, 2019 5:39 am

Upon doing some research through https://www.transtats.bts.gov/ONTIME/Departures.aspx I have uncovered information about a flight I took back in 2009, when I was only 11. It was Delta Flight 1305, from Atlanta to Orlando, operated by a Boeing 767-400, tail number N833MH. I specifically remember the flight being on a 767, but didn’t realize that it was a -400 until I did the research. Is there any way, such as a website, to find further details, specifically the departure/arrival gates?

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).

I guess my curiosity is just based around the fondness of this trip, as it was a milestone for me as an avgeek. First time (that I can remember) flying through ATL, and my first time on a widebody. Also, we were heading down to Orlando for a Disney trip. If I had to guess, we left out of the A gates (Concourse A), as that is where most of the Orlando (MCO) flights leave out of, at least nowadays.

A16 was a popular gate for the 767-400. I went out of it many times when on the 764 to MCO or FLL.

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.

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 time I flew the ATL-MCO route was on a 757-300 around the same time of day that DL1305 was on 1/11/2009, and sure enough we left out of A16. IIRC, the 757-300 and the 767-300 have very similar fuselage lengths, if not the same.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the same way in 2009 as well. The ATL-MCO route has been served by widebodies for many years.

You’d need access to T-100 data, and it’s expensive. The Departed Flights website is as close as you will get. The information available there hinges in what they’ve been able to collect. That said, I’ve been able to find flights I took back in the 1990’s by happenstance that they had the schedule for the period I flew.
