ATL-MCO On A 777 Or A 764?

Sat Nov 10, 2007 3:03 pm

Why would DL put these aircraft (764, 777) on ATL-MCO?
these aircraft have transpacific/transatlantic range but on a short flight like ATL-MCO!!!

I've been on the 777 from ATL to MCO and it was full. That is how you fly it  Smile

If the airplane is gonna be on the ground doing nothing in ATL for a few hours might as well fly it on a 1 hour flight and get some extra $. ATL-MCO is ALWAYS full.

You're a Delta Air Lines pilot but don't know the basis of "your" carrier's fleet utilization?

Am I missing something, when Delta re-start 777 service back up again between these two cities....

By the way, and I know its been mentioned here before, but it seems like only a few years back that I flew the 777, MD-11 and 764 between these two cities...Wow how times have changed.....

I think Curticool was just trying to get some 'experts' riled up with his post, LOL!!! He must have been soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo bored, LOL.

IMHO, if I route supports a widebody, then it's a no brainer... also maybe, if route normally scheduled with other a/c types, then maybe a mechanical or delay that would prompt an a/c swap would also be another reason...

Not in Delta's case where they only have 8 777's and 21 764's elsewhere.

The reason they do this is to boost utilization, make a little cash on the side with these widebodies when they'd be sitting in ATL for a few hours otherwise.

Is a 772 scheduled ATL-MCO? A few times a month they swap one of the 764 flights with a 772, but i don't remember them scheduling the 772 to Orlando in the last year.

This is the best response I have seen on here from a poster (and even better since it's coming form a pilot). Seriously, that's a great response.

Early on, the reason for putting the 772 on the ATL-MCO-ATL route was for training purposes, to get some stick time.

They currently fly a 772 ATL-LAX-ATL.

The 772 they use is an operational spare. The flight in question leaves after the ATL-NRT flight leaves, so that if the a/c being used for the ATL-NRT flight had an issue, they can easily swap a/c.

As for the use of the 764, it's not odd at all. DL originally got the 764s as a replacement for the L-1011, so routes that were predominantly L-1011 routes (For example ATL-LAS, ATL-LAX, ATL-FLL, ATL-MCO, ATL-TPA, ATL-HNL) got served with the 764s. Not all of the 764s will be converted for use on international service.

At one point, DL have pretty much every mainline widebody type operating into MCO from ATL.

I remember when they were flying ATL-MCO-JFK-MCO-ATL with the 772. The MCO-JFK-MCO routing was discontinued in the fall of 2000 when the MCO-JFK-MCO route was transferred over to Delta Express.

I scheduled my flights for the holidays around this fact. I saw that some MCO-ATL flights were 763s and since I've never been on a widebody - thought that might be cool. Then I saw a 764 - even better! My guess was that it was for the holidays and that they were predicting a slightly higher passenger count then normal. Since I got the last 764 flight for the day I wanted - and to keep the price to the minimum - in the end I ended up having 4 legs with 4 different aircraft, through 4 different airports. MCO-ATL-PHL on a 764 and 752, then PHL-BOS-MCO on a CRJ-100 and MD-88.

Just a quick question re the 764 and 777, does DL operate a common pilot pool for the 764 and 777, given their very similar cockpits; if not, do 764 pilots then go on to the 777, since even if there isn't a common crew qualification, the conversion from the 764 to the 777 is probably quite short, akin to the A330-A340 conversion?

It's my understanding that a common pool flies the 752/763/764 and a different pool for the 772.

With respect, absolutely anyone flying for Delta would be aware of the HUGE market Delta caters for in international connections to MCO from ATL and the historical fact that Delta have long placed widebodies on those services for that fact and that it utilised aircraft otherwise dormant before the evening bank.

Hence the reason for questioning the validity of your qualification.

Perhaps, as DL crew, you can therefore answer OB1504's question for us.  sly

I think people are being a little harsh on the OP. If he is a pilot then why would he have access to any strategic plans that upper and middle management might have that would truly answer this question. A.netters only use speculation based on past experience and current news to draw conclusion on the airline industry, most here are not involved with the people who have the data to make such important decisions such as fleet utilization.

Personally, I don't care why DL flies the 767-400 to MCO; I just enjoy flying on the plane. I purposely book for the 10:30 flight on the 764 even though sometimes I have a 4 hour layover it ATL. What a great bird.

I have noticed a lot lately that DL has put more and more MD-88s on the ATL-Florida routes. I remember flying from FLL-ATL on a 767-300 or a 400 a few years ago. WIth Delta greatly expanding its international flying, they are putting more of the widebodies on the international routes.

If he's a DL pilot, I'd wager he's been in the game at least a decade and how you could go that long not understanding a simple fleet utilization question like he posed makes us all skeptical. Not all pilots know the crazy a.net nerdy stuff like what carriers prefer what engine manufacturer, but they're not that ignorant when it comes to general airline ops type questions. And if you think the airlines hide this type of info, you're just as ignorant. I don't think DL's management is exactly keeping tight lipped about their "secret attack" on the ATL-MCO market. Seriously people. You guys make me laugh. Well, the 2 of you that aren't on the same page as everyone else...

Very doubtful this OP is a "real" DL pilot, but this question does come up quite a lot on Anet.

DL was operating L1011's ATL to MCO in the 70's, this has been a very long term solution to squeeze a "turn" in between Intl flights while addressing customer demand.

One has to be extremely naive not to know why Delta wouldnt fly Widebodied aircraft into MCO. Delta does the same for LAX, which sees 763, 764, 777 and the 752. MCO is probably the premier holiday destination in the US, and ATL being the king of all Hubs im guessing there is a hell a lot of demand for flights into MCO. It really doesnt matter about the length of the flight, just look at the number of widebody flights from Haneda to Sapporo, or to Osaka Kansai and Itami. If there is a demand, for it they will fly that kind of aircraft, and it isnt like theyre doing 3-4 flights a day into MCO, there is atleast 12-13 flights a day I think, according to flighaware, most of them being 752's and a very few number of MD-80's or MD-90's.

No, at Delta the 767-300, 767-400, and 777 are entirely different categories for training and qualification. There is no crew crossover or dual qualification.

Also, DL uses those longer haul aircraft on shorter domestic legs mostly as schedule fill during the time *between* international arrival/departure banks.

As you probably know, they are soon removing all 767s from domestic markets and redeploying them on international routes. The aircraft will be refitted with standard DL international cabins -- i.e. Business Elite interiors up front.

My guess is he's another 15 year old who thinks it's cool to pretend he's a DL pilot on an aviation website. We also have more than one of these around here, for what it's worth.

Pilots aren't dumb and this isn't some obscure fact that only an aviation geek would know. Definitely not something obscure to someone in the industry.

Well, digging into your credibility, in one thread you claim that all your air travel throughout your life has been on Delta metal.

Fair enough.

But then there's also another thread where you say you've flown on both B772 and B773 equipment, and that you can't make up your mind which one is the better.

And now, as a "Delta pilot", you ask a question probably even 90% of Atlanta residents know the answer to.

So what's it to be....?

Resorting to insults is normally a clear indication that the debate is lost sir.

I can't believe this. I have stop starting threads on this forum because of old men who have NOTHING better to do then sit in front of their computers each day and see who's is bigger when it comes to aviation discussion. A.Net seriously needs to do something about this because its getting worse.

RE: ATL-MCO On A 777 Or A 764?

Who are you guys to question whether or not the original poster is a Delta Pilot? The question was why they use the planes on the route? Whether or not the guy really is a Delta pilot is irrelevant to the conversation, and this just turned into another bashing session.

And if you guys must know, I work for a regional airline, and I don't understand why we are flying CRJ's on some of the routes we fly them on. This situation is no different. Cut the guy some slack please.


One thing I will say on topic. Its amazing that we always dream about Widebody planes on domestic routes on this forum, because of too many narrowbodies congesting the skies, but when they do use a widebody on a domestic route, we look at them like they are nuts. You can't have it both ways guys.

My two-cents, who gives a flying F*** what is asked in this forum, some of use don't know exactly the same things that everyone else knows. It is interesting and it kills time while we are at work/school or in some cases just controls your lives.

Some would argue that's part of the problem. Do I really need to know minute by minute updates about North Dakota's aviation? Or do I really need to know the status of the IFE in DL's ex-TWA 757 fleet three times a week?

Agreed, but if your not interested you don't have to read. And my point was if someone askes a question they prolly don't know! And contrary to what some would want, you don't have to take a test to become apart of this community and people are gonna know heaps more than others about certain things.

Pilots aren't dumb and this isn't some obscure fact that only an aviation geek would know. Definitely not something obscure to someone in the industry.

In addition, the guy seems to have no idea when to use THEIR and THERE. Check his other posts!

Well George Bush, the discussion is a little pointless now since it has been discussed in about 10 different threads.
