Delta Flight 349 Delayed: Delays 1949

Wed Aug 01, 2001 1:27 am

the last L-1011 is delayed:

FLIGHT 349
EST dept. Atlanta 1:00pm
EST arr MCO: 2:22

Flight 1949
EST dept. MCO: 3:15
EST arr. ATL: 4:45

DELTA (I THINK) WANTS TO KEEP THEIR L-1011'S IN SERVICE AS LONG AS POSSIBLE! the plane has been at the gate for over 2 hours now!

NEXT FLIGHT: FLL-ATL-HPN on FL

The weather in Orlando isn't pretty. It doesn't look like the rain will be ending for another 2-4 hours and even when it does clear it will still be overcast. The serious weather has passed so it most likely will just be very light rain unless the daytime heating here triggers off some t-storms. Looks like departure is now set to 3:45 per MCO's flight board.

GOOD NEWS!!! THE FLIGHT IS READY FOR DEPARTURE!

This means that it will be leaving the gate shortly! (if it hasn't already)
also, MCO's weather is downgraded to mist!

Flair were you inside the terminal or outside somewhere? If you were in their did they have a banner with this is Dl's last L101 flight or something to that matter, what went on in the terminal if you were their?

Anyone at MCO? Did 1949 take off yet? The flight tracker has it messed up...it says it arrives at 3:15 but it is delayed...maybe they won't figure it out in time

It's now 1115PM in Brussels, which is 515PM Atlanta time. If all of the above information is correct, then flight 1949 must be at the gate in Atlanta already. The L-1011 era at Delta has now ended. As of tomorrow, Aug 1st 2001, flight 1949 is a 767-400.
Anyway, thanks for the update. Smile
