In June 1982 I flew RC from Minneapolis to Dallas-Fort Worth (with a stop in Kansas City-MCI) aboard MD-82 N301RC (and return a week later; same aircraft).
When I booked the trip several months earlier the flights were scheduled with DC9-50 equipment but were upgraded to the MD-82 following the bankruptcy of Braniff (May 1982) to provide additional capacity.
I did not know about the change of aircraft until arriving at the gate in MSP and seeing the MD-82 aircraft
