I flew DL 2288 from Atlanta to Boston yesterday. It was listed as being on a 737-800, but was actually an MD-90.




Not sure where the 737 came from. That flight was a 757 until mid-December when it switched to the MD90. Since the switch, it was flown as a 757 only once.

Of course, half the passengers wouldn't have known the difference. The Medallions only because the upgrade is harder to get on the 737!

Delta's schedule is constantly changing. Lots of small time changes, flight number changes, or equipment changes.

According to DELTA they have 16 MD-90 airraft.







The engines are really something. I rode in one of TWA's and taking off from STL lightly loaded I think we were at 3000' before we got to the far end of the runway.

Yep. Changes all the time. I just looked at the past two weeks. 757's changed to MD90s. No 737s.

I've seen the same BNA-ATL flight change from a DC9 to a CRJ-700 to an A319 over the span of about six weeks.

I'll take the DC9/MD88/MD90 over the 737/A319. The ratio of first class seats to economy seats is too low making the upgrades a lot harder to get.
