Chicago seems like quite the 2nd hub in 1979

Well, there is a difference between an unscheduled/emergency landing at a location en-route leading to the requirement for a "second" take off for that same flight; and a take-off resulting from scheduled en-route stop(s).

Presumably, the law requires a safety briefing for all "normal" take-offs, regardless of whether or not any new passengers have actually joined the aircraft at that stop.

The law may not similarly require that same full safety briefing when making a second, unscheduled take off on the same journey with the same passengers, particularly if the passengers did not actually leave the plane during that stop.

Or it may simply have been an oversight on the part of the staff in view of the unusual circumstances.

ORD was basically a DL Focus City until the late 1980s. Also I think DL technically flew MEM-SJU for a bit when the MEM hub was still around.

2007 ... so was that during or right after they were in bankruptcy?

They exited ch. 11 in April 2007. Almost immediately after the new logo and merger with NW were announced.

Great timetable from 1978 and there is the elusive route! This was the heyday of deregulation in the late Carter administration, when each airline was trying to remake its legacy routes into a network. You can also see Delta adding missing spokes from Atlanta. I remember making a series of maps of each airlines deregulated route filings back then for my boss, who managed a west coast airport. The craziest expansions were by Braniff, all over everywhere, no real focus on Dallas.

Those timetables were always handy, they used similar typeface and format right into the early 1990s.

At one point this was operated by a 767. In fact it may have even been an L-1011 at one point.

The merger was not announced until 2008. Way after Delta exited Ch 11.

from the Old Timers' Airline/Airliner Quiz and Discussion thread in Nov 2017, Delta indeed ran the TriStar on the MIA<-->FLL route in 1979
