It doesn't matter anyway. It's too little too late for Gogo since they're about to kick the bucket.

I would think they would fuel the plane to go to DTW. But as of now they got it set for ATL. They could probably get away with it seeing how that time of the morning there should not be many flights...

I would rather not see these birds scrapped too but the reality is these airframes will never return to service for DL. Therefore it makes no sense to store any additional frames. Delta is going to...

Delta learned their lesson once upon a time when a new start up airline called Value Jet bought Delta's DC-9-30's. Fast forward to now, that airline is called AirTran Airways for now. Delta would...

I was thinking more along the lines of domestic services. Everytime I go through DTW, there's tons of empty narrowbody gates that just sit unused it seems.

Another thing to think about is that awesome, way underutilized facility that just opened in 2003 over in DTW.

I got kicked off once tonight. Also, I noticed they have a limit on the number of people that can join up. A couple people around me weren't able to log in because too many people were on at once.

I never really understood why Delta chose the Terminal 2 space over the Terminal 3 gates. T2 is a dump in comparison to what they had.

The Q is obviously superior in comfort but you also have to remember that it is not the same airplane at all. Aren't the Q's some 70 seats or so? So a real side by side comparison would be like a...

I think the comment about having the oldest average fleet means that while the -9's will eventually be retired, holding onto the rest of the Mad Dog fleet, and our older Boeings will keep us with an...

The point the OP is trying to make is the DTW ground crews are probably the worst in the DL system. It's nothing new to wait what seems like an extended period of time for the crew to show up. I've...

If they do change their minds, then it better be to buy out the leases and send the airplanes to a scrap yard because otherwise it would not surprise me if a large southern based airline wouldn't...

So the name plate inside might not say DC-9-88 but you can't argue the fact that an MD-88 is just a stretched DC-9-50 with more modern engines and cockpit. It's the same tube, wing design, and...

There's nothing wrong with using a camera below 10,000 feet. Some FA's are picky about it so I suppose just don't let them catch you in the act that's all.

MD's are louder up front, yes, but it's not engine noise at least. The noise you hear up front doesn't bother me quite that much honestly, seeing how it's just air.

Just for the record, an MD-88/90 is a DC-9 (DC9-88/DC-9-90). Sounds to me like what you just said is all just trying to bash DL.

Retirement of the DC-9-50 series would be a more realistic expectation from 2015-2019. I will say though that the -50 is about the same performance wise and is not really much older than the MD-88....
