My guess is that the load planner (probably in Atlanta) made a mistake with his/her calculations regarding WB or CG, and didn't realize it until after the plane was airborne.

Yes, those are certainly nice. I believe that this is a repo flight - coming into DTW from Asia, then going from ATL to either Asia or Dubai.

That is all 100% correct. However, there are a few issues with some of it.

Delta has publicly stated that it will not do prop flying in the near-term due to passenger preferences.

If I recall correctly, Delta will retire/store/return all CRJ200's by 2014(?).

My assumption is that they will backfill those routes with larger/less frequent aircraft.

Just for the record, I am not with Delta anymore - hence "used to be".

That came to my mind also. I believe that Delta's contract with ALPA allows for unlimited 50 seat flying. However, the contract has a scope clause which limits the 76-seat flying (E170/CRJ70/90) to a...

What he meant by that was a study to determine, whether markets that now only have say 10x daily CRJ service can survive a mix of 5x mainline/larger gauge DCI.
