My station has and still sees a lot of MD-88s and 90s. Feel like theyíll be there until the bitter end. Will be interesting to see what eventually replaces them.

I still disagree. Aeroflot is a Russian airline. Russia in winter conjures up images of deep freezes, tons of snow, Siberian tundra, etc. - the likes of which are more similar to Canada, Alaska, and...

I am of the mindset that the level of ATL preparation is not a mistake, so no, I donít expect more. I see it as no different than if I lived in Atlanta and a couple inches of snow fell and the roads...
