Thursday, 10/10/2013 - Delta Airlines' first 717 arrives in Atlanta from Miami, better late than never. It was a day when 2 new aircraft deliveries were expected. This 717 as well as Delta's 2nd 739 out of BFI. Both flights were plagued by frustrating delays thru the afternoon. Luckily for me a FedEx DC-10 helped pass the time. Last I heard on the 739 was a 10:20P arrival time. They should be here by now.
Let us all rejoice at this new aircraft's arrival. Marvel at it. And be excited by it. For 1 year from now, they will be as common & unremarkable as the MD-90
