    Default DL to Terminate MD's from the Fleet. Finally....

    Delta's MD-88s and MD-90s will depart on their last scheduled revenue flights on June 2, as Delta officially retires the "Mad Dog" jets from the fleet.
    In a nod to the T-tail jet's name, Delta Flight 88, a McDonnell Douglas MD-88, will depart on its last scheduled revenue flight on the morning of Tuesday, June 2, from Washington-Dulles International Airport to our hub in Atlanta. Earlier that same morning, Delta Flight 90, operated by an MD-90 aircraft, will fly from Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston to ATL.
    Once on the ground in Atlanta, the aircraft will join several other MD-88s and MD-90s as they fly to Blytheville, Ark., where they will be officially retired from the fleet. One MD-88 will remain in Atlanta and is scheduled to depart to Blytheville on June 3, to mark the official end of the MD-series jets at Delta.

    Too bad they won't be keeping one at the flight museum. Sad to see the 777 leaving as well.
