My Delta itinerary tells me that I’m flying on a 737-200 Monday night from Atlanta to Hartford, flight No. 1756. This flight is usually operated by an MD-88, but the seatmap sure enough has 3-3 seating, not 3-2.

I thought all the -200s had been melted into beer cans or sold off to maintenance-challenged airlines in places nobody has ever heard of.

If it is a -200, that would be pretty cool, since I haven’t flown on a JT8-powered 73 in about 25 years, and I kind of miss the noise and smoke of those long, skinny, low-bypass engines under the wing.

But maybe it’s just a mislabled 737-700. Ho-hum.

Does anybody have a guess?
