The past year and a half has been brutal for so many of us who used to fly Delta on a week-by-week basis. We miss all the amazing Delta people who make our travels a joy and a pleasure. That and the “Delta Difference” i.e. almost instant phone service on the Diamond Line and amazingly good food (even on domestic flights) and so much more.
Now that many of us are back up in the air we still seem to be missing much of what Delta was pre COVID with food consisting of a snack box and often times hours of hold time to get a live rep to help us.
However, the one thing we have not missed at all has been the awful and torturous CRJ200s that Delta has said they are doing away with “earlier than previously scheduled” per their SEC filings (i.e. by December of 2023 at the latest).
touching note one pilot left behind when they parked a jet last year in the desert. It reads:
Hey Pilots –
It’s March 22nd and we just arrived from ATL. So happy to see so many of this horrid fleet of CRJ200s here in the desert.
If you are here to pick it up then things have gone horribly wrong!
It seems nothing has changed and rather than this bird being turned into soda cans you have to suffer flying it again.
Please apologize to the loyal Delta passengers that it is back in service again. 🙁

Capt Ned, I salute you and share your feeling to the core. I, too, had dreamed, during the long lockdown, that I would be sipping Coke Zero out of the aluminum that these horrid birds were made of – not back in the air flying them once again.
Now clearly this post is 100% made up fiction and if the note above has any resemblance to the real touching note a real Delta captain left on a mainline jet – that is just pure coincidence.
Are you ready to fly again? – René
