Delta has always had more class
This brings up an interesting prospect.. Is there a freighter option for the MD80/MD90/B717? I ask, because that could give the aircraft a second life, similar to the B737BCFs If the other large aircrafts at that time (B727, B737, etc.) could be converted to freighters, could not the MD80 series as well?
Yes. Some MD-80s have been re-purposed to freighter life. I just saw one recently at the Smyrna, TN Airport (MQY) that had flown in from Mexico.

See quite a few -80’s, -83’s here @ TCL flying in parts for the Mercedes Benz plant in Vance (Tuscaloosa), AL. Will also see the occasional 727. Matter of Fact, a 727 had it’s nose wheel gear collapse upon landing @ TCL several months ago.

A missionary group I’ve worked with is using its DC-3’s to fly supplies to MHH. If you can, they need donations and funds.

The airport there already has tons of supplies sitting out in the open, nearly half perishable, going nowhere. The people who needed the supplies have mostly left the islands now, not intending to return.
