25 years of MaDDogs

This past April, Delta’s MD-88s reached 25 years in operation. Delta’s Laura M takes a look back at when Delta received its first MD-88.

It was on April 1, 1987, that the first “MaDDog” in Delta’s livery took to the skies with revenue passengers. Ronald Reagan was President; Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” was at the top of the record charts; “Cheers” was a ratings leader on television and “Lethal Weapon” was a huge box office smash.

Mobile app helps report unfair airport screeners

    I think airport should take care of this issue because it’s very inconvenient if you’re unable to take calls on the plane.
