I know that many don't share my opinion, but I love the MD80, and so it makes me sad that American has announced the end of MD80 revenue service. September 4th will be the last flight - Flight 80 - From DFW to ORD. The MD80 was the first airplane I ever flew on and I still think that they are beautiful birds. The school I work and study at is on the departure and approach paths for STL, and I always look up when I hear the characteristic MD80 roar. I'm considering heading down to DFW on the 3rd and catching the last flight to ORD in the morning. Would anybody want to meet up in Dallas, grab dinner, and join?
