Are there any dc9s still flying?

What is runway separation?
Separate a departing aircraft from a preceding departing or arriving aircraft using the same runway by ensuring that it does not begin takeoff roll until: The other aircraft has departed and crossed the runway end or turned to avert any conflict. (See FIG 3-9-1.)
How can you tell if you have to change planes?
One way you can check is to look at the airline’s flight status for the flights on days before yours (e.g., check the flights now). If you see that the two legs are operated by different types of aircraft, then you know that you will have to change planes and likely change gates.
Is it cheaper to fly direct or with stops?
Unlike a layover, you do not need to disembark from the plane. Direct flights are usually cheaper than non-stop flights, and if you do not mind sitting for an hour while the plane is refueled or while passengers embark and disembark, a direct flight is often a great choice.
