I had heard about some really poor loads on this run...some flights only had 12 pax on it, less than a 25% load factor. I guess more people were staying at DFW than going to DAL.

More from Airwise.net:

Mar 13, 2003

Delta Connection flights from Dallas Love Field airport, operated by Atlantic South East Airlines, are to end from June 1 it was announced today.

Delta says it intends to concentrate services at its Dallas/Fort Worth hub where nearly 50 ASA flights will be added this spring.

"Discontinuing service at any airport is a difficult decision," said Sam Watts, ASA's vice president - Planning and Development. "However, in the current economic climate we must maximize revenue generating opportunities across the ASA system by focusing on markets with the greatest revenue and growth potential."

Passengers who have booked travel to or from Dallas Love Field after June 1 will be contacted by Delta reservations to re-arrange their schedules.

ASA inaugurated service between Atlanta and Dallas Love Field on July 1, 2000, with six daily nonstop flights using Bombardier CRJ200s. ASA's 17 team members at Love Field will be eligible for transfer to other ASA locations, most notably at the ASA hub at Dallas/Fort Worth.



Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

Not really a surprise. I've been on the DAL-ATL roundtrip twice, and it was never once was it even half full. Dallas-Atlanta and Dallas-Houston are two different animals, and while CO Express has all the success in the world on the DAL-IAH runs, DAL-ATL doesnt have the same market. That being said, I'm sure 95% of DL travelers out of DFW had no idea that you could fly ASA to ATL from DAL, there was very little advertising about the service.


America's chickens are coming home to rooooost!

I wouldn't be surprised to see DL maintain a presence in DAL via the CO codeshare though.

That could have been part of the problem.
