This is great news for Song Air nonstop from FLL-LAS with twice daily roundtrip flight. It is wonderful to hear from Delta. Please do keep it up really need expanding to the west coast flight.  Smile

Seems like a pre-emptive strike against Jet Blue starting on this route. This whole Song buisiness looks like its directly aimed at Jet blue.

I wish we did the same thing against LUV when they started.

I agree, it's a preemptive strike against jetBlue. That is a route that easily could work for jetBlue with their expanded service at both LAS and FLL.

The first of 36 Boeing 757 aircraft to be used for the Song product was rolled-out today in Atlanta, painted with flourishes of lime-green on a white plane. The "flourish" is the original brand mark found in Song's logo. Song plans to utilize a fleet of 199-seat, all coach Boeing 757 aircraft at the average rate of one per week for 36 weeks beginning in April. Each aircraft will feature 33 inches of legroom, the most of any low fare product, and all leather seats. The aircraft interior is chambray blue, with accents of yellow, orange, purple and green, to create a fun and exciting travel environment.

In October, Song plans to introduce the world's most sophisticated in-flight entertainment system. Song is partnering with Matsushita Avionics Systems and EchoStar Communications Corporation (NASDAQ:DISH - News) and its DISH Network(TM) satellite TV service to provide a complement of on-board amenities, which when fully implemented will include: personal video monitors at every seat; all-digital, satellite broadcast programming; digitally streamed MP3 programming; pay-per-view programming available on demand; multi-player interactive games that allow play between passengers; and interactive iXplor moving map program with zoom capabilities and points of interest information and connecting gate information broadcast directly to personal in-seat video monitors.

i honestly think jetBlue could be in for it. i would fly Song just to keep my FF miles within delta. more options, FF miles, same amentines as JB, sounds like a winner to me.

It will be interesting how things go in the next few months and what destinations Song will fly to.

Jetblue for the last 3 months has been #1 in customer service by the DOT. Delta has been in the middle. One thing Delta HAS to do to make this work is customer service. Something they haven't been doing in a long while.
