I'm curious as to how DL will be replacing mainline 757s as they get refit and sent over to Song. Will Song be purchasing used aircraft or expanding its fleet solely with aircraft taken from DL's mainline fleet? If that is the case, what will DL replace the 757s with? Are they a potential customer for the 739?

Many former Delta mainline 757 flights have been replaced by MD-88 and 737-800 aircraft. Likewise, quite a few former M88/738 flights out of ATL/CVG have been replaced by the 737-200's, which have been refitted for mainline operations. Some routes have seen decreases in capacity due to the equipment swaps.

Luv2fly....... I was thinking along the same line as you about the "balancing" act.... DL's flights will increase a little and Song's will increase equally.. but.. look at some of the pairings that Song is flying..... FLL-LAX , FLL-LAS. These are new, not existing routes that DL already flew. Obviously some new planes had to come into the fleet to operate these flights. Who knows what new pairs they will come up with as they expand.

Where did you get woth those flight status on their Song? Can you tell me about where did you even find one of pages for me? The load factors are pretty high on these flight from Florida to New York - JFK, LGA, & EWR. What are you about need added more expansion of Song out of FLL anytime soon? Thanks!
