IND has service to many and most hubs in the US..one of the hubs that i noticed that are not served from IND is SLC. Delta already serves ATL and CVG from IND. WOuldn't SLC be a good move considering they would be the only airline to serve SLC?
The next generation of aircraft is just around the corner!

I think a big question will be- can they be competitive with a CRJ on this route. I'm assuming most people flying from IND will be connecting in SLC. when they connect they'll probably be getting on another CRJ. with the higher seat mile costs of CRJs, I would question whether DL could make money competing without a premium cabin against other majors flying mainline equipment on 1 or both segemnts (or their own flights through DFW and CVG)
