I believe that this has been discussed before, but I did a search on it and couldn't come up with even a hint of this topic. It sparked my interest when I learned about an hour ago that DL has a non-stop flight from Atlanta to Barcelona.

So, this begs the question, what are all of the routes that DL flies from ATL, and from JFK? Also, if you could add in what aircraft type they are operated with, and their daily frequency, that'd be quite nice  Big grin.

Thanks to all that reply  Smile!

Yep, it's a long list alright. I 'm not certain about all, but you can add Dublin, Shannon, Amsterdam, London Gatwick, Frankfurt, Paris, Barcelona, Zurich, and I would imagine many, many others. Sorry I cant give you a more complete answer, but these are the ones I know of.

For what concerning Italy I can tell you that DL fly to Milan Malpensa and Rome Fiumicino from Atlanta and to Venice from JFK. I think there could be some other flights to Rome and Milan, but not from ATL or JFK.

Thanks everyone, especiialy N670UW, for that extensive list! I didn't realise that DL served that many destinations across the pond. Puts their Pacific service to shame  Big grin!

A side note, doesn't one of the CDG flights continue to Bombay, India? Is it daily?


Thanks again  Smile!

Yes, DL118 (JFK-CDG, 763) continues to BOM. The flight is daily.

Since the dropping of BA's LGW-JFK route, wouldn't DL do well in starting a daily service between these cities? I know MAN used to be served from JFK. Also a couple of years back there was a flight to LGW (daily) from Los Angeles and Boston. What happened to that?

It's a shame that the B767 is used on almost all the transatlantic routes now, i liked the days where the MD-11's and the L1011's would be operating them, a few years back. Things have certainly changed.

Thanks N670UW,that was great!And time-consuming. That's right,as of June 1st,there will be 4 daily ATL-LGW flights,all 763's.There must be a huge demand for seats to London in the summer to support that many LGW flights, 28X weekly;they did the same thing last summer I recall. I've always been curious to know what the loads are like on the JFK-Istanbul flights,anybody have a rough idea? Thanks,Tim

That list seems to be missing a 777.

There should be 5 transatlantic 777s, and the 3 that are NRT bound.

Neal-

The sole LGW 777 flight goes to a 763, and CVG-CDG and ATL-MXP go to 777s, therefore all 8 of Delta's 777s are accounted for. That sucks- they need at least 20  Big grin. Damn pilot contracts!

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

Upcoming changes:
From June 1:
ATL-LGW: 4x daily 767-300ER (currently 1 772; 2 763ER)
ATL-MXP: 1 daily 772 (currently 1 763ER)
JFK-ATH: 10X weekly (3 additional flights a week 763ER) - however, this comes at the expense of JFK-CDG (goes from 2x daily to 11x weekly - loss of 3 weekly flights to JFK-ATH)
CVG-CDG: switch to 772 from 763ER

From Aug 1:
ATL-MXP: reverts back to 763ER
ATL-CDG: goes from 1 772 / 1 763ER a day to double 772 daily

The 764's are used on high traffic domestic routes, they replaced the larger L-1011's.

The 777's are also used on the Pacific routes.

Delta only had 15 MD's at one time, and they only flew those to LGW and CDG, as capacity demanded. They practically started the ETOPs deal so they could use 767's transatlantic.

My neighbor asked what ETOPS meant an my other neighbor, tech-ops guy who runs simulators for DL said Engines Turn Or Passengers swim!  Laugh out loud

Any idea if/when DL might/plans to reinstate its JFK-TLV service?

They were flying their own metal on the route back about 10 years ago. It then reappeared briefly pre-9/11, only to be replaced with a code-share w/LY.

This has been discussed elsewhere plenty, but. . . considering that the loads on NYC-TLV are incredible (LY and CO are almost always loaded on their combined 8-10 flights each day), that this summer there will be something like a combined 18 flights a day (with Israir starting June 21) . . .

Why the heck wouldn't DL get in on this?

What kind of plane is Israir using to JFK?

I've wondered for a while........Especially since TW left the route. Perhaps it will reappear soon.

Well, is that still anything else about transatlantic flight to Europe? Maybe if they need to get more passengers are flying into LGW and remember with those days from 2 years ago of BOS-LGW is discontinue on June 1, 2002. Because this is very poorly with the load factors on their way to LGW.

I would like to see the JFK-TLV reinstated as well. However, I am more concerned that in the near term Delta should have added ATL-ATH for the olympics, as Delta has been the offical US airline for the Olympics and would probably want to keep the legacy going. Any reason why they did not add ATL-ATH?

25 L410Turbolet : New York: AMS 1x daily (763) ATH 1x daily (763) BCN 1x daily (763) BRU 1x daily (763) CDG 2x daily (763, 763) FCO 1x daily (763) AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF
26 Fanoftristars : I believe DL is the largest trans-Atlantic carrier. I seem to remember their press releases bragging of their trans-atlantic routes.
27 ScottysAir : Isn't not come back with JFK-TLV in near of the future. Maybe if DL want to make reinstated for after 9/11.
28 SESGDL : FanofTristars, Yes, Delta is the largest Trans-Atlantic US carrier. They have been since their takeover of Pan Am's routes in 1991. Jeremy
