Due curiousity about Delta's DFW pullout, I was randomly pulling up Delta's schedule on February 1, 2005 from Phoenix to Salt Lake City. I found 14 daily nonstops, one of which was a mainline 738, the remaining 13 were a mixture of CRJs and CR7s. In most cases, the flights run hourly. Is that a realistic expectation for Delta to expect that much O&D traffic between the two cities? Let's not forget HP and WN have a significant share of the market too.

I was actually noticing this myself. That seems like a lot more seats than necessary. Sounds like Delta would rather have frequency than anything else. On top of Delta's 13 CRJ's and one 737, Southwest has 7 737's daily, and HP has 1 A320, 3 A319's, and 4 CRJ's.
That's a lof of traffic each way. Great for the consumer though

In terms of capacity, that will put PHX-SLC with 840 daily seats. I don't think there will be any problem selling that amount of seats. As it is right now, the RJ flights between PHX-SLC are always oversold.
