Delta Connection carrier Comair, a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Air Lines, has requested gate facilities at Dallas Love Field for Delta Connection regional jet service to Delta hubs as early as June 2000. All service would be provided with 50-seat Canadair Regional Jets.
If Delta receives permission from authorities this may mean that DL will now have a small upper hand on American. 2 Airports vs. 1.

How about this....the Delta/Comair do "Delta Express" products??? Please, don't have this Delta/Comair's "Delta Express" go to Orlando....do more of point to point routes like Southwest. Maybe this "Delta Express" can setup a hub at Love?

There is not enough facilities at Love to allow for a "Delta Express" hub. Right now, I'm not sure where the city will even come up with gates for just a few DL operations unless they loosen some of the use restrictions placed on the other concourse.

In addition to the question of gates/facilites for a DL Xpress hub, one would have to question the rationale behind such a move. Most of the low-yield tourist traffic to Florida is from the Northeast and only the Northeast; this is why DLX is currently positioned where it is and is doing quite comfortably. A hub at DAL would be nearly 100% dependent on O&D traffic---a market which simply doesn't exist. Much better for DL and AA to stick to DFW for these routes and get those feeders to help out.
