Quoting Pe@rson (Reply 2): When I flew DL ATL-LGW (772) a few years ago during the winter, it was probably less than half full.
How cheap do they discount this route in the winter? I'm possibly going to do a BOS-London trip this winter, and would like to fly DL if possible--it would be nice to try and do a SkyMiles upgrade to BizElite.

I'm flying LGW-ATL in 2 weeks and checking the seat plan shows a pretty full aircraft. I'm not sure how representative of the actual occupancy this is, but it does show, booking wise anyway, that they are doing reasonably well.
Incidentally, I've had to take DL to task for changing our flight itinery no less than 5 times since we booked. Now, instead of the 763's out and back, and 763/752 ATL-SLC-ATL, we've got 738's on the internal trips, and seats in the last row. Why they offered us a choice in the first place is beyond me. I just hope the inflight service doesnt reflect this. My wife thinks it is because airlines tend to load parties from the rear.
Whatever, I'm looking forward to 9 days in the States and taking lots of pics.
