Today Delta Connection carrier ASA applied with DOT to replace Delta's one daily Los Angeles-Guadalajara 738 flight with two daily ASA CRJ-700 flights around March 2006.

Docket:
http://dms.dot.gov/search/document.c...m?documentid=374392&docketid=23174

Although the US-Mexico air treaty was recently liberalized to allow up to three US and three Mexican airlines per US-Mexico route, this rule only applies to select resort destinations. Guadalajara is still a 2-carrier route. ASA's application approval, however, is not assured, even though this might just seem like a "simple" switch from mainline to connection. Since Delta and ASA are still seperate airlines, Delta must give-up their LAX-GDL route authority, they can't just transfer it to ASA. Therefore, any other US airline is able to apply for this route, which is the fourth busiest US-Mexico city pair, after Miami-Mexico City, New York City-Mexico City, and Los Angeles-Mexico City.

Given the population of GDL natives in the Los Angeles area, I don't know why anyone would use an RJ on the route. I would like to see United, American or Frontier pick the route up with mainline aircraft.

Per mention in the application unless DOT grants the exempted authority to ASA specifically, DL will not be dropping the route and would continue to operate a single flight with its presently held authority.

Flying LAX-GDL with a CRJ is kinda nuts anyways, especially considering the high volume of baggage the route would produce.

Poor Delta tough.. I dont think they have a clue as to what they want to do in Mexico. First they destroy much of old Western's few remaining routes, then they apply for a slew of new city pairs like LAX-CZM, and now are back in the retrenching mode again.

- I totally agree. A huge amount of the traffic to Mexico is VFR, and that includes lots of baggage!!

AA used to serve LAX-GDL. I wonder if they will jump back into the market. Does anybody know why they discontinued the service?
