A while back, Delta announced several new European destinations including expanding their existing service from JFK-NCE to include ATL-NCE.
This flight is to begin May 9, 2006. But I looked in their online schedule and after June 1, 2006 the service is no longer available. Anyone know why they are only running this service for less than a month? Or has their schedule not been updated?

Quoting YULMRS (Reply 6): Will the service be seasonal or year round ? Will they codeshare with AF ?
ATL-NCE will be seasonal. Yes, AF will also be codesharing on the ATL-NCE flight; they already are on the JFK-NCE.
Quoting VS346 (Reply 3): How are these routes selling? I for one am looking to book on the ATL-NCE flight. It's much more attractive than having to stop in CDG or AMS.
I don't have any inside info on these though NCE always sells well during the summer, especially up front in J (you will notice that the "I" inventory, which is for discounted Business fares, is pretty much Zeroed out on these NCE flights during the peak summer season). I just hope that the new ATL-NCE helps divert some of the connecting traffic from other cities to ATL instead of JFK, thereby freeing up some more J seats on the JFK-NCE for upgrades!
