Will maybe since DL is slightly expanding at LAX, will they step in and fill the void lift by WN on LAX-MSY? They could probably fill a 732/733, 738 or MD-88/90, I don't know about a 752 yet Tell me what you guys think
Maybe, but MSY-LAX might be a problem with the headwinds. The route would probably be flown with a 738, expecially since the 732's are on the way out. But I think DL could make a go of it.
Well, their 732s are -15 powered Advanced models which should have decent range. MSY-LAX would be at the end of that range, but a 733 or MD-90 would have no problem whatsoever, unless 10/28 gets shut down again

Quoting Iflyatldl (Reply 6): I can even remember National running in the 70's a DC-10 SAN-LAX-MSY, on to either TPA or MIA.
Yes those were the days weren't they? Sadly, long gone.
One thing about LAX-MSY is that it has always been a proven route. No matter what time of year or day of the week, you can count on that airplane being full. I think it's only a matter of time before DL (or AA) sees the oppurtunity and takes advantage of it.

Actually, I liked it the old way with UA running 2-3 flights and WN with their's.
