Wow, I figured this would replace FSD-CVG, but it's an addition. The times aren't the best for business travelers in either direction but hey, I'm sure FSD will take it. What's interesting is FSD had no flights to any DL hubs in 2004 and now they will have three in August. FSD-CVG was added in '05 as a SCASD grant, and DL announced SLC-FSD a couple months ago.
Next flights: WN DSM-LAS-PHX, US PHX-SJD. Return: US SJD-PHX, WN PHX-MDW-DSM
I'm not seeing seasonal, this looks like a daily year round service.
Guess it's not too suprising that this is being started, FSD was I think one of the last 3 CVG markets that did not have ATL service. the other two are HTS and SCE (Huntington WV and Satte College PA) I am wondering how long it will be before those cities get ATL service as well.
I think this will be a good route for FSD. I am surprised with FSD being sort of a strong "heartland" market for NW that NW hasn't served FSD via their MEM hub but I suppose they could code share with DL on the ATL route.
