Business Travelers Rejoice! Delta Links Key Markets With New Point-to-Point Service

Monday July 24, 2:41 pm ET

No connections, no middle seats make business travel a breeze

ATLANTA, July 24, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Business travel will be more convenient this fall as Delta Air Lines adds new point-to-point flights between Boston and Dayton, Ohio; and between Jacksonville and Pensacola, Fla. effective Sept. 11, 2006. Delta Connection carrier Comair will operate one daily round-trip flight in each market using quiet and comfortable Bombardier regional jets.

Additionally, customers in Savannah, Ga. will benefit from new Saturday service to Washington, D.C., effective Sept. 16, 2006, operated by Delta Connection carrier Atlantic Southeast Airlines.

``As the only airline to offer service to customers in all 50 states, Delta is pleased to continue expanding its domestic footprint by offering convenient nonstop flights between popular business destinations,'' said Bob Cortelyou, vice president - Network Planning at Delta. ``The new service marks our 12th point-to-point market within Florida; 13th destination from the nation's capital and 28th city from Boston.''

In total, Delta has now added more than 80 new domestic routes since last fall as it restructures its network to improve customers' options for travel throughout the United States. Delta is the largest U.S. airline in terms of destinations served.

To celebrate the new service, for a limited time, Delta is offering customers special introductory fares between $79 and $99 one way, based on a round-trip purchase. Tickets must be purchased by Aug. 15 and travel completed by Nov. 7 -- there are no blackout dates.

From what I can tell, that thread was about one specific route. It wasn't until near the end that it morphed into a bigger topic by linking to the press release. Anyone who had started reading through it, or who did a search by topic, would have assumed it didn't include any information about BOS-DAY or DCA-SAV.

Or are we supposed to read every damn thread to make sure a link wasn't included in reply 163???

Then you know that the press release was about more than just JAX-PNS, right? And just maybe a new thread, illustrating the broader service announcements, might have been in order?

I'll never get the anger that some people have over who posted what first? Especially with someone like KarlB737 who is so good about sharing information with the group.

yeah, they are only convenient if you are flying one way.............you cant do any day trips on the non-stops...........almost seems like it defeats the purpose.

DL filed with the DOT for daily DCA-SAV but were rejected. I guess this is to show they are still interested in the route. Are they able to file again?

DL needs to start RSW-TLH already. A 5-6 hr drive, depending on whose driving and how many q-tips are going 50mph in the left lane.

While Cincinnatians will undoubtedly continue to use DAY as a low fare alternative, something tells me this is more of a pre-emptive swipe at jetBlue in Columbus. The flight times for Comair's BOS-DAY-BOS service will nearly match jetBlue's BOS-CMH-BOS and they have also matched jetBlue's fares from Columbus. Travelers flock from both Columbus to Dayton (for low fares from AirTran and Frontier) and from Dayton to Columbus (for cheap travel provided by Southwest, America West, and now jetBlue), so it seems to me that Delta is trying to retain as much of the market as they can and persuade people not to make the drive over to Columbus to fly jetBlue to Boston.

The have valid points in that the little jets are quiet, and do only have aisle and window seats ...

However : comfortable? Have the people who write these things actually flown on 'em?

Good thing those are short flights ...

(don't get me wrong, I don't personally have any beef with the little planes... then again, I fit in the things, although I still can't see outside w/out causing a crick in the neck ... guys larger than me, I have no idea how they cope ...)

Now when they start running the E170s on these routes ... then we're talkin' !

Airtran has also been getting bigger in BOS, their operation in DAY just added a third BWI service, in addition to 5x to ATL, and 1x to MCO.

DL connection already offers 3x daily CMH to BOS service.

Alot of people from the Southern Ohio/Greater Cincinnati area are also loyal Delta flyers from work, and the connections out of CVG. This is another way to cut down on connecting traffic in CVG, and boost yields, while we all scramble around for more SkyMiles.

Wrong DAL767400ER

You have misjudged your fellow ANetter.

I always do several searches prior to a new post to make sure I'm not duplicating another post. I consider it a courtesy to the other members here who I respect for their knowledge of the industry and their hard work in it.

My emphasis in this thread having noted the "DL To Start JAX-PNS" thread is in its title.

The avenue by which some airlines are heading on some occasions... that being "Point to Point" which differs from the emphasis in the other thread signaling a new specific route.

Northwest did alot of this point to point action last fall in Michigan and Indiana. Depending on the finances of Northwest this fall I fully expect to see that kind of thing again this year.

PlanesNTrains is quite right on this matter.

Enough said on this. All is forgiven and forgotten.

Two weeks advance purchase CVG-BOS-CVG is $409 compared to $79 each way from DAY. I think $409 is steep, I realize DL must make up for the loss of operating a $79 OW fare.

Also, I would expect FL to announce DAY-BOS service very soon.

*looks skyward* "thank you!"  bigthumbsup 

Unfortunately, I won't be living in Boston anymore when this starts up. DAY was only about a 15 minute longer drive from our house in the northern cincy suburbs, and I went there a bunch of times just because it was cheaper. Even when I had to fly back THROUGH Cincinnati to get to Boston.

About Friggin Time....thats all I can say, saddly a little too late for me  Sad

Only once some airline relinquishes it's slots for a route, otherwise no, as there are no slots available, and I don't know whether the DOT is contemplating allowing more movements at DCA anytime soon.

Doubtful. DL has cut back so much at RSW, they sure won't be adding any new p2p service, sorry.
