ASA runs EV4249 a 0918 dept to YYZ. This flt ran today 26SEP - on time.

Yesterday, 25SEP, it was cancelled due to a ground delay program for ATL (or poss YYZ - although I doubt that.) This could have been spill over from the 24SEP ATL weather/ATC nightmare.

I've often wondered why 2 Delta Connection carriers - ASA and Comair, fly ATL-YYZ.

Good question... this practice dates back to the Comair strike of several years ago. DL decided not to carry all its eggs in one basket, so to speak. Thus, it became more commonplace to see more than one DL connection carrier on a given route.

The practice actually decreases the flexibility of the schedule since it became more difficult to "borrow" an aircraft to replace one disabled for mechanical reasons etc.
