DL will start 1xper week 757 service routing JFK-STT. This starts on 3/7/07, just noticed this under the new routes section on delta.com. A nice addition to the growing DL international hub at JFK.

I remember the good old days when during the peak season there would be five daily flights from NY to STT, 2 daily Pan Am flights (727, A300), 2 daily AA flights (727, A300) and one daily CO flight (727/A300).

Back then all those flights stopped in St.Croix, now none of them stop at St.Croix. Im surprised CO's EWR-STT flight does not stop at St.Croix anymore, located next to the airport on St.Croix is the Hess Refinery which is one of the largest oil refineries in the World. Hess Oil Company is headquarted in Woodbridge New Jersey three Exits South of EWR along the Turnpike.

ST.John and St.Thomas are one of my favorite places, I've been there on vacation 4-5 times. It got hit hard by a Huricane in the Mid-'90s and it's taken a while to come back but hopefully it will continue to grow in popularity as a destination other than just day cruise folks.

I think DL might have very briefly in the mid '90s had a MCO-STT flight, hopefully someone like B6 would re-launch MCO-STT.

While I'm not surprised by this routing, I wonder why they are starting the route in March - near the end of the winter season. Although March and April are still quite busy to the Virgin Islands, demand and fares lower. This is like starting a route to Europe in Late september... odd timing.

This is a route that I think both DL and B6 would do very well on.

Delta has flown this route in the past. I believe it was around 1995.

I am surprised that STX does not have more service to the mainland. As indicated above, the refinery near the airport draws a good amount of business traffic and the island is a wonderful place to vacation. In the past, I believe there were runway length issues that were recently rectified.

Nice addition. Not much capacity for starters, but nice to see a non-transatlantic destination added from JFK by DL  Wink .

Good catch! That kind of just slipped in there - didn't see any press releases or announcements for it...

It would be nice to see DL add a few Central American flts from out of JFK.
