Seems like DL loves sending their CRJ fleet into MDW. Lets see what FL does in response to DL entering the route. So that brings DL flights into MDW up to 15 I think.

Perhaps this is Delta's way of saying thank you for FL's new ATL-DAB flights.

lets not forget that AA and UA have a couple flights a day to the 'other' Chicago airport as well. BOS-CHI might becoming a bit overserved. And yes, with all those other flights in the market why CRJs. I suppose DL has enough FFers in BOS to stay with DL???

YHZ, YFC, YQB and BDA, though except the latter, those would probably not work from CVG.

This is (at least) the second time DL has tried Boston - Chicago. They added BOS-ORD in the mid '80s with 727s; the flight didn't last very long. Has DL tried this market since then?

Well, as I read the release I have to chuckle at the phrase, 'Boston is one of three Delta focus cities.' Not a whole lot of focusin' going on at that DL terminal in Boston lately. Over the past couple years they've done a whole lot of downsizing in terms of flights and (especially) capacity. 763s and 764s were pretty common at Logan; you won't find either there now. Now it's a bunch of 737s and a handful of 757s. That constitutes a 'focus city???'

It was quite hopping this morning around 730 a.m. Coach line for check-in had about 150 people in it, another 150 people at regular security and about 40 people at Priority Security...was a miracle I arrived at the airport at 7:29 and made my 8 a.m. to ATL (yes, that included going through the F/Medallion lines at check-in and security).

Why would DL start BOS-MDW instead of (or before) BOS-ORD? Slot issues? I'd assume this would be a business-heavy route that would attract a premium, and MDW is....MDW. Granted, they need to compete with FL, but that doesn't mean they have to fly out of the same airport. I know that if I had to go to BOS from Chicago I'd fly ORD-CVG-BOS to avoid MDW.

MDW is probably more convenient to many business travellers and not subject to ATC delays to the same degree as ORD.

I know, the DL BOS focus city is rather pitiful. I miss those 763s from ATL. They would probably have more int'll service in BOS had the bureaucrats at assport put customs in A.

To tell you guys the truth I'm surprised that DL hasn't done any JFK stuff. Fl to Ewr is always full. TZ to LGA is always full seems like a JFK crj flight x3 daily wouldn't be bad.

Hard to say. LGA is being considered a co-terminal to JFK, meaning not its own hub/focus city. TPA cannot really be considered a focus city anymore, and LAX seems to already be considered a hub again within DL, leaving the other two focus cities alongside BOS to be MCO and FLL, though that still leaves out DCA as well as CMH.

I would think LAX, BOS, and I guess MCO are the DL 'focus' cities. ATL, CVG, JFK, and SLC being the true 'hubs.'

Why wouldn't you fly nonstop MDW-BOS on DL? Avoid MDW? If anything I would avoid ORD. I'm from the south suburbs and I would much rather fly nonstop to BOS and drive 30 min. to MDW instead of driving an hour to ORD and then connect in CVG.
