Delta Air Lines has announced service to Lagos, Nigeria (LOS) from it's Atlanta hub: http://www.ajc.com/business/content/...ories/2007/02/21/0222bizlagos.html This will be the 3rd destination on the African subcontinent for DL. They also serve ACC and JNB, as well as DXB on the Arabian penninsula.

Great news for DL! I expected they'd announce LOS service sooner or later but I figured it would be from JFK rather than ATL. Still, I'd expect that this will likely be a great route for DL. Certainly, it will cut down flight times between the US and LOS. Obviously I'd expect a lot of traffic flying IAH-ATL-LOS.

DL is going after the African market like it has done to eastern Europe. DL can make practically any route work from ATL.

They will do well on this and have enough time to get all of the operational hurdles - which will be there - overcome.

Interesting that the article says that DL will use 767s with PTVs at all seats since the 763ER will have to be used because of the range and DL doesn't have PTVs in coach on those....

you will see DL continue to push the 767s into new ultra long-haul markets for the 767.

Great for DL for being the first major US airline to serve Africa in quite some time. Apparently they have worked out any safety issues to operate service to LOS.

Give it time my friend, perhaps it could go up to something better! 772ER? 787?

Keep in mind that many industry analysts rate Africa as a high growth and high profit potential region just as they do Asia. DL isn't sitting around waiting for a China route authority. They will take a good look at what works and just keep doing it. Thanks for all the replies!

It states in the article that Cairo is the biggest O&D market in Africa from ATL, if I understand it correctly. Is this a sign of things to come? Via JFK perhaps?

Looks like this will be the longest DL 763ER nonstop flight.

DL is deploying its 767s to many high growth int'l regions - Africa, South America, and Eastern Europe. all are strongly growing and DL is the only major carrier that serves Africa and Eastern Europe.

The Middle East is also fast growing and the 767 does have the range to fly there from the US.  Smile just think what DL can do if they put winglets on the 767s.

I don't know if you really want to call it middle east, more like Mediterranean, but the 763 can do JFK-TLV, which as many have said will happen eventually.

Does anybody know if the crew and aircraft will be overnighting in LOS, or will they both be getting the hell out of there as soon as possible for a safer location to overnight? I once read an article about how certain western carriers deemed LOS to be too much of a security risk for crew overnights. It went on to describe how flights would arrive, off-load passengers and cargo, and then the crew would ferry the aircraft to Accra to overnight, before a fresh crew would would ferry it back to LOS the next day for the return.

As long as Continental doesn't start Nigeria service I think Delta will make a killing on this. I work for the oil industry in Houston and I am sure we could fill up the business class section on a 767 just between the Exxon, Shell, BP, Chevron and Total. A lot of the Nigeria E&P activity takes place in Houston, and we are constantly sending people through AMS and CDG to Nigeria, so this would be much easier.

Cheers,

the operative phrase being "at this time". ATL-LOS is approx 200 miles further than JFK-TLV or CAI. obviously, DL has plans to equip their 767s for flights over 12 hrs in order to meet the requirements of their pilot contract. of course, the pilots are only to happy to see another long-haul flight.

I haven't seen the schedule but I'm sure the plane will turn around and leave in a couple hours but the crew will remain overnight...protected by armed guards.

From what I remember CO was supposed to start Lagos last year but decided not too due to the security and all of the under the table deals that had to take place to get things done. CO is not in the bribery/under the table deals game.

Good luck to Delta if they can get it done.

Lets just hope we don't get any bodies popping out of landing gear wells at ATL. That seams to be the greatest security risk to U.S. and European flag carriers going into Africa.

Im glad to see an American carrier taking the initiative of launching long haul flights nonstop from their US hubs to niche markets in Africa where there is good potential to make money.

If DL sees very high J class loads on this flight as well as high fare paying pax in Economy class over its first year of operations, then I wouldnt be surprised to see them use the larger B 772ER for this route after the B 772LRs start arriving.

If I remember correctly, didn't CO hold up Virgin Nigeria's operating license to operate into the U.S.? Something to do with Heathrow slots...

If Delta can make ATL-LOS work, then maybe we'll see CO eventually do IAH-LOS or IAH-EWR-LOS.

Congrats to Delta for making this work!!

I believe CO and Virgin Nigeria have been bickering over the NYC-LOS route for a while. CO opposing Virgin Nigeria on the basis of the degree of British ownership in Virgin Nigeria. Then Nigeria denied CO as retaliation. So while CO and Virgin Nigeria fought over NYC-LOS, DL decided to open ATL-LOS....a route no one was disputing and didn't become part of a political battle. Smart if you ask me.
