Should be interesting to hear. This seems about the right time. DL made the BOM and ACC announcements last June, but I'm sure this year's announcements were contingent on the outcome of the China proceedings.

There's another thread on here (can't find it at the moment) saying that Secretary Peters will be in Atlanta on Tuesday to personally tell Anderson that Delta landed one of the China route authorities (or both possibly we don't know the exact details yet).

CVG does indeed have a decent European network (CDG, LGW, FRA, AMS, FCO) but thats really as far as it has gone unfortunately, 5 cities in Europe max. Back in the day, Brussels and Zurich were also in there before AMS and FCO were opened up. Sabena ran the Brussels route with 747's even, and Swissair was a codeshare on the Zurich flights (and they even tinkered putting their own metal on the route at some point I think). Heck, we even had 2x daily London flights at one point, and 2x daily to CDG, one on AF and one on DL.

These routes have been around (at least the first 3) for a while now and have been good money makers for DL. Perhaps expansion to another continent from CVG would work. We get CUN service but only a few frequencies a week so they could possibly take that to daily.

Back in 2000 or so, back when Delta first applied for China route authority (ages ago it seems), they wanted to run 3x weekly service to Beijing from CVG (the application was 7x weekly JFK>PEK service and 3x weekly CVG>PEK service. There were 10 frequencies a week up for grabs). Needless to say it never went anywhere, but if they went for it back then there has to be at least some demand through and from CVG to Asia. Granted, back then it was before 9/11, and before DL "right-sized" the Cincinnati hub, which I still don't even know was a good idea or not. NRT, or ICN would probably get at least SOME decent loads if they went for those.

Here is the article from back in the day on the application: http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_pwwi/is_200002/ai_mark06004355

SLC is going to get European service when CDG opens up for them.

Can't happen. All USA-Colombia air frequencies are used up. Hopefully this will change soon, because Colombia might expand their bilateral with the US.

Thought I read on another thread that a new bilateral had been signed and that new frequencies are being permitted.

Anyway, just thought that would be a good new route on either new 737-700 or 757 aircraft.

It is looking likely, but I'm not sure it is official yet. What is happening is that Barranquilla will be "Open Skies", so anybody can fly to BAQ at any frequencies. This means AA's seven MIA-BAQ flights go beyond the bilatteral, and AA will free up seven USA-Colombia frequencies. However, AA has first dibs to use them, and they will find use for them. I think that USA-Colombia will expand by at least fourteen, maybe 21 frequencies. If there are 21 free ones, Spirit and Delta will probably take them. I could see Delta getting between 7-10 and Spirit getting between 14-18.

Edit: Nevermind. Correct, it has been signed. Good news.

If you really need to place blame, how about blaming the BOS market? If it was a better opportunity Delta would serve it. It's just not big enough, or high-yielding enough when considering all the existing competition at BOS and opportunities at JFK & ATL.

How do you figure? BOS is a larger market to Europe than ATL is. You honestly believe that ATL is a high yielding market to Europe? JFK sure is. ATL and their large European network lives from lower yielding connecting pax.

Once again, statements like this fly completely in the face of facts. I posted here:

The Real Deal On Int'l Local Market Size (by WorldTraveler Aug 2 2007 in Civil Aviation)

data from DOT filings regarding a number of routes flown by US carriers. There are a number of conclusions that can be drawn but over and over a.netters simply do not understand the reality of particular carriers' int'l operations and fact one is that DL's ATL hub generates some of the highest average local fares and highest onboard revenue. DL doesn't carry trash through ATL but instead is able to carefully pick and choose the highest value passengers that can connect through ATL to its international flights. Most other carriers would dream of being able to carry the revenue DL carries because DL's ATL revenue performance blows away what other carriers do from other hubs.

JFK has been DL's historical challenge. They have had a number of markets that have done very well but they have had an equal number that are poor performers. Indications from their most recent profit report is that they are fixing the laggards or they couldn't have reported as good of results as they did.

It makes no sense for DL to try to develop BOS at the same time it is beefing up NYC. NYC is a huge project on its own; trying to do too much at one time is a recipe for disaster. Further, no other US carrier is beating the door down at BOS to open new routes.

Next week will be a grand week at DL. This will undoubtedly be one of DL's most global expansions ever and, as I've said, DL will add more new routes through this series of announcements than many carriers fly for their entire interntional network.

That's a nice presentation, but you still did not refute my claims. I said lower yielding pax come thourgh and connect on ATL-Europe flights. What you said is that DL gets higher yielding local pax. The stats on that link only supported my claims that ATL-Europe flights are dominated by connecting pax.

I wasn't trying to 'defend' Boston, because I happen to believe that the airport is served well enough right now with respect to Europe. I can't really point to any sensible Boston-Europe routes that aren't already being served adequately. But still, Delta did have some grand plans for Boston that they summarily abandoned even while their beautiful new Logan terminal was under construction. "9-11" makes for a convenient 'reason why,' but if that argument really held water then they would have abandoned plans for JFK. It's more personal than that, between Massport & Delta IMO.

What would be nice, but not altogether realistic, is if Delta trumped an airline like Northwest and started Boston-Asia service. THAT is a market that is not already adequately served. In fact, no one serves it. But flying in the face of that is the fact that NW has ordered 787s while DL hasn't.
