DL is restarting service ATL - SNN in May 08 with a 757 with 16 business seats. This must be right at the limits of the 757.

This is the first TA flight from ATL with a 757 I believe

Wow..neat. This is better than not offering the flight at all. Now I wish DL would bring back EDI to ATL with the 757 or better yet come on DL lets do ATL-GLA with a 763ER!!! Don't make us go to Scotland via JFK! (Argh).

Though it's not even the longest 757 route for DL. That title still belongs to JFK-FRA, at a whooping 13nm more than ATL-SNN  Wink .

That would be correct.

Or, put another way, the folks at Massport will be able to look up as this flight contrails overhead. Big grin

CVG-AMS will be longest for DL's 757 routes.

JFK-FRA 3855 miles
ATL-SNN 3841 miles
CVG-AMS 4142 miles

Great news for SNN...

I presume this runs in parallel with the 757 to JFK and then the two 763ERs from DUB to JFK and ATL? Great to see the extra presence with nonstop services.

I am actually looking forward to my first Delta flight on Thursday morning... the DL165 from DUB to JFK. Have heard plenty of good things about DL across the pond lately. Not really looking forward to the Comair flight to PWM though!

DUB-ATL will be a 764ER next summer.

As for the 752s being introduced into transatlantic service from ATL and CVG, my guess is that some of that flying was originally intended for JFK (e.g, JFK-CMN) but because of the congestion issue at JFK, DL has had to postpone/cut down on some of the planned 752 flying out of JFK and only concentrate on the 'priority' ones

Will the JFK SNN JFK be with an all economy service aircraft while the ATL SNN ATL will be two cabin service? Is this because DL hasn't fitted out all the B757s the same way? If so, do they intend to do so?

Yes, the JFK and ATL 752s will rotate at EDI (i.e., the JFK-EDI aircraft becomes the EDI-ATL flight, and vice versa).

I really believe that if Delta wanted customs in Terminal A it couldlean on Massport and US Customs and it woild have it. It is not as simple as Massport saying no.

JFK-SNN will be sold as two class service once the aircraft has been modified with B/E seats and AVOD in both classes.

In addition to the previously mentioned CVG-AMS, the current longest 757 flight (that I know of, feel free to correct me) is Northwest's DTW-DUS, which is roughly 200nm longer than ATL-SNN.

Indeed not. CBP has categorically told Massport that they will not staff a second FIS facility at BOS.

Chris,
Delta could begin SNN-BOS tomorrow if the wanted into terminal A. SNN has pre-clearence to the US. No need to go to Terminal E. It appears that it is DL's decision not to begin the service.

My bad, I tend to conveniently forget that CVG still has service to Europe (somewhat like DL's management  Silly ).

Yes, the JFK and ATL 752s will rotate at EDI (i.e., the JFK-EDI aircraft becomes the EDI-ATL flight, and vice versa).

So EDI will actually see more capacity in S08 than in S07, interesting and somewhat surprising development.

Shannon is also scheduled to get US customs clearance so any US bound flight can arrived both Imigration and customes cleared. Will be great for those connecting as there will be no need to reclaim bags

Thanks...that is true between Boston and Shannon. But the larger issue is the collapse of plans Delta originally had for several transatlantic routes from Boston...not just Ireland. And while Delta would have been able to field a Shannon route out of their own terminal, they wouldn't have been able to do so on other European routes. And that's where the whole Delta-Massport snafu came into play (relative to Massport's insistence that international flights launch from their Terminal E rather than Delta's Terminal A).

This is about Atlanta, not Boston, so I'll stop here. But the irony didn't escape me that Delta has pretty much frozen its Boston operations in place while expanding elsewhere.

As a side, how routes are now officially scheduled with the 757? Providing I counted wrong, it should now be 12 flights,
ATL-EDI*/SNN, CVG-AMS, JFK-AGP*/BRU/CDG/FRA/LYS*/MAN/ORY*/SNN. And are those 4 routes marked with a star the only non-daily routes, and would the timings allow DL to use only 3 757s to operate those 4 flights?
