It looks like Delta is not giving up on the planned flights to Santa Fe (SAF), despite the cuts in domestic capacity. I really thought these services were a goner.

Give it time, they will be..SAF is too close to ABQ and WN fares to support commercial airservice to cities like LAX and SLC. I can maybe see flights to DEN or maybe DFW. DEN might work cuz it is omni directional from SAF. No other hub is.

There was actually service from SAF to DEN on Great Lakes Airlines, who codeshared with United and Frontier. The service was on three Beech 1900D turboprops. The service ended in January. The reason why the service ended is that Great Lakes needed the aircraft for EAS routes, which SAF is not.

I could see DH8s to DEN working quite well, 3x-4x per day
