Despite what the release on http://www.newglobalairline.com says, we can expect CVG and MEM to ultimately be on the chopping block. They expect $1 billion in annual synergies without the hub closures, but those synergies will be even greater with those two hubs cut. MEM and CVG offer very little high-yield O&D traffic, but rather they enable their respective airlines to offer rock-bottom low-yields for connecting traffic all while maintaining the inherent increased CASM of making a connection.

I do think that with this merger things wont be quite so ATL-centric. With more options for hubs to start flights, why should everything go to ATL by default.

I am interested to see what happens at smaller stations.

FAR for example, as of May 1st, will only have NW with service to MSP. Speculation and wishful thinking as it seems, hopes to see a frequency drop to MSP, with a pick up of ATL or DTW, and perhaps a SLC return once the merger is complete.

GFK also has only MSP service, and according to the GFK Airport, they have enough demand for increase service. Time will tell!

I think PHL will be an interesting scenario as far as gates are concerned. US would absolutely love to DL move its operations over to terminal E (where NW is currently operating). But, Terminal A has more room for the combined carriers.

LAX should be very interesting as well. Currently DL is in T5 and NW/AF/KL are in Terminal 2. Should be interesting to see what happens here.

DL isn't just about ATL now. JFK and ATL gets new routes all the time.

The one that will really do well here is LAX. I would bet that LAX will become Delta's newest hub. Along with LAX-Asia i would bet on more DTW,ATL and JFK Asia flights. I would also guess that the next China rights they go for will be ATL-PEK. Then Starting DTW-PEK and LAX-PVG with there NRT flights. I can see NRT becoming what GUM is to CO. Adding the small city's in Asia that can't be done from LAX or that wouldn't make money.

I don't see NRT lasting to long as a hub. It is making money but barely. LAX will become the main Asia hub but ATL,DTW,JFK will get major city's in Asia.

LAX is going to be difficult and costly no matter how they do it. I think it would make more sense for Delta to move a combine operation into T2 and T3 and share this with other Skyteam airlines. Alaska would fit nicely in T5 along with many of the other carriers currently at T3. (Frontier/Air Tran/Sun Country/Spirit/Midwest) There would still be space in T2 for current tenants and the revenue stream that provides. T3 would need major work done at some point and redesigned so they can connect between terminals without going outside security but this is at least feasible. There is also plenty of ticket counter space that uses a common area between the two terminals. This would give the combined operation the space they need.

Not sure how else they would manage this. The widebody operations of NW/AF/KL make moving over to T5 impossible. T6 is able to handle widebodies but I don't see UA giving up these gates anytime soon.

This will be interesting to see how it plays out... but guaranteed to be messy and a customer service nightmare.

Up Up And Away...

That will never work. AA tried that with Term 3 and Term 4 operations after buying RenoAir.

Its just not possible. LAX has so much competition that is entrenched there that there just isn't any way to focus efforts there and get a satisfactory yield.

United has an extensive domestic network as well as an entrenched Asian hub, not to mention facilities and aircraft. Even AA would be quick to respond and are better equipped to do so.

Further, the facilities at LAX will not support Delta growing to the size necessary to support an Asian hub. There's not gate space nor immigration desks to do it.

DL's capitalization on Asian markets will be point to point to their existing hubs, or expanding NRT feed to more point-to-point US cities. They can command the markets from DTW, ATL, SLC, etc and feed them with passengers to make up for the lack of O/D, and get good yields.

Well at EWR Terminal B-1 is already DL and NW, so I'd imagine that they would lease the whole wing to themselves. They will have a substantial amount of operations and probably the second biggest carrier surpassing AA.

The difference in this case is that Terminal two and three are next to each other vs three and four, which AA used for a time after the TWA takeover, have the parking structure in between them and are a pain to get between airside and land side. Using multiple terminals at LAX seems to work well as long as the two terminals have a physical connection between them which would be possible between two and three. Of course this would mean that DL would have to give up T5 which should be able to absorb all of the domestic and some of the international carriers based in T2 and T3.

I would venture to say that NRT-JFK is almost certainly coming back. NW pulled out of the market last year, but given DL's huge JFK presence, as well as the NRT hub for NW, this route will almost certainly be brought back and I think can make money this time around.

In BOS, the combined carrier will certainly end up in A, with the AMS flight being towed over from E. This will leave some empty domestic gates in E for someone to move in. Two thoughts come to mind. Virgin America, which clearly has BOS on their future map. A longshot that I don't see happening, but they have surprised me lately, Southwest.

With CVG, I could actually see this further downgraded, and I can also see AA, UA, and US being relocated to terminal 3, which would be the only terminal left in the airport and the other terminals can face the wrecking ball.

Only other thing i wonder, at ORD. does NW move to the L concourse or does DL move to Terminal 2. There is no additional gate space in either place, and I don't see AA giving up gates in L, or anyone in E giving up gate space. Maybe if a CO UA merger happens then they can combine in 2 with the CO gates, but who knows.

There is no longer a reason for CVG or MEM to remain. Of course both managements will say they won't be affected, but it is inevitable that both hubs will take drastic cuts. I give it 12 months before Air Tran, jetBlue, and Southwest are in each of those cities.

Here in ALB........Delta has two gates with jetways (B5 & B7) and one without (B4). Northwest has one gate (A4). The ticket counters are right next to each other. Delta is handled by Delta employees inside and the ramp is handled by Delta Global. Northwest is handled by Mesaba which means that they will more than likely lose their jobs being that they are not actual Northwest employees. During bankruptcy, Northwest closed a large number of its mainline stations and put in contract regional workers.

Delta has 4 flights to ATL using CR7's (70), 3 flights to CVG using CRJ (50) 2flights to JFK usinf 1 CRJ (50) and one ERJ (50).

Northwest has 1 flight to MSP using CRJ ( 50 ), 3 flights to DTW using one CRJ (50) and a mixture of DC9's and A320's

I think MEM and CVG are important and will stay or at least one of the two. MEM for example is one of the cheapest airports to operate out of, and could be used to lighten the load out of ATL which already has very long taxi times.I think they will use theese hubs for the regionals to serve smaller cities in the US.

In SAN, NW is an outsourced station with about 5-7 flights (depending on the season and whether MEM is op'ing or not), currently using up to 3 different (mostly shared) gates in T2E (also the location of their ticket counter.) The Delta operation (complete with a Crown Room) is located in T2W, running about 14 daily departures out of about 4 (mostly shared) gates. The 2 separate operations today have a combined 9 RON a/c!

I would expect, until such time as CVG and MEM are de-hubbed anyway, that the NEW Delta will operate somewhere in the 20-flight neighborhood and will live in T2W (the current DL home) and probably use the same DL gates as they currently do (38-41), perhaps with less "sharing" than is presently the case. (I could envision maybe B6 and even HA moving from T2W to the current NW space over in T2E thus giving the new Delta operation almost exclusive use of gates 38-39-40 and 41. The Crown Room is, I believe, between gates 37 and 38.

I would like to think that within a few years, and assuming the Dreamliner ever actually flies (and DL still is a customer?!), Lindbergh Field would see at least some moderate growth by Delta, including some int'l flying as well as perhaps some increased domestic service (maybe even heading back to Hawaii?)

Here in SYR I can see NW moving to the north terminal where there is plenty of room on the end of the concourse where DL is and B6 taking over the former NW gate because B6's current gate waiting area can get cramped in particular when there is a delay.

Yeah, but the NRT hub itself is eventually going down. A lot of NW's traffic to/from Tokyo was native Japanese, and this is the equivalent of, say, JAL being taken over by Air Do in the Japanese mindset. I think it'll be a while before Delta admits it and cuts their losses there, but I just don't see the market there reacting well to this. Delta is not unknown there and it is not particularly well liked.

I don't see why JFK-NRT couldn't be profitable, as it is for other airlines, but you don't need a hub at NRT for that.

123 DTWAGENT : Here in DTW DL/NW are in the same terminal. NW is in the A and C concourses. DL and CO are in B concourses. So it would mean the DL will take over the

129 Cubsrule : I buy that, but largely because DTW is under capacity. ATL is not, and that would seem to indicate that DL needs MEM, at least for the time being.
