With fuel prices at record highs and the economy in a slowdown, I was wondering how Delta is managing on their exisitng ATL-JNB flights and the new JFK-CPT service? The ATL-DKR-JNB be must be a killer on fuel costs. Are those costs made up with BizElite pax and/or cargo?
Also how is a US domestic competing on in-flight service comapred to carriers like SAA, BA, VS,LH and Emirates?

All I can tell you is that ATLJNB is very full, but as you said, flying a 767 that far is very expensive and very tough to cover on the revenue side. There aren't that many one stop ultra long haul 767 routes for a reason.

Having flown many SA)">DL 764s and SA 340s (600 and 300) I have to say both are nice, however I was pleasantly surprised how nice SA's Y product was.
