DL is closing LAN effective end of August due to rising fuel costs. ATL service was already cut last year.
No real surprise to me. I would say AZO is next.

Makes sense especially if (when) they will "reopen" it with the merger of NW.

I think LAN won't be the first city to see reduction/consolidation of service from DL and NW due to the economy and the price of fuel. Its never fun to lose service but to stay competative its what has to happen.

I wonder though if they (DL/NW) will keep some of the more seasonal services, like TVC-CVG or GRR-ATL.

GRR-ATL has operated for many years and has never been seasonal. Delta at one time operated mainline 732 GRR-ATL. I doubt GRR-ATL will ever go away, even with the NW/DL merger- more likely GRR-CVG for DL and GRR-MEM for NW would disappear post merger.

Using DL from LAN a few times and seeing they are down to two or three trips a day, this move
does not surprised me. In reality, it was only a matter of time.
This fall, LAN air service is down to 6 NW trips a day, 4 UAEX and an infrequent Allegiant sched.
COEX, AM Eagle USAirwaysEX and Midwest Conn(Skyways) have left LAN over the years.

It's unfortunate, but no surprise. All smaller midwest markets are going to lose CVG service. Most will also lose ATL service if they haven't already. They'll only be left with DTW/MSP service. The only exception are those markets (FNT, BMI, MLI) where DL wants to keep pressure on FL. Of course, large markets like IND, MKE and CMH will obviously still have ATL service (but will also lose CVG service).

LAN's DL service has horrendously overpriced and poorly scheduled. With the proximity of FNT, one could find more numerous daily flights to ATL and at a third of the cost due to the competition from FL.

With the number of DL stations that are closing, due to CVG service being cut, the writing is on the wall for the future of the CVG hub.

With the pending merger and state of the industry it makes zero sense to overfly DTW from places like LAN, AZO, TOL, SCE, etc.

Larger markets like GRR & FNT.will still be able to sustain ATL.

Tjwgrr....

Oops my bad. I meant to say GRR-CVG. Was thinking of something else at the time.

It does I've got to believe that CVG and MEM will be on the chopping blocks over the next couple of years unless something drastically changes with fuel and the economy. Its only natural that some routes will be lost from a merger.

GRR-ATL is really underserved even with high oil. I wish DL woudl bring back mainline into GRR.

Right next to the NW MD80 to MSP. Remember...?
I flew the DL DC9-30, 737-200 and MD 88
between GRR and CVG and RJ's including a 700 down to ATL.
I feel DL will stay at GRR. They are needed there and serve a purpose.

I think this is the begining of the end of CVG. I would look for AZO, FWA, SBN and many other to be next.

I agree that AZO and FWA could be on the chopping block. But SBN I think might be safe.

My reasoning is it's served by NW from DTW. I think you'll see a slow pullout of CVG destinations. We already have seen DL cut service from CVG to - SCE, LAN, now TOL. DL cannot afford to operate 2 hubs too close together. In fact, CVG is close to ATL barely over an hour flight.

This is kind of off the subject, but is DL still operating ATL-MKE mainline at all?

During BK, I thought MKW was one of the markets turned over to Comair for station operations.
