I really starting not to care if that ATL flight is only 3x CR7 (5 yrs ago it was 4x 738) After the economy went bad and DL was going downhill, the put the ole 732's on the route. When those were retired, they were forced to put CR7's on the route.Now, with the NW merger, the 319/DC9 is the closest aircraft to the 732. Does anyone think that these may be put on the route?

I think you'd see the CR9 before either of those.

319 might be possible, but I doubt the DC-9 would be making an appearance. They rarely make appearances now over 750 miles.

CRJ-900 would be the most likely plane though.

What was the furthest route they ever flown..I have to say, the ones that are like 40 years old, look brand new inside. It's like putting lipstick on a pig.

I guess a CR9 is better, it has F.

Just wait for FL to slap some 717s on SYR/ALB-ATL. We'll get our mainline back in a heartbeat.

Any idea if NW will bring back mainline ROC-DTW? And will MQ return to ROC- DFW ?

I'm not so sure. Something tells me that ALB isn't one of the markets DL would really fight for. How badly can FL hurt them if they're only doing 3x cr7 to begin with?

I'm just waiting for FL to show up in SYR, period.  Smile

Oh, I think DL would fight. BUF/ROC didn't have mainline when SYR/ALB retained it post-9/11. BUF/ROC now have it, and are both FL markets. SYR/ALB don't have mainline and are not currently FL markets. I think, just like nearly every other competing route ex-ATL, if/when FL adds ATL-SYR/ALB, DL will throw a few MD80s our way. They won't go gangbusters, but they'll want to compete for their pax. DL does well here, and I'm sure they'd like to keep it that way.

I'm beginning to agree with you, I'd like mainline to return, and I'd like FL to come, but I probably can't have my ways. DL has always said they were committed to upstate..are they showing that they are commited by operating three daily flight to ATL?? Theres no announcement and I'm no fortune-teller, but I see CVG being dropped soon.(Knock on Wood Not)

Most likely. I'm not thinking mainline for right now.

Um, when have they said that? Let's be honest, they have all connection flights. I wouldn't call it as being committed.

Noticing that the article was written in 2006, when the industry was completely different than it is today, I'd say that Delta is less committed now than they were back then. Especially when they did have mainline back in 06.
