I know the schedules post August 18th have not been finalized yet, but as of today, the route is listed as mainline for the first time in a long time starting on that date. Right now it is showing an A319 MSY-DTW and a DC9-30 on the return. The a/c types might be different by then but usually if a schedule is changed from mainline to regional or vice versa that's what it ends up being. Along with this is at least a chance of MSY-MSP going mainline as well, because currently the aircraft are routed MSP-MSY-DTW and DTW-MSY-MSP. Regardless, it's nice to see more NW metal back in MSY.

I wonder if this is not a sign of DL trying to build up MSY? I can't think of anything in Aug that would cause a short spike in traffic. How many RJ's are being taken out (therefore fewer total flights)?

Can I have a mojito on this flight?

Well I would think that the Labor Day and end of summer vacations could have something to do with it?

Just a one-for-one replacement...CR9 to 319.

August and September are the slowest months in N.O in terms of tourism and conventions by far. Perhaps they are seeing good advanced bookings, though.

It looks like the A319 is coming from LGA and continueing on to DTW
