Today DL (by NW) is resuming Detroit-Rome route after 4 (or 5?) years hiatus, daily service with A-333 acft.
This is the 2nd new long-haul destination for Detroit inaugurated in a few days (Shanghai began just 4 days ago).
Does anyone know how are the loads looking? Is there a reason for being the only DL flight to Italy without codeshare with Alitalia?

From what I have heard around the Valley here, the SLC-NRT has been doing great the past two days it has flown. Funny to say that now, but we will see how it goes. Everyone here is expecting and projecting it to do well. Just saw it take off a couple hours ago. Used an NW 330 today, hopefully we'll see a DL painted one soon.

Quoting Davescj (Reply 9): What is operating NW/DL 820/821 (ATL -- FCO -- ATL)? I ask as I was on it 2 June. It was an A330 in DL paint. It was cool....being right on NW as the switch to BizElite happened (if the kit was the NW bad kit, was the great DL food).

I took the inaugural SLC-NRT flight. I'd say the plane was about 80% full, and there were quite a few non-revs on the plane, a good portion of whom were upgraded to J. Salt Lake mayor Ralph Becker was on the flight along with a few people from the state government on a trade and tourism mission.
I have to admit I was disappointed with such a light load (even with non-revs) on the inaugural flight. Hopefully things become a bit fuller as the route develops.
