Why Is DL's JFK-FRA Operated With 757-200?

I am possibly going to travel to Europe in September, and I have a DL voucher that I would like to use to pay for part of my flights. It is likely that one of my return legs will be FRA-JFK. However, I have ran a search and the flight is being operated with a 757-200... I had high hopes that this would be a 777-200ER, A330-200 (with the NW substitutions) or 767-400ER route, but to my disappointment it is a 52. Is there too much offer of seats from LH, AA and SQ in this route or why is DL not sending a widebody to FRA from JFK?


Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

It's flown with a 757 because the loads don't rate a 777

AA does not fly JFK-FRA any more.

FRA is highly dominated by STAR ALLIANCE , and DL had a hard time to fill their 763 during the last seasons. Just a lack of feeding traffic for DL for their JFK flight @ FRA.
AND, they are in the need to free 763 equipment based on their expansion plans .

It's a combination of the things you mentioned plus the fact that DL needs it's widebodies elsewhere where more $$$ can be generated. DL has been rapidly expanding its international destinations; most noteworthy is their expansion into Africa requiring the use of many 767's that previously served Europe. Rather than purchase new aircraft, DL did a smart thing by converting existing 767's to ER's instead of sending them to MCO and other points in FL out of ATL. JFK-FRA hasn't seen anything bigger than a 763ER since DL closed it's Pan Am acquired hub there. Traffic is down worldwide, but especially to Europe. Some of the biggest markets like NYC-FRA have way too much capacity, so the logical thing to do to preserve their presence was to downgauge the flight to an ETOPS 752 rather than leaving the market altogether.

Delta probably shuld even fly JFK to FRA if it has come to using only a 757. Delta does well from ATL & CVG to FRA. Delta does poorly to northwest Europe against the multiple daily flights bu the European airlines to JFK from AMS, CDG, BRU and FRA. Delta is strong to southern Europe and eastern Europe.

Im assuming you mean DL shouldn't fly NYC-FRA. But what you've got to remember is that sheer number don't tell the whole story...profit does. And DL is not the least bit gun shy about pulling a route that doesn't work. There is alot more TATL flying with 757's now than at any point in the past. If sending a 767 makes the route lose money and a 757 allows them to make money, then they are doing the right thing.

Probably for the same reason that AA, CO, NW, and US also use 757s on a number of other routes, including to key western Europe business centers. The 757 is the right plane for some routes for some airlines. By the same token, CO is the sole US airline using the 762ER (true ER) while the big 3 all chose the 763ER because the 762 and 763 have very similar trip costs. Less capacity provides a greater opportunity to maximize revenue.

I don't think he specifically meant they op the 762ER to FRA, just that they operate it at all, while almost everyone else in the US except US ops the 763ER.

Since when did DL convert their domestic 763s to 763ERs? They are still non-ER 763s. DL has only parked a few of them due to the economic environment. BTW, it isn't possible to convert most of them to 763ERs, as they mostly use GE CF6-80A2 engines. Only the four ETOPS aircraft (ships 1401-1404) can be converted to 763ERs as they have P&W PW4060 engines, however, DL does not plan on converting them. These particular aircraft are mostly used on LAX/SLC-HNL routes.

3 reasons. 1) ATL-FRA is a 764 2) it run on most O/D. Where ATL is big on needing feed. 3) it is a *A hub BUT i would assume that DL still has a fair group of FFs over there from the FRA hub days.

Why do you dis like the 757 so much? Why do you think that EVERY market needs a 777 or larger or that carrier fails in said market. I hope you didn't look into COs winter LHR flights from EWR. As said above JFK-FRA on DL is mostly O/D. With CO,LH and SQ in the market also (all 3 being in *A) Delta isn't going to waste a 763 (much less a 764,332,333,777,744) on the route. Its alot like AA starting up ATL-NRT with a 777.......it may work but it would be the biggest waste of a 777 ever.



yep.

I think its important that DL fly this route. They need a precence connecting NYC with FRA as they are two of the most important business centers in the world. Even if its just with at 752, they need to be there.

I am however wondering when DL will cancel CVG-FRA or at least move it to MSP. To me it makes no sense why DL would fly this route with all the downsizing CVG has recieved. I think this will happen before its said and done.

Look, if DL can fill a 757 then so be it. No need to put anything bigger on the route when there is only enough demand for a 757. Plus you get PTV's where with a 767-300 you wouldn't.

As long as DL has a hub in CVG they will fly to FRA from there. Even after all the downsizing at CVG it is after all still a major DL hub... people sometimes seem to forget about that fact. Also it makes a lot more sense for FRA passengers to connect through CVG instead of ATL on certain routes to the Mid-West, Northeast, Northwest of the US... where flying through ATL would be backtracking. They have a hub in CVG... why not use it... they sure wanna have a presence on aforementioned routes... And why in the world should they even consider moving it to MSP??? Even NW doesn't have a FRA-MSP nonstop... IF, and to me it's a big IF... they would move the flight somewhere else they'd ratehr offer a second FRA-DTW flight instead of flying to MSP... But I highly doubt that FRA-CVG will be terminated...

Anyone has any figures and info on how DL48/49 performs? The flight is mostly full, that's for sure... Any DL insiders have any info?

Best regards

Loads on the CVG-FRA flight for the next week or so all show it being anywhere from a couple empty seats in the back to being oversold and about 40% full in business.

So tihs flight is doing great in the back, however because of the economic crisis is only on average 40% full up front.

Very, very true... but keep in mind that this was during the days when DL still had it's FRA hub and was the number 1 US carrier into FRA and Germany...

The JFKFRA flight continued to BOM; many of the destinations that were "beyond" the FRA hub now are served nonstop from JFK now. There is no doubt that DL's JFK hub is larger than it ever was and that DL still has access to more of Europe via its own metal and the Skyteam alliance than it ever did in the 90s.

It still is true that DL serves more cities in Germany - and Europe - with its own aircraft than any other airline.
And with the exception of UA who has a JV with LH, I believe DL is still the largest airline in just about every German city. The same can be said about most other continental Europe cities as well.

Correct... DL106 (763) went from JFK to FRA then on to BOM, while DL72 (L15) went from JFK to FRA and on to IST with a scheduled change of equipment to a 72S at FRA. Now DL72 is a nonstop from JFK to IST.

You're absolutely right about that. DL is still the number 1 US carrier to Germany, and serves the most cities in Germany. UA is naturally the biggest US carrier in FRA now. But I think it's still not anywhere near the number of daily flights and capacity where PA and DL once were in FRA during the hub days...

DL is unable to profitably compete in key business markets out of JFK, including LHR, CDG, BRU, AMS, and FRA. However, they want to maintain a presence in these markets mainly so they can offer business contracts and premium pax an option to key business centers. Thus, they've downgraded to the smallest aircraft they can.

I hate the idea of a 757 transatlantic, but honestly, DL's 763s aren't a pleasant experience either. At least with DL, it's probably a wash.

While DL serves the most Cities in Germany from the US, I doubt they carry more passengers than UA between the US and Germany.

UA has the following service to Germany;
