In addition to the cancellation of today's Nairobi inaugural, already being discussed in another thread, apparently Delta has postponed Monrovia, Abjua, Malabo, and possibly Luanda as well, which were set to begin next week.
This also axes the New York-Dakar 757 segments that were about to begin (though these were intended as feeders for Monrovia and Abuja).
These cancellations can't * all * be Homeland Security related, as apparently Nairobi is. Anybody know what is happening?
This eliminates * all * New York-Dakar flying, does it not?

Maybe bookable, but I know at least one crewmember who was told this flight isn't going.
I believe what they are seeing is that certain legs were canceled on their (long)
rotations. i.e DKR-JFK canceled on certain days. This was done because of the no go of ROB.
I think scheduling is just reworking their trips. But ABV and DKR will still
operate......... As of now lol..
