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?

I believe that JFK-DKR-ABV is still a go. At least it's still showing as bookable.

Maybe bookable, but I know at least one crewmember who was told this flight isn't going.

The trips are still showing on crew members schedule though....
And showing up on our travel net.
Doesn't mean at the last minute they will get a call saying their not going.

The statement made by DL was that services to NBO and ROB were canceled. ABV still shows in Travelnet.

A memo was just sent out yesterday from Director of Line Operations that reminded everyone that JFK-DKR-ABV is a go for 10JUN (arriving 11JUN).

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..
