MY question is with a more western hub will delta shift its seasonal FAI service back to SLC from MSP?

Also maybe a daily ANC-MSP could be shifted to SLC

There is already 2 daily ANC-SLC flights on Delta, which is probably more than enough for the market. (given all the other possibilities to fly from ANC to the western US (ANC, PDX, DEN, PHX, LAX, SFO)

DL 1192 departs ANC 1:05am arrives SLC 7:46am
DL 1194 departs ANC 9:05am arrives SLC 3:58pm

'902



life wasn't worth the balance, or the crumpled paper it was written on

I wouldn't really expect them to move any of the Alaska services away from MSP. My understanding is NW has done very well on MSP-Alaska routes, part of which is due to MSP's excellent location for connecting traffic from Alaska to the entire eastern half of the country (and eastern Canada). It makes sense for DL to utilize SLC to connect Alaska to the west and MSP to the east, particularly given that SLC really isn't much closer to ANC or FAI.

For sake of comparison, a JFK-MSP-ANC trip is 3,082 nm while JFK-SLC-ANC would be 3,575 nm. The difference is even greater to FAI at 3,027 nm through MSP vs. 3,626 nm through SLC. That is mostly due to the fact that FAI is only about 150 nm closer to SLC than MSP.

Why? Minneapolis is better situated geographically for Alaska-Mainland.

DL would put the FAI service into SEA with an AS code share long before they throw another mainline 738 at SLC-FAI.
