The American holidays threw things off and a bunch of stuff was posted today, so here's another update.
This compares what is for sale this week for the stated period versus what was for sale the prior week...NOT the prior year.
How to read:
AAA-BBB 3>2 APR means a reduction in one roundtrip from 3 to 2 for April only
AAA-BBB 4>6 MAY- means an increase from 4 to 6 roundtrips starting in May and continuing
AAA-BBB 4>6 MAY-JUN, 5>6 JUL means the change is only for the stated period May to June and then a different change for July in the same route
Please take it easy on any typos...
MIA-AND Mountain View - Moffett Federal Airfield (NAS) (NUQ / KNUQ), USA - California AND Nassau - Lynden Pindling International (Windsor Field) (NAS / MYNN), Bahamas">NAS 11>12 JAN-
MIA-RSW 2>3 JAN-
DFW-SHV 9>10 FEB-MAR
IAD-CDG 2>3 MAY-
BOS-SEA 2>1 MAY
FCA-SEA 2>3 JUN-
LAS-PDX 3>4 JUN-
LAX-PDX 5>4 MAR-
MSO-SEA 3>4 JUN-
OGG-SEA 1>2 JUN-
THESE CHANGES FROM LAST WEEK WERE REVERSED AS EXPECTED AND NOW REMAIN CANCELLED.
CVG-CAE 0>1 FEB- NOW 1>0
CVG-DSM 0>1 FEB- NOW 1>0
CVG-OKC 0>1 FEB- NOW 1>0
CVG-PVD 0>1 FEB- NOW 1>0
CVG-TRI 0>1 FEB- NOW 1>0
CVG-TUL 0>1 FEB- NOW 1>0
What I would take from that is that they needed to find a couple of airplanes. I would speculate they were overscheduled by two planes and were waiting to see what had the least bookings to do the cancels. It's highly unlikely they would drop that flying in peak season to put planes on the ground.
Quoting ThegreatRDU (Reply 1): Good to see them bolster PDX....but the downgauge of PDX-AMS has me wondering....
I'm assuming this is their normal seasonal build, but I don't really look at the prior year so I'll let somebody else do that comparison.
Just out of curiousity, is it possible to elaborate? It kind of left me perplexed. Currently DL is showing that they will operate 8 daily flights between SLC-BOI with 2 of them being mainline and 6 of them being DL connection, and it's been like that for a long while now. Does 5 entail regional equipment, mainline equipment, or both? Does the OAG specify equipment?
Again, thanks for posting these every week. It's greatly appreciated by me.
Here is the detail by month. As you can see, it is way too much info for most people, particularly if multiplied by thousands of routes! Plus formatting it to make it even somewhat legible is tough. Enjoy!

Its funny to see SLC-MEM get reduced to two flights a day connecting two hubs. On Delta.com i still see three flights listed. The only thing i notice is in July one of the flights gets upgraded to an airbus but three are still listed when i just looked it up. Is there a delay on delta.com booking engine?
I loved the Saabs, aircraft type is not the problem. When Ealge is your first leg on a Delta ticket you are unable to check in online and you can not reserve a seat. You do not automatically get miles for it, you have to request them. When I called with a few questions, it was as if this codeshare never existed for how many people knew what I was talking about. The shuttle buses from the Eagle Terminal to T5 at LAX are relatively infrequent.

Quoting Jetbluefan1 (Reply 19): This may have something to do with B6 bringing BOS-SEA from 7x/weekly to 10x/weekly.
Keep in mind that is just for May only. The 2nd trip now starts in June. When does the B6 flight start? If it starts in May then I agree. AS often swoops in only for the best of the season and lets the other guys suffer in shoulder. They always did that on DEN-ANC.
: Isn't it a little strange to make cuts to your hub over spring break?
: Well, they did take over some Apple/USA3000 flying...and I bet that is high demand over the same period. Maybe that is why?
: The 2nd daily flight comes back as a redeye on 6/6/10. Funny that I look into the schedule far out and it is loaded until 11/6/10. I am sure the 2nd
: I bet PGH is right. That would explain why they suddenly needed two planes. I assume you are talking about B6? B6's schedule isn't even loaded that f
: And those markets are primarily business markets that have plenty of nonstop capacity to sun destinations.
