This compares what is for sale THIS WEEK for the stated period versus what was for sale LAST WEEK...It does NOT compare to last year or now.
How to read:
ABE-MDT 3>2 APR means a reduction in one roundtrip from 3 to 2 for April only
ABE-MDT 3.8>2.7 APR-JUN This is the raw format of the data which sometimes I'm too lazy to retype. It means that over a month they were averaging a little less than 4 trips per day and now it's a little less than 3 per day. So, basically they cancelled 8 flights per week or so. Airlines are doing A LOT of non-daily ops now, so these fractions are pervasive.
ABE-MDT 4>6 MAY- means an increase from 4 to 6 roundtrips starting in May and continuing
ABE-MDT 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, there was a lot to type...
More domestic pulldown at JFK as discussed last week. This means they expect to go forward with the US transaction IMHO.

DEN-SLC 6.9>4.9 Big cut
ATL-UTM 0>4/wk MAY-

HNL-OGG 26>24 MAR-

LGA is as good as dead. No way US is going to go with it. There is zero value to US in any of it.
Not so fast...
We will see.
If I was Delta, I would still go for the deal because it is still an amazing deal. But what is in it for US Airways? It is one-third the number of Reagan slots; Japan is soon to be Open Skies; and US can't get access to crowded GRU even with a slot swap.
Just another too-good-to-be-true deal for Delta, just like JAL was.
This one could be interpreted two ways. 1) US prepping for some sort of slot swap (though the LGA-CLT add kind of cancels that) OR 2) FL is having an impact. FL launched IND-LGA last fall (also served by DL) and I think three had become a crowd.

Quoting FlyPNS1 (Reply 14): DL could still sweeten the deal....throw in some cash and US might be willing to play ball.
If US were interested in selling the LGA assets for cash they would open it up to the highest bidder, and others I suspect would be bidding as well. In fact if US were looking to maximize their return on a sale the best way would be to sell the slots off piece by piece.

I'd agree if US's only goal was to sell LGA slots, but that won't get them any extra DCA slots.
Does DL still consider CVG to be a hub? Granted it looks like there were some gains in there as well, like CVG-SFO and CVG-TYS, but I guess by the looks of the rest of the list, yeah, that looks like a considerable loss overall...
