After years of DL Connection service only, it appears Delta will send a daily MD-88 into Houston's Hobby in the evenings. The service will leave ATL at 6:47p and arrive HOU about 8:10p with a morning return the following day. Looks like the service begins with the winter schedule. Nice change from the CR9's I always seem to travel on.

The mainline trend seems to be coming back. Many stations are getting back their mainline services after years of DL Connection only.

I personally thought HOU would get mainline back when MDW did.

Going mainline on first flight out/last flight in to outstations always seemed like common sense to me. It's usually those flights that tend to entice more biz travel. And it probably saves some on overnight charges.

OKC is getting mainline back, too.

I was surprised DL didn't do this more. UA and US have always kept mainline service here in MDT (as one fly's over my house right now, can't mistake those V2500 engines howling) one flight a day and a lot of other NE cities get the same. Even with FL ending ATL in September, on the schedule DL is keeping the one mainline flight. Good for HOU though, maybe this will things to come for DL.
