Hmmm Delta.com seems to think Delta has flights to LAX(note it clearly says NON-STOP) but if they do i must have missed something. I know they have a one-stop or two but it says Non-stop.

https://www.delta.com/planning_reservations/citypages/flights-from-boston.jsp


Note....This is asking IF Delta is starting LAX-BOS, not should they, they are, what would happen if they did.

PS if someone could take a screen shot of this it would be amazing, please and thanks.


yep.

It's not like they haven't flown it before. Plus, with AA and US rapidly diminishing their BOS ops, DL may see an opportunity to grow a bit in BOS. Yes you have B6, but believe it or not there is still big demand for legacies that offer F, lounges, global FF perks, etc. On our (LAX) side of things, they need to start serving important markets like BOS if they want to attract a loyal following here. It's great that they serve IND and CMH but Angelenos don't care about those small markets. Sadly, many people here don't know much beyond San Fran, Las Vegas, NYC, and Miami. I've talked to plenty of folks who say "oh, I love Virgin America. They fly absolutely EVERYWHERE I need to go!"   .

The page simply has not been updated in a very long time. If you go back to 2008, you can probably find 25 destinations that Delta served non-stop from its once much larger Boston operations. Like American, United and US Airways, Delta has been hurt by the incredible growth of low-cost carriers from Boston in the past decade.

Can't be, Delta didn't fly to DTW at the time(ever?) non-stop from BOS.

Nonstop flights from BOS to LAX, LGA, DTW and 22 other cities.

No idea, then, but that message has been on that website for quite a while now, so maybe somebody in networking should get in touch with somebody in website planning.

LAX-BOS is an absolute bloodbath that Delta does not need to be entering.

agreed, Delta doesn't need to waste its time on this right now. If they are going to jump into blood baths jump into DEN, BOS has a bunch of gateways that aren't very far out of the way. (JFK/CVG/DTW/MSP)

Thats what I don't get... Someone is jumping the gun, or is saying a 1-stop flight is non-stop.

But Delta is trying to get into play in the LAX based corp. contract market and I would think BOS is a need be route, much like SFO and NYC. (and i would think WAS and DEN would be pretty need be too)

Miami and D.C. are far more important if Delta wants to grab that traffic from LA.

Nobody is jumping the gun. The website people have just as much "inside knowledge" as the public. The groups are extremely disconnected.

AA runs a page of "new" routes and it is hysterical to see the inaccuracies posted on there all the time.

Did DL code share on NW's DTW-BOS flights pre-merger? If so, this would explain why DTW is on the list.

22)RSW*

And unfortunately, RSW, PBI, and TPA are not coming back this winter. MCO is staying at 2 frequencies. Visitors from HQ that have done town meetings have said that DL is "not interested in the Florida market" and can put the planes on more profitable routes. Still, it's too bad to witness the retreat that has happened in BOS over the past couple years, obviously due to the LCC's. Hopefully DL will decide to fight back one of these days. The RDU/DCA buildup is one positive sign.

They probably will start to fight back but they cannot fight back everywhere at the same time. Indeed, BOS-LAX non-stop is kinda crowded - AA, UA, VX, B6 (btw, Expedia now offers VX and B6 flights!). Maybe Southwest will start the route non-stop soon too.

Wow that is rather shocking. What about BDL? Are those florida flights chugging on? Also there's a rumor going around that DL is hiring f/a's obviously for NYC but also BOS. It seems like they aren't expanding BOS that much anytime soon.

They've been flying in on and off. I recall in March 2009 when I flew LAX-BOS-LAX I had the option of flying a 5:30am nonstop on the way back on a 738. It was too early so obviously I didn't do it.

With the 738 becoming a reality, I wouldn't be surprised to see them enter some transcon markets where they can most certainly capitalize on the increased seating capacity of the 738. Based on WN's seat pitch, how many seats will we see on the 738 if/when it comes online?

Exactly. DL couldn't get LAX-BOS to work in the old days when they tried to introduce BizElite domestically along with LAX-JFK. They d/c'd it, re-started and continued the cycle. This market didn't work for DL then and it won't now.

Perhaps LAX-MIA twice daily could work on 73Hs?

I would call a trans-atlantic to LHR expansion, but I guess we differ on that.

Maybe. They already fly to FLL though. I'd actually like to see them come back on the LAX-DFW route.

And I call the dropping of seasonal flights between BOS and florida, cuts.

I'm guessing 166-168. Similar to WestJet.
