Slot list @OSL, Finlay official for the press tomorrow.
We are therefore glad to finally be able to release information about Delta and Oslo Airport Gardermoen.

Delta have acquired daily slots at OSL for a JFK service, with a Boeing 767-300 (262 seats)

Flight number DL0036/ DL0037 (1234567 from 29MAR to 28OCT. 763 JFK JFK 0730 0945 JFK JFK )

These are the current services to New York, planned for the summer 2011 season.

CO double daily Boeing 757-200 service to EWR
SK daily Airbus 330-300 to EWR
DL daily Boeing 767-300 to JFK

(US also serving PHL daily with a 757-200)

We will know in January if Delta goes ahead with their plans from OSL or if SK have managed to defend their home market for the 2011 season with their OSL-EWR service (starting service in the end of march 2011)

More info to be presented tomorrow.

That would be the domestic configuration on the B763. The internationally-used B767-300(ER) aircraft have 215 or 216 seats in total depending on which subfleet the respective frame is in.

It sounds strange to me the 767 on the route.
Out of JFK DL flies with 757 to both CPH, ARN in Scandinavia.

Hi LIPZ

ARN/CPH have direct services with great cargo capacity on SK' 343/333 services to EWR/ORD/IAH.
There is a great demand for direct cargo capacity from OSL to the US, but the current CO/US 757-200 services does not allow this. That's one of the reasons why DL is in with a 767-300.

I do not understand why this 'rush' for NYC from Oslo?!
There must be other US destinations that would be possible, especially Chicago or alternatively Atlanta.

For years we only had CO to EWR (7weekly winter/14 weekly summer) on B752. It is confirmed that SAS wants to start a daily A333 service to EWR in March'11, and now Delta with B763 to JFK?!

Well, at least it will be some real cheap tickets to NYC summer'11.
US will also have it's daily B752 to Philadelphia for Summer'11.

Nice to see DL plan to reintroduce OSL, although in the past, they flew JFK-FBU. It's been 17 years since DL has flown to Oslo. I wish they had this flight when I use to go there more often five or six years ago! I always used Icelandair, it was the fastest way to OSL before the CO flights. Even with the KEF connection. I'm also surprised to see the 767 being used, considering the two CO and one SK flight. I remember when NW tried MSP-OSL on the DC-10 -30 in 1999, and it didn't even last a full year! Then SK pulled out with flights to EWR shortly thereafter.

Seems that there will be quite an amazing amount of seats available between OSL and NYC area next summer. I wonder if that will last, it certainly will be challenging to fill all those seats profitably.

IIRC the route itself was popular enough, but partner KL complained about a decline in traffic from Norway. Scandinavian's make huge contribution to keepin AMS a busy hub, so KL did not like the MSP-OSL. I remember the DL flights. It made FBU seem a bit more international, were it stood right beside SK907 767-300ER. I like that both routes are coming online next year. On a sidenote the last time SAS flew the Boeing jet, and DL The Airbus jet. This time, it is the other way around.

With this news from DL it makes me wonder about the following:

1: Will Norwegian delay their IC plans?
2: Should Feel Air abandon their business idea? After all we will have more than 1000 seats a day from Norway to the U.S. Thai just recently bought the larger 777-300ER for Scandinavian routes. I believe that Feel Air's chances are very slim.

I think there will be major overcapacity on OSL - NYC with extreme difficulties for new entrants like Norwegian to gain profitability on any US route from Scandinavia now... Not good news for Norwegian.

I think so too. I doubt they will put a 767 on that route. But anyway I think Norwegian should rethink their longhaul plans out of OSL... They don´t have the financial power to compete against Delta etc westbound and the likes of Thai going east... One blink from those airlines and Norwegian longhaul would go bust financially...

I highly doubt those seats are more than a fraction of a factor of CO:s success on this route. But anyway Continental (which is United by the way) has a better reputation when it comes to service and quality than Delta in Scandinavia.

Considering that DL will be the only one flying from JFK and also the only one flying the NYC-OSL route from the Skyteam alliance, and also that DL will be the only one flying the route with significant cargo capacity, I would say that DL has a good chance at making it profitable.

Nonsense.
Again, it's been said before, it's all about the alliances taking advantage of market dynamics. If StarAlliance has a strong presence in a certain market, there is room for OW or SkyTeam in certain situations. This may be one of them.

And I'm willing to bet a high percentage already connects through AMS on SkyTeam.

If it is EWR or JFK really does not matter since it is the same market but only different airports in the same city. Maybe the transfer network will be a factor and then the strongest of UA/CO and Delta will survive. And the Star Alliance has a stronger position in Norway with SAS being a member. And the cargo issue... I doubt that is a factor... SAS will have any needed capacity on that A330...

I still think any one of those carriers is one too much on OSL - NYC. Everyone will loose in this situation and maybe SAS with the highest cost disadvantage will be the first to leave...

The only reason this flight makes sense is because of ATI.

This is not just true of Delta, but JFK-BUD on AA, and LAX-MAD on IB. I'm sure we'll see more of these types of flights as the need to funnel traffic via AMS, FRA, and CDG diminishes.

Regardless, i think this route will do fine for DL. With all the capacity in the market, i do think the 763 will be overkill. I as well predict a 752...but maybe DL knows something we dont. Regardless, nice to see DL back in Norway!

Good news indeed  

OSL will soon look like a major airport with 5 long haul planes at the end of the terminal  

I think OSL now really need to change the design of their international terminal to fit all the pax on these flights and LHR...

Sort of the same market. As far as O&D numbers are concerend, EWR works better for people in Manhattan and Northern New Jersey. JFK is better for travelers in Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island. Both geographic areas are home to millions of people whose respective airports suit better, and are more conveinently located for them to get to, as opposed to making to trek to the other airport.

If you live in Northern New Jersey or parts of Manhattan, getting to JFK can be a time consuming pain in the butt. The same goes for people in Brooklyn and parts of Queens when going to EWR,
