DL Summer 2011 Hub/Focus City Departure Breakdown

With DL's latest schedule load (which will appear in delta.com this weekend), the summer schedule seems to have finally been updated to a realistic, non-dummy version. Being a total aviation nerd, I've spent the last two days combing through the DL e-timetable and tallying up departures by equipment type at every DL base with 50+ scheduled departures.

The date I used was June 30, 2011 (a Thursday). The schedule varies from day to day and I'm sure there will be many small tweaks before it is truly finalized, but this should provide a fairly accurate snapshot of what the busiest DL stations will look like this summer.

I've compiled the following lists using the aircraft codes found in the DL timetable. For those not familiar with the codes DL uses: 73W = 737-700, 73H = 737-800 w/ AVOD, 757 = domestic 757-200, 752 = international 757-200, 763 = 767-300 (domestic), 767 = 767-300ER, 777 = 777-200ER, and 77L = 777-200LR. I believe the rest are fairly self-explanatory.

Also note that I plan on doing similar breakdowns for the rest of the US legacies in the next week as time allows. I'm just starting with DL because I find them the most interesting (the full effects of the merger integration can be seen).

Anyway, enjoy!!

Wow! A June schedule without 757s.. usually, it's 8 daily 757 to ATL alone! But I guess with the pax now being spread out amongst the new destinations, that's okay for now..

Yay for being Number 13!!!!! Uhh.. hmm.. well..

A couple of interesting things that I see:

- 52 D95 departures from ATL, more than DTW, MSP, and MEM combined
- The signficant amount of DTW 738 flying
- MSP being pretty much the last stand for the Saabs
- What appears to a fairly significant reduction in 76 seater flying from DTW versus schedules past
- The gutting of CVG 737 flying, with some A319/A320 as replacement
- Despite the complaints of some MSP supporters, there is a still a substancial amount of M88, A319, A320, M90, 757, 753 flying

LAX is mostly mainline compared to other Hubs/focus cities..SLC has like 150 plus RJ'S a day versus 20 flts a day thru LAX even DCA has around 50....

Thanks for the hard work! I'd love to see seat counts as well (but I am volunteering someone else to do it  ) as I think it would put the relative sizes of the hubs in better perspective.

The LAX growth is nice to see. Let's hope it sticks.

Surprised by JFK. My memory may be playing tricks, but it really seems to have shrunk a bit, although I guess no hub would be hit harder by the planned international capacity shrink for the summer.

Thanks for sharing.
Are the numbers for domestic flights only? I did some validations for the main hubs. Especially the widebody types look underused, if you compare daily departures with the aircraft in fleet. (for NRT I only counted the inner asia flight, in order to avoid double counting)
I count every departure from a hub as one rotation. This is why flights between the hubs (i.e. ATL-MSP) are counted double in my analysis. Therefore the numbers in the right column should be slightly to high. But I think they are too low. Only 2.5 rotations per day for a 320? And only 0.5 rotation for a 777?
Depending on the average segment length I would expect 3-4 rotations for narrow-bodies and 1 rotation for widebodies/longhaul.
Any thoughts?

The sheer number of transatlantic routes from JFK is very impressive, however. ACC, DKR, KEF, SNN, DUB, MAN, LHR, AGP, MAD, VLC, BCN, NCE, CDG, BRU, AMS, ARN, CPH, TXL, FRA, ZRH, MXP, PSA, FCO, VCE, PRG, BUD, ATH, IST, KBP, SVO, and TLV. That's 31 destinations. UA/CO serves 30 from EWR, if you include BOM and DEL. UA/CO have more daily flights, but less widebodies.

And there will be more widebodies than there have been in a long time. When was the last time MSP saw 10 daily widebodies? Must have been when there were still DC-10s and 747-200s flying.

ilovepabst is right. I'm glad they changed the redeye to a 753. It needs to be that size.

Looks like they will rotate through ATL unlike last year where they rotated the 332 through NRT.

Well done. I've always heard DTW to be a CR2 haven but I didn't realize the ratio was so slanted compared to mainline! EDU also suprised me. It was almost all 757s with a few 738s and Mad Dogs mixed in last year to Atlanta.

So anyways, FSDan was right on the money, sorry about that man.

But like i said the next day it looks like LAX will bust 100.

Thanks for taking the time to compile all the data. Very interesting.

Another way of looking at some of the cities.... % of flights that are SF3 or small regional jets (excluding the E70/E75):

ATL - 36%
DTW - 66%
MSP - 47%
SLC - 67%
MEM - 80%
JFK - 49%
CVG - 77%
LAX - 31%

DTW has seen a big shift to small planes post-merger, I guess particularly with the D95 shift to ATL.

Looks like MSP naysayers can look at the numbers.

MSP - 199 mainline operations
DTW - 168 mainline operations.

The MSP hub is staying strong!

Quoting LaoLao (Reply 17):
Only 2.5 rotations per day for a 320? And only 0.5 rotation for a 777?
Depending on the average segment length I would expect 3-4 rotations for narrow-bodies and 1 rotation for widebodies/longhaul.
Any thoughts?

Don't forget that there are constantly frames out for maintenance, mods, etc. so your numbers are probably a bit diluted. Also, I don't find the widebody stats too surprising because of the length of the routes they fly...

Quoting FlyASAGuy2005 (Reply 20):
I've always heard DTW to be a CR2 haven but I didn't realize the ratio was so slanted compared to mainline!

Yeah, even CVG has a higher ratio of premium-cabin aircraft to total aircraft than DTW!

sorry about that man.

No problem.

34 FL787 : Good luck to them is all I can say. I don't get it.
35 Transpac787 : DTW will have more daily 738 departures than JFK+LGA+EWR combined, and will also be bigger than the LAX, SLC, and CVG bases. I think this heavily giv
36 DeltAirlines : No. Traditionally, carriers have wanted to go into LGA, which is by far easier to access Manhattan from than either EWR or JFK. JFK grew due to the r

63 panamair : Delta will not be adding more transatlantic capacity the rest of this year; in fact, it is supposed to come down after the summer peak.
64 vin2basketball : However on May 23rd, the sked is at 16 daily flights... I read your reply...

75 vin2basketball : My bad, I made a mistake...
76 FSDan : Interesting. I didn't realize MEM had already lost 30 flights over last summer. Same for SLC, although I think there are more mainline and large RJs
77 TOMMY767 : That schedule is plain wrong: EWR: ATL: 11x MEM: 2x SLC: 2x (generally. sometimes it goes 1x daily.) CVG: 4x AMS: 1x MSP: 5x DTW: 7x TOTAL: 32. Again
