Has Delta finally made it in the Trans-Con markets? Although their yield maybe lower than CO/UA and AA. The loads look goood JFK-SFO, JFK-LAX, BOS-LAX.
The new morning flights seem to be working fine.
Has this hurt AA or UA?

Don't know about your questions.

But what I want to know is how the loads are on their JFK-SVO flight. Since Delta is the only US airline providing service to Moscow, I'm sure there has to be very high loads. Can anyone confirm?

Also, why hasn't any other US airline started service to Moscow?

Oops, I should have said Trans-Con not Transatlantic in the title.

SVO loads are good depite Aeroflot's discounting which DL does not seem to match. I've never heard SVO having a revenue problem unlike other European destinations. I'm sorry to say SVO has corrupt business enviroment which may keep some airlines away.

Transcon flights on DL, also marketed as Business Elite U.S. to/from JFK and LAX/SFO/SAN and BOS-LAX have been quite successful. Perhaps one of the most important factors in their profitability is the use of the 767-300 equipment and the cargo capabilites of that aircraft. Freight loads on those flights are high, and adds to the bottom line for these flights. It also keeps the 767-300er fleet up and running throughout the day.

JFK-SAN hasn't been BusinessElite US for some time... while the flight was introduced with a 767-300ER in the international configuration, i was downgraded some time ago to a 757, and now further downgraded to a 737-800.

Is there any chance we could be seeing BOS-SFO in the near future, as DL continues its buildup out of BOS?

Yes, I have seen many famous people on the early morning JFK-LAX flights.

Also, does any airline hub in Boston, or is it just served by all the airlines to a fair amount of cities...

BOS is basically split between Delta and US Airways and American. Delta is the largest passenger carrier, American has the most flights and US Airways serves the most cities. Currently American has 10 gates in Terminal B, US Airways has 15 gates in Terminal B and Delta has 14 gates in Terminals A (Shuttle) and C (Mainline, Express, ACA, Comair). In 2004, however, Delta will have 24 gates consolidated in Terminal A, which will be only for Delta, Air France, Alitalia and their other partners. By that time, Delta could be the largest overall airline in BOS and could consider BOS a hub.
