When did Delta Connection's nonstop flight between PVD and RDU end? It seems like just a bit over a year ago there was a thread announcing the beginning of the service and yet now.........it's gone. Just like that. Anybody know when it ended?

Ended in September of last year I believe...it ended along with ALB. Didn't last too long...If I recall DL execs choose new destinations based on game of darts using the USA map.

If they were playing darts they probably would have come up with something better

Change is: what you do with your mind about all those new routes you announced.

LOL though I'm surprised I never noticed the flight when I went spotting all those times.

Last year they had surplus CRJs from CVG/MEM drawdowns and awaiting the LGA slot swap that they experimented with a lot of point to point flying. I heard it actually did ok in the summer months and that it would have been feasible on a seasonal basis but with all the new LGA flying the spare a/c scene isnt what it was last year. (And this spring when they were planning the summer flying oil prices werent looking so hot)


Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!

RDU still has a pretty significant P2P operation for DL via the Connection carriers. I know the use of the term focus city has somewhat fallen out of use with DL, but it meets most of the objective criteria for that status.

When I worked for DL, I was the agent for RDU PVD pretty much every day last summer - somehow it seemed like I used to always be assigned it.

Some days it was booked to 34, other days to 3. We even had days where it was booked to 1.

It was a through flight to Orlando, I believe. Pulling up the PNR, it seemed like most people on the flight were headed down to Florida.

And with the latest deal with the 717's i can only assume the RJ flying with decrease and RDU will lose a majority of its P2P routes on DL connection.

Feedback from potential passengers that I heard was that it was 3-4X the fare as BOS-RDU service with multiple nonstop flight choices on at least 2 carriers (B6 and DL). With 1X CRJ service, it was a tough sell given those other factors.
