DL To Start LAX-ANC/BOS/GEG

On the heels of adding SJC, SEA, and BNA to their LAX portfolio, DL is now also adding ANC, BOS, and GEG. ANC will be twice weekly (FRI/SUN) during the summer using a 757 starting June 21st. BOS will be a daily 757 starting June 10th with a redeye eastbound and a morning flight the other direction. GEG will also start June 10th using a CR9.

LAX-ANC
2030-0100 757 57
ANC-LAX
2350-0605 757 57

LAX-BOS
2230-0710 757 D
BOS-LAX
0845-1200 757 D

LAX-GEG
1950-2225 CR9 D
GEG-LAX
0645-0920 CR9 D

These flights are viewable in Delta's desktop timetable.


BOS isn't too surprising of an addition but ANC and GEG certainly are IMO. I wonder how AS will feel about ANC and GEG.

Personally I think LAX is perhaps the most interesting market to watch and it will be interesting to see how the future plays out with AA, UA, DL, WN, and VX all fighting for a share of the pie. It would be great for LAX if all 5 can keep expanding their ops and I think that is what will happen as much as gate space allows. Speaking of which, I wonder how much wiggle room DL has left at this point. T5 will be busy.

AS and DL both use to serve GEG-LAX. Currently no one serves it, so AS can't get too upset.

I wouldn't be surprised to see UA blink first. They have steadily downgauged from mainline to express on several routes and cut frequency on others. Their market share has also been declining, I believe, although it's a chicken-and-egg as to which of those situations caused the other. I think once the SFO renovations are completed and UA will be at full capacity up there, LAX, while they certainly won't abandon the 2nd largest city in the US, will become less of a focus for them to defend.

Back on topic, has DL never flown LAX-BOS or is this a resumption of once-upon-a-time service?

Question, just random, Is SEA-LAX still loaded as 3x CR9? My timetable is being stupid  

edit: Never mind. LAX-SEA goes 1x 757, 1x 738 1x CR9

does look like the 757 goes away in AUG.

Other changes, LAS gets a 320 (replaces 1 319) and (not really surprising) LAX-HND will go to a 767 with flat beds.

Also I am showing PVR coming back to daily (738) and GDL coming back to daily (757....not sure i get this being on a 757 when it failed with a 320 just a few months ago....)

DL right now is the odd man out on BOS-LAX. They well need to increase frequency to more then once daily to compete with AA, UA, B6, and VX who all offer more then one flight per day on the route. This is the one of the few remaining routes they will need to start in order to show that they are serous about their intentions with the LA market, they will not succeed with one daily flight, they need more. I hope I'm proven wrong on my opinion on this but only time will tell. I believe they will need to start IAD, DEN, DFW, IAH, and ORD to finish their domestic offering out of LAX.

Finally Delta connects one of the most important domestic points to their LAX "hub". While I am glad they added BOS, I think they need another frequency on the route, leaving early morning from LAX and returning in the evening.


As I wrote in the DL SJC thread, Delta seems committed to Los Angeles, which they demonstrate with the launch of Boston. Now we are only missing a few more important destinations (mentioned above in reply 6) before Delta has full coverage out of LAX. Furthermore, with their 49% stake in VS I would not be surprised to see one of the LHR flights transferred to Delta metal.

Agreed. At least a morning 737 flight. Kinda surprised they are going with the 57 for the start.

Oh course I also think MIA needs at least another flight too.

Right now they are at ~8 flights per day per gate. So pretty darn busy.

(note, I really have no idea what gates in T6 they can/can't use. I do know at one point a rumor was floating around that they were trying to work out a deal with United for use of the old DL connector gates. No idea how true that is....just the rumor mill.) Also they have been using some of the parking spots at the hangar for RJ flights

Yes, agreed. And they should add all these routes sooner rather than later if they are so serious about this LAX buildup. Let's see how the incumbent carriers respond. Let the games begin.

Not sure, but I know VX wasn't. This is a route that Delta has to be more than willing to lose money on. (and again, IMHO lose money on at least 2 but more than likely 3 flights a day)

Also think this is a route that it is very important to get the best hard product on. ie 75X and 73H aircraft.

LA's key transcontinental business markets are NYC , D.C. and Miami. Boston's business ties to California are largely to NorCal.

I think AS is not going to be upset, it seems whatever new arrangement they made a couple months back, must have included flying each others key routes to dominate and hopefully rid themselves of any possible competition. AS has a nice thing going on the west coast.

Since AS/DL have made their new stronger alliance, AS has begun SEA-SLC, DL LAX-SEA now LAX-ANC & LAX-GEG. right into the heart of AS country. Normally a move by a carrier DL's size into such protected AS markets, would have elicited a strong reaction from AS, look at B6 going SEA-ANC 1 x daily. and AS trumped with triple miles.

This would be great, and a welcome back to DL, I do hope we see a couple of CR9's ourselves here, I'm needing them to start by the last week in September. Last time I took DL PDX-LAX-PDX it was being flown on 733's, before that 72S's.

3-4 CR9/CR7 sounds about right. Link up to Hawaii,SYD, HND and NRT(even though it has a PDX flight) plus the short haul market, T-cons and Mexico.

And of course, AS doesn't fly GEG-LAX so I have no idea why they would get super upset. Gives them a chance to codeshare on an ex-route.

Also AS has started SEA-ATL/MSP flights as part of the "alliance". right now its 3 to 1. (sorry, not counting a 2 weekly flight to ANC and only runs for a few weeks.)

Yes that is true, AS most likely dominates the market share anyway. IIRC, AS is not putting it's code on the LAX-SEA flights flown by the DL CR9's, I am unsure if they will be doing so on LAX-ANC or LAX-GEG. Since G4 announced GEG-HNL I had hoped they may think of taking on this route non-stop, but I guess I was wrong.

How much room does DL have to grow there at LAX? I hope we see more DL dots on the west coast being connected to LAX. I think these flights will help DL keep more inventory control for their top tier frequent flier base.

Delta's gate per day usage is pretty high. As i said, they have been parking RJs at the hangar to free up space. (and again, rumor was they were trying to work a deal to get more T6 gates)

Note the OP specifies these additions are only on Fridays and Sundays. So this looks to be an asset utilization play or an observed connection trend rather than an attempt to compete with the 4 carriers currently running the route with multiple dailies.

68 travelin man : Really, wow that must have been one of those "blink and you'll miss it" routes. When did they serve the route?
69 LDVAviation : Not so much like LAX-ATL. It could very well be the case that AA's corporate customers do not demand LAX/ATL, but they do demand LAX/DFW. The corpora
70 MAH4546 : Once-weekly, around '06-'07. I think it operated for two seasons.
71 reggaebird : I fly LAX-BOS (via JFK) very frequently. Invariably, I see several people from the LA flight on my connecting BOS flight. I really believe the DL mar
72 Post contains images yellowtail : Doesn't mean it cant comeback..... Again that was 5 years ago...see post 65. LIR is far different today than it was 5 years ago. Oh how I wish I coul
73 usdcaguy : This might be true, but why is AA doing it with double daily CR7s? There is currently no nonstop from IAH to SYD; AA and DL both could use the feed f
74 SESGDL : In what reality is a prediction on something hypothetical a fact? Jeremy
75 MaverickM11 : I don't know if it's a fact per se but it's extremely unlikely that DL will capture any of the small local LAXPTY market, with 3 dailiy CM flights th
76 MAH4546 : It's not. You need to re-read what I wrote. Feel free to save it. You've been claiming DL will build LAX-Central America, among other things, for goi
77 LAXintl : Remember Delta has tried and failed miserably already. In recent years we've had all types of attempts with flights to MGA, LIR, BZE, plus a ton of M
78 yellowtail : Past success / failure is never an indicator of future success / failure. There are many routes that printed money that have dissappeared when market
79 MAH4546 : Market conditions in Central America-LA have not changed in the past five years, other than the fact TACA is even more dominant than before. Same yie
80 BoeingGuy : and SBA and LGB. Seems like the CR7 is a good fit for LAX-GEG actually, if AS wanted to start it again.
81 LAXSTEW : Changes are loaded. LOVING this LAX growth. It's slow and steady, and seems to be sticking this time.
82 tommy767 : They operated LAX-LIR in and around April 2008
83 delta2ual : Is AS putting their code on these routes? If so, then I don't see the big deal. It could potentially benefit AS too. I know DL drops routes that lose
84 MAH4546 : Loaded in GDS and looks like even LAXBOS and LAXGEG are seasonal. Only operating through mid-August.
85 Post contains images mpdpilot : For AA the two are not the same. But from a macro view they are very similar. Two large markets, dominated by a single carrier with a handful of opti
