Re: OAG Changes 8/20/2017: KX to ORD; AA Moves ZRH to PHL from JFK; AM Back Into DTW-MTY

It's actually up to 5 carriers flying DEN-NYC (UA, DL, WN, B6, and F9's seasonal service). AA will be the 6th. Interestingly, WN is the only one flying the route year-round that does not currently offer a red-eye option to either EWR or LGA. Ah, forgot Southwest - apologies. Yes - so six carriers n...
