Yes but that fact remains Delta had them listed as daily and reduced them so they are showing less demand than Delta anticipated.
It was just a filler schedule, Delta didn't anticipate anything. These changes are 7-8 months out, current bookings are not going to indicate what the demand is eventually going to be. CVG-CDG hasn't been daily during Nov/Dec in years, but every year the filler schedule shows daily until the date gets closer. I am 100% confident that Delta did not anticipate such demand.
If they had no intention of flying these frequencies why were they selling them for months? I am not arguing with you. It just seems like a shady way of doing business.
It is just how they put together schedules, normally these changes take place far enough ahead of time that the OAG report doesn't cover them. The majority of pax don't book this far out, so the impact on passengers is very minimal. Oddly, most of these changes were made the Saturday before the OAG report last week, so I am not sure why they are just now showing up.
