DLX At Mci?

Fri Mar 15, 2002 7:46 am

Hey, I was just looking at Delta Express' web page and it shows that they no longer fly to Kansas City. What happened? Was it a result of September 11? Will they be reinstating service? Or did it just not do well enough? I really doubt it's the latter, as you see Southwest making profits off of their own Florida routes. I guess Southwest could have shut DLX out of the market, but Vanguard is launching Orlando, and has already been flying FLL for two months now. Wha happened?

MCI was one of the Delta Express cuts post 9.11. I would not expect to see it coming back soon, as it appears that Delta Express is focusing its resources on routes from the Northeast to Florida. Plus, with the additional competition now, it seems that the flight will remain gone, with possible CRJ service if demand merits it (a la Louisville).
