What are you asking?

Delta's schedule is open through October 2019, however they will be making changes (frequencies, routes, timing, e.t.c) to their Summer schedule from now until Spring.

Take everything with a grain of salt if you are looking more than 90 days out.

Usually, someone will post a detailed schedule for the summer for each of the US airlines with the route, frequency and aircraft type. I can look at the schedules for each airline, but its alwasy interesting to see it and the various comments.

As a rough rule of thumb:

International flights are typically relatively stable 6 months out. Frequency and equipment type may be tuned until 3 months out.

Domestic flights and equipment are tuned until about 3 months out.

Everything outside of that is a placeholder / rough schedule that will generally mirror the prior years schedule inclusive of any changes rolled forward.

I would not get too focused on equipment type on any given route or flight at this point, particularly on routes that see a lot of deviation month over month or any given frequency.

FWIW I've been watching carefully, and DL just this last weekend finally loaded the finalized schedule for January/February 2019. Up until then, things had been pretty well set, but the turn times were off (e.g. a 38 minute turn for an A320 when DL typically does 45 minute turns for 320s), and I believe there were a few aircraft swaps. So don't expect a firm domestic schedule for summer until April/May.

On the international front, there still remain to be some tweaks. For example, the currently loaded summer schedule would require 34 A330-300s, while DL only has 31. You can expect to see a few routes moved from the 333 to the 339, 332, and/or 764 over the coming months. Also, we haven't heard DL's decision on U.S.-India nonstop flying yet...
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

What you're saying is you want somebody else to do the work.

Is there any information on the upcoming Mumbai flight in the summer schedule?

I have been wondering the same thing. You would think we would hear something by now, but it feels like all the talk was simply smoke and mirrors.

Peak season for India is the northern winter season, so don't expect BOM to start till late October 2019.

Correct. I wouldn’t expect an announcement until March of 2019 once the Summer schedule is more or less concrete.

I travel domestic to TVC often in summer and don't book until mid to late April at earliest as it never seems firm before then, especially re:equip. types(which matters to me)

Delta's original announcement said full details on this route (like what city) would be announced in late 2018:

it seems that the silence on India is speaking volumes and it probably was just smoke and mirrors.

I want to know how Delta is going to handle the Super Bowl rush and if any flights are added.

generally wont see any of that till the super bowl is set.

highly likely Delta adds rotations and extra capacity to the cities that send teams to the super bowl.

You mean the widebody schedule, or the full Delta schedule?

There is a Delta Widebody thread already which does something similar

But I have never seen someone post a detailed schedule for each route, frequency, and aircraft type, that list would be terribly long to look at.

Perhaps you are referring to the Delta Network thread?

It's also possible that they've been waiting to see how things go with 9W before they jump in. I'm sure any business case for restarting a nonstop to India hinged on having a strong partner on the BOM end...

All that said, DL does still have two aircraft worth of bandwith in the 77L fleet in the S19 schedule. The three frames that will have Delta One Suites will be flying LAX-CDG and LAX-SYD, and the other 7 frames are currently only scheduled to cover ATL-JNB, ATL-AMS x1, and ATL-PVG, which require 5 frames to operate.

Last year when the Superbowl Eagles won the NFC champion game, I think two days later Delta loaded the schedule for travel from PHL to MSP for the Superbowl weekend and Monday, All they did was add a bunch of B757 running basically even hour.

Things have changed since then and continue changing but post #590 of the Delta Widebody Thread provides an initial crack at it.

Sometimes FSdan will do a summer thread for the big three that will break down flights per hub and flights per type per hub. I'm assuming that is what the OP is talking about.
