What Original Western Routes Does DL Still Fly?

Wed Jul 16, 2003 3:44 am

Another good trivia topic. Obviously the SLC hub still exists, but how many former Western routes are still flown by Delta mainline (not Connection)?

To the best of my knowledge:

SLC-LAX
SLC-SFO
SLC-SAN
SLC-DEN
SLC-PHX
SLC-PDX
SLC-DFW
SLC-ORD
SLC-MSP
SLC-NYC

I'm sure there's a few more, but that's all I can think of at the moment.

The LAX-HNL, LAX-OGG, SFO-HNL, and LAX to DL), Mexico">GDL routes were all original Western routes. Others flown by DL today include:

LAX-MEX
SLC-BIL
SLC-SAT
SLC-TUL
SLC-OKC
SLC-GTF
Plus others

On DL Connection are these old Western routes:
SLC-AUS
SLC-ABQ
SLC-FAT
SLC-COS
SLC-OMA
Plus a number of others in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, etc. and others that I can't remember right now.

This might help. I found this Western route map from just a month before DL bought them. It looks pretty close to DL's western operations today except for the cuts at DL's old LAX hub. Looks like I was doing a pretty good job remembering specific routes.
