New DL FNT-ATL Service Effective September 20

Wed Aug 06, 2003 5:09 am

Effective September 20, Delta Air Lines will add FNT-ATL service: three daily CRJ, two on Saturday. The new service will be operated by Comair DBA Delta Connection. It will supplement four existing FNT-CVG flights.

(take that, TOL fans!  Smile )

Not exactly – NW, DL and several other carriers are forced to match many of FL’s fares (especially those to/from ATL) ex-DTW… FNT has preformed extremely well for DL – mostly at the expense of DTW (three years ago DL flew three B763 and several B752 ATL/DTW exclusively… now it’s nothing but MD-88 – and a couple of B732 have crept onto the schedule).

Surprised that it didn't start a long time ago......just seems that Delta is spreading out their market....DTW is down to all M88s while FNT and TOL (and DTW-DFW) are expanding. Good for FNT.

Myself I would take the 717 over a regional jet any day of the week. Although for the FNT market you normally would have to fly a smaller plane and then connect on most any destination offer from FNT with the exception of flying to a hub city. So for the die hard DL fans and mileage whores it is a good thing, like Martha would say.

Take that TOL fans? Hmm...good for FNT.  Smile This brings them to 7 DL flights now...our 13th started a couple days ago. Then later this fall we have 3 flights to DFW coming online as well...I say we are doing well.  Smile However, this is a FNT thread. Good job guys!

Ouboy79,
It was pure sarcasm, no offense meant... when will DL begin TOL-DFW? I’m not doubting that you could have inside information, but it seems out of character for the DFW hub & it’s certainly not on the schedule…
