Actually the DL JFK
trip is extremely profitable for DL
, they have all the US diplomatic traffic as the US stipulates that government employees must fly a US Flag carrier wherever possible. Also as I am friends with many of the FA
's that crew that route, and have flown the route several times a year for the last 12 years, I can say that is it one of the most senior FA
routes that DL
international has. Most of the FA
's bid for JFK
as they get more time off if they operate these routings.
Also look for a ATL
route as I know DL
has been talking about this for a year or two now and are trying to secure slots for the routing at SVO
. Source for this is the Moscow times.
