Interesting. It appears DL is trying to expand westward more from CVG.

I'm assuming nothing ever came to fruition of the propsed CVG-BIL that was discussed on here a while back.

Great news for Delta and CVG. This is a new destination for Delta. They have been adding destinations like crazy from CVG:

Billings, Amsterdam, Rome (resumption), Traverse City, Honolulu, Champaign, New Haven, Springifield/Branson...

CVG-BIL started already, double-daily CRJ-700. Loads are (or were, they might have improved) horrendous, though. The first flights were going out with as little 3-10 passengers.

Sioux Falls appears to be doing a nice recruiting job. First Allegiant, now this.

I understand they are working with firm from Oregon called Sixel Consulting Group to recruit airlines. Just a few days ago they said to expect 2 new announcements about new service. One was to be early summer which I assume is this route. The other airline is supposed to come in late summer.

Scottysair, I went to the link and read about this new "Delta" service. Lo and behold it is a regional jet. In fact it is actually Comair. It is not Delta. The flying public is sick and are tired of all the deceit surrounding new services announced by the majors when it is really a cramped little "jungle jet." The average traveler isn't aware they are not traveling on a "real airliner." So future posts are more accurate, thread titles need to start out with "Delta Connection" or "Comair" starts service, not Delta. "Continental Express" begins service, NOT Continental, for example. Several others here have started doing just that. Thank you. Shame on all of you that are saying that this is "DL's" new service, when it is anything but.


(((Ok, anyone who reads my posts knows all the above it purely tongue and cheek, total BS. But since nobody has written a post like that in this thread, I went ahead and did so for them, stealing their thunder)))

I am happy we are expanding westward, and I think Fargo should be next on the list!  Big thumbs up

The thing to keep in mind about the BIL flights is that pretty much any new service needs a few months to catch on, so don't be so quick to throw in the towel...

mmm...jet fuel...
