Song Adding New City Tuesday...

Fri Jul 30, 2004 11:04 pm

Not necessarily to compete with the recent Jetblue thread. However Song will be expanding come Tuesday (8/3) with the addition of a new city. It is an international destination and it is not SDQ. Again the announcement isn't scheduled until Tuesday (8/3)
It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

Are the pulling planes from another route to support this new destination? Or are they just getting more out of the existing fleet?

Getting more out of the exisiting fleet. I didn't hear any routes being lost that Song flies. Song is getting back a 757 that mainline took from them in May to help support the parked 767-400.

I wonder if it would be STT. It's a big leisure market with very high fares from the continental US (CO from EWR to STT next March is pricing out at ~$750).

Hey ERJ170-I've heard that DL uses Song aircraft to substitute for DL mainline flights sometimes...

The only Song flights I've seen at RDU were diversions. RDU seems to be DL's main diversion center for ZNY/ZBW to FL flights.

Do they already serve SJU?

ERJ170,

Are you pondering that North Carolina break off from the United States to become an international destination? I think Delta bringing in 767s to RDU is more likely.  Big grin

I've seen several SONG 757's at CVG over the past couple of months. We all know that SONG is not coming to Cincinnati, so obviously these are equipment substitutions. Just viewing a SONG aircraft at CVG is as close as this airport will ever come to seeing affordable fares.

I would love to see PHX! We lost our daily (Delta) non-stop JFK flights and a return with Song would be great! If not to JFK, then MCO or TPA (I can wish)!

Will be great news to see the airline expand instead of implode as everyone is speculating. Possible only for heavy tourist peak times then cease.

on a Song side note. Was checking loads today on flights from LAX-TPA and LAX-MCO non-rev for Aug 8, "Not Recommended at This Time." - ie, the flight is full and don't even try it. Of course this was on a Sunday morning flight. The TPA-LAX flight on Aug 4 had 70 available seats.

DL needs to make the whole airline like Song, except the international
routes possibly. Most of the people sitting in domestic first class are
not paying F fares, but are up there as a result of the unlimited free
upgrades that Medallion members get.

I say Song will begin MCO or FLL or TPA to RDU.

That's my guess and I am sticking with it,

My understanding is that Song is going to be folded back into Delta due to a lack of success? Delta will have aircraft painted in Song's colors, yet they will be Delta aircraft.

How can one discuss Song adding a city when in fact they will not exist as a separate entity within the next 6m?

Doubt Song will be folded back in. Actually, I think Song will be sold to someone sooner or later, a la BA and Go.

As for the new destination, my bet's on AUA.

I'm not saying that Song has never been at RDU. I've seen them a few times myself as equipment changes, but it said it would be an international destination. I guess some people missed that.

The Song 757's pop up throughout the system occasionally as substitutions. I know that it's been into Norfolk (ORF) once or twice before. What's the story on this parked 767-400 mentioned above?

Delta does sometimes use a spare Song aircraft as a substitute for mainline equipment if need be. Most customers don't mind, the upgraded Medallion passengers are given free additional upgrades on later flights, and the flight is flown with DL flight attendants and one Song flight attendant who can assist in helping with the IFE if needed.

Delta has recently been using a Song airplane for flights from ATL to LAS in order to allow those passengers to experience what Song has to offer.


Glideslope,

Your post isn't holding water. Song aircraft are already owned by Delta, but they operate as a seperate entity. As far as them being folded up, where did you hear that? There are some folks on here who would love to see that happen sooner rather than later, but Jerry Grinstein has said himself that Song is making money and doing better than even he expected it to do. So whoever gave you your understanding wasn't telling you the truth.

I doubt DL will get rid of it's domestic first class even if it is a bunch of Medallions flying up there. Remember, we Medallion flyers are Delta's revenue base. Piss us off and we'll find an airline who can afford to reward their best customers. Medallion flyers would be the last customers Delta would want to alienate.
