Wasn't the nonstops for Indepndence Air? I DL piggy backing on Independence Air's bandwagon. DL has sure been doing this a lot lately.
Go Delta!

My mistake. DL wasn't starting non-stops to MCO from Columbia, but they are starting them out of Knoxville. It was just announced today.

If I'm not mistaken, doesn't Delta consider MCO a Delta Connection hub? Therefore, and obviously, Delta is going to protect their "turf"

I wouldn't think there would be enough traffic for 1 carrier, let alone 2 with 4 daily nonstops. We'll see.

Well, the only reason they aren't starting MCO-CAE is because they already fly MCO-CAE, twice daily.

Is DL building up more in SLC or are they downgrading it a little bit?

I wouldn't be suprised if DL started LIT-SLC CRJ7 service if they downgrade DFW any more.

I just found out though a fellow member here that DL(ASA) is starting RJ service from ATL to APF (Naples,FL) in Nov with three r.t.'s a day....
But they wont let me book at this time......phooey....
that's one route I will use if its priced within reason.

If by "within reason" you mean fares that are reasonable for an airport which will have seven daily flights on two airlines to two airports, then yes, they will be within reason.

If you are expecting bargain $230 round trips to New York City, use Ft. Myers, because you won't find them. Just for comparison, Continental's fares out on APF-EWR (with a stop in MIA) average in the high-$300s.
