Who Is Going To Replace ACA For DL Connetion?

Sat Oct 30, 2004 4:46 am

Any news on who is going to replace ACA for DL Connection? I had heard that Skyway was going to fly the 328 jet but I've not seen anything to confirm this. As of 02NOV here in ATW all flights to CVG are now CRJ's being flown by Comair. Any one know anything?

As of right now, no one. Comair will backfill the routes out of CVG where ACA flew FRJ's and the FRJ's will be grounded.

SkyWay was the prime candidate to take the FRJ's and fly them for DL. However, that deal has been delayed until DL can get its financial house in order.

I also thought ASA was going to replace a few flights, I noticed CVG-CID is slowly being switched over to Comair.

At Skyway we are waiting on a contract with DL to start service. As of right now there is noone to commence service after the current contract expires. With the ASA crews believe it or not they are all going to either ATL or SLC. No transfers to the new CVG base. So we will see what happens when DL gets their ducks in a row.

Does DL want to keep the 328 in the fleet?

Yes they do. Comair actually inquired about using them but DL told them to cool their heels. And the OH crews are getting pissed because of that.
