DL To Start MD-88 Service To PHF On January 31

Mon Jan 03, 2005 7:31 am

I don't know if this was discussed before, but Delta Airlines is to start a once a day MD-88 service from ATL to PHF on January 31. I guess this means that a lot of people fly this route if they are upgrading from a CRJ.

I'm not surprised at all...ever since Delta launched this route a couple of years ago with 3 CRJs, it's taken off, now at 6 flights, 5 of which are CRJ-700s. The new schedule has only one CRJ-700 (4 CRJs), but it is still an upgrade of 32 seats a day, not to mention the recent CVG service.

PHF is starting to boom. FL has just expanded service to TPA, and now DL is commencing service with an MD-88. I wonder whats next?

Many years ago, United Airlines used to fly to PHF with a 737 and 727 from ORD, RIC or ORF. I don't think UA will come back if PHF is boom services. Who knows it might be coming back UA service.

Yes, you can fly to CLT, ORF, PHL, and a few other places on USX from PHF.
