DL Pulls SLC-LGB Flights

Sat Oct 08, 2005 10:09 am

Delta's Salt Lake City-Long Beach flights, which has been in timetables and bookable for a little less than a month, but never formally announced, have been pulled from res systems. It was to be three daily CRJs. No idea if this is a delay or a service cancelation, but it has been pulled from the schedules indefinitley.

Also, the Miami-Salt Lake City daily 737-800 service, which was to start 1 December 2005, will now start 18 December 2005.

Interesting. They just got the slots at LGB. In fact DL only has until, I think, about Dec 1 to post bonds, etc. They then have until about June 1 to use the slots or lose them.

You know what just hit me...thats ski season...I still think they should keep it at FLL...espcially in ski season FLL-SLC is very profitable
NEXT FLIGHT: FLL-ATL-HPN on FL

It is ski season from MIA too, and MIA attracts much higher yielding travelers. MIA is the one with non-stop service to Vail/Eagle during ski season, not FLL.

And obviously, if FLL-SLC was a runaway hit, they would have added an MIA-SLC flight rather than taken the FLL frequency and simply moved it, with virtually the same schedule, to MIA.

Obviously its a little better than anticipated if they pushed it back by 2 weeks.

Not really. MIA serves no purpose for feeding a Miami-Vail flight. The MIA-EGE flights rely almost entirely on O&D traffic, and the yield is amazing. Miami is one of Vail's largest O&D markets, as well as one of Aspen's largest O&D markets.

They pushed it back by two weeks due to aircraft allocation issues. The flight hasn't even been formally announced yet.
