I'd rather fly to SLC on a 170, anyway. Seriously, dropping SLC isn't that big a deal given the S5 service.

Three destinations, if you include Rockford - as discussed in another thread.

NW's DTW-SLC flights were poorly timed anyways.....

DL/S5's flight times are much more convinent for business and skiing. Although, the past few times I've flown the evening SLC-DTW flight on the 170, its only had about 20 pax.

Northwest will eliminate one flight a day to 29 cities out of Detroit metro, including Traverse City, Baltimore, Columbus, Orlando, Phoenix and Allentown, Pa. It is eliminating two a day to Philadelphia.

Does anyone know what the ABE schedule on NW will be when this settles out? We went from DC-9s and Avros, to props and CRJs, back to Avros and CRJ's, what's the final alignment going to be? We've definitely lost alot of seats though no matter how you look at it. If their schedule wasn't soooo freakin stupid here, they might get pax. Two departures before 8:30am, but yet none after 4:30pm?! That's not kind to the business pax at all who want to get out in the evenings... and why after my brief forray into WorldPerks, just stopped NW for the most part and fly CO now. In addition, one of their RON planes spends 12 hours on the ground here (or did as of a couple weeks ago, their schedule has changed so much here lately I lost track). That's what you call fleet utilization.  banghead
