New Delta Service To LGB(new) And MSY(old)

Wed Jan 04, 2006 6:42 am

We were all aware of the restored MSY-SLC flights, but I didn't see anything in the searches about LGB. Good news in more flight options for those going to the L.A. area.



New non-stop service to New Orleans, Long Beach brings planned Salt Lake City destinations to 100; special low fares celebrate new routes
SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 3, 2006 – Delta Air Lines’ customers will officially have 100 reasons to fly through the Salt Lake City hub this spring with the addition of the hub’s newest non-stop destinations: New Orleans, La., and Long Beach, Calif. With these routes, Delta has now announced plans to offer customers 100 non-stop destinations from Salt Lake City as of March, including service to New Orleans beginning Jan. 31, and to Long Beach on March 6. Delta Connection carriers Atlantic Southeast Airlines (ASA) and SkyWest Airlines will operate the new service to New Orleans and Long Beach, respectively, using popular Bombardier regional jets.
“Delta is proud to offer our customers more choices for travel via one of the largest airline hubs in the Western United States with the addition of our 100th Delta destination from Salt Lake City,” said Bob Cortelyou, vice president of Network Planning. “Since October, Delta customers have enjoyed the addition of flights between Salt Lake City and 11 new destinations throughout the U.S., Mexico and Canada, from as far west as Kona, Hawaii to as far east as Miami. Our new service to Long Beach and New Orleans complements the growing line-up of popular business and leisure destinations Delta customers now enjoy non-stop from Salt Lake City.”
Added Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson, "Delta's presence in Salt Lake City is an incredible asset. The airline provides extraordinary air service and is a major factor in the health of Utah's economy. It is gratifying to see Delta continually deepen its commitment to this area and offer our residents and visitors even more access to destinations around the globe.”

I take it SkyWest's CRJ's (-200s?) do not fall into LGB's "slot" controls? Good news for LGB, since they are losing AA!

Damn, I thought LGB slots were hard to get. How did they manage that? Terrific news though.

Popular with who? Perhaps more popular than the QX-operated Dash 8 Q400 flights to PDX or who-knows-where that Alaska probably has/had in mind for the 5 LGB slots made available when AA was "forced"  Wink to pull out of LGB when the Wright Amendment was eased to allow DAL-MCI/STL non-stops.

Anyone know whether the 3 daily SLC-LGB return flights announced by DL will use the LGB slots put in play by AA's departure?

LGB has 2 sets of slots. These are from the regional pool for props and small RJs. DL applied for these a few months back.

I should specify that the regional slots are for aircraft no larger than 75,000 pounds MTOW. It is why JetBlue can't use them for the E-190, it exceeds the limit.

LGB is actually old too. It was uploaded to start 1 December 2005, and canceled. Then it was going to start 15 December 2005, and again, Delta canceled the laungh. Third time is a charm. The first two times, even though you could book the flights at delta.com, there was no PR issued.

Who knows, I guess those folks that don't like to fly "puddle-jumpers." They may cost more to operate than a Q400, but they put the "scared of flying" travelers at ease.

Yea, but the first 2 times were also cancelled in pretty short order, if I remember correctly, I guess showcasing Delta's thoughts that they might not be started in time.

Don't know, but as long as its more flights out of SLC, its good news. I came through there just a couple months ago and it looked like a strong amount of DL metal and a pretty weak number of OO birds. Ever since Grinstein came onboard, he has been increasing SLC's strength, whereas Mullin was constantly cutting mainline and increasing OO.

You forgot SLC-BOI which has 3x mainline flights. Also, Spokane will lose mainline (again) on Jan 31.

DL has been hovering somewhere between 90 and 110 mainline at SLC for quite a while. While we've seen a lot of new mainline flights added (KOA, BDL, PVR), DL is usually cutting mainline at the same time on other routes.

I believe the Connection carriers operate about 300 flights from SLC for DL.

It'll be interesting to see DL's reaction to WN's arrival on DEN-SLC. DL is currently relying on almost all RJ's for the route....probably going to have to bring back more mainline.

With around 90 to 110 mainline flights and 300 connection flights, it will not be long for DL to start saying that SLC is the second largest hub, a claim that CVG held.

Bummer... I just tried searching for CLE-LGB on CO's website (hoping for CO metal CLE-SLC and either a CO codeshare or a straight DL flight (on ASA metal, of course) SLC-LGB, and when I enter LGB it tells me that "! More than one airport matches your request. Please select an airport from the list below or enter a new city, airport or airport code." (and then offers me LAX, ONT, SNA...darn it, only one airport matches city code LGB, and I though LGB was even shown as having "Connecting Airline Service" on their routemap).

If I check Delta.com it will offer to sell me a ticket (at a fairly reasonable cost), but on a E70 CLE-SLC...

Well, if my dad ever comes back out to visit I can load him on a few RJs and he won't complain (as long as I fold him over twice)... and since he's been complaining about me flying into LAX instead of LGB... (He lives about 1/2 mile off the departure end of LGB's primary runway)

Yep, as long as it is a standard CRJ-700 or an ER version. The ER hits right at 75,000 pounds but the LR is about 77,000 pounds.

We knew about LGB about the first week of November. Flying was not announced I dont believe, but there were postings for openings for corssutilized agents, supervisors, and station manager at LGB. I believe they were intra-company only.


It also said on there that the SLC-MSY flights would be on Skywest Airlines. Hmmm, it does show us taking delivery of 5 CRJ700 to be used on our Delta operation...I assume thats what we will use!!!

Actually, it said that ASA willl be operating the SLC-MSY flight  Wink .
Good to see DL reaching the 100 destinations-mark out of SLC. Surprisingly, SLC has grown very massively since the Great Regionaljetisation (lol) a few years ago when mainline was slashed. It looked like SLC would go the way of DFW, but fortunately, the opposite happened.
Now the only thing SLC lacks is a CDG flight  Wink . Yeah, like that's gonna happen, SLC's master plan will be finished before that happens :-P .
