My source works for DL at DAB, but that doesn't mean he's reliable.

Who there is your source? ( I know 1/2 of them)
DAB was pushing for DAB-JFK for a while with little success. I certainly dont see BWI on the radar, nor DCA since UA already does IAD 2x. DL has cut back alot at DAB over the past 2 years... at one point when i worked at DAB there was over 10 daily with 3 destinations. This fall its ATL only and 2-3x mainline 2-3x RJ, CO and UA have stepped up to pick up the slack but even with that the traffic has still been down over 20% in recent months. With FL DL may see their DAB market share below 50% for the 1st time in over 10 years, but as they say.. snooze you loose...

Who knows maybe DL has learned being in bankruptcy that it is more important to have routes that produce revenue over protecting market share at whatever costs.
|Quoting DAL767400ER (Reply 6):|
That depends on ones bias . Some people will only see DL adding ATL routes to Air Tran markets like BMI, while others will see DL dropping countless TPA/FLL/MCO RJ routes against varying carriers. Overall, DL has gotten tamer compared to the past, but if something "serious" were to happen, say B6 trying CVG, or ATL (again), Delta would open fire. But definitely not from a market like DAB that's not worth it. And sure as hell not with some random stuff like DAB-BWI that doesn't even closely fit into DL's route map.

I believe you are wrong. CO only has 2 daily flights to EWR and an extra frequency on Saturday. This is 15 weekly ERJ flights. CO is hardly "picking up the slack".
