Their enroute times have lengthened as winter winds have strengthened. The flight is now enroute for as long as 16 1/2 hrs - that's in the air, not block to block
|Quoting Panamair (Reply 3):|
I've noticed that they have re-jigged the DL 17 flight times after a month of operations, no doubt applying some lessons learnt. The ground time in BOM is now almost 3 hours (2 hours 55 to be exact) compared to 2 hours before. DL16 arrives BOM 10:10pm and DL 17 now doesn't leave until 1:05 am (used to depart at 12:10am); this should help provide additional cushion in case DL16 arrives late from ATL and JFK.
|Quoting B4real (Reply 4):|
Yes they did. The flight was consistently late, and that can be a big problem downstream with a very limited (8) 777 fleet for DL.
|Quoting Alaska737 (Reply 2):|
is there a thread or info on that??? sounds interesting and possible scary for passengers.
|Quoting Panamair (Reply 5):|
...not to mention the fact that DL 17 JFK-ATL would potentially show up on the DOT's on-time performance "list of shame" for November - something DL doesn't need given the DCI on-time issues at JFK...
