Shuttle America Opens ATL Base, 40 Lines

Tue May 22, 2007 10:50 am

Effective July 1st, Shuttle America d.b.a. Delta Connection will open their 4th crew base, in ATL, with an estimated 40 lines of flying. Our memo is calling for 90 flight attendants, of which I bidded. My guess is we are expecting a major expansion for DL 170 flying in ATL, as that base is pretty big for a start up. Good news for all of us Southeastern commuters, I will not have to use any airport but my GPT since it is now a one leg commute.

Nice to see that the EMB-170 is planned for expansion out of ATL - I'd love for some of these to replace CRJ-700s on the MHT-ATL run; would love to get some F seating back on this route.

Relax dude. This is how information gets out to the board. He's not posting verbatim State secrets...

FYI its not a company memo, its a fragment, and yes, its freedom of speech. Per company policy, I did not post the memo.

I wouldn't necessarily expect a major increase in 170 flying for Delta, just yet. I would expect to see IND and CMH lose some (if not all) Delta flying in their bid packets - much like ORD has been experiencing.
Prepare doors for departure and cross-check.

Any word on what kind of routes Shuttle will be undertaking out of Atlanta?
About how many flights a day does all this work out to.....unless of course, it is State secrets.  Wink

I'd love to get 170 service back at MLI pray  . It came in right after I left for school last year, and of course, left right before I came back for the summer. Sad I was told that the planes were full or close to it every day they were in operation, but were withdrawn because Shuttle didn't have enough to go around and needed them at bigger stations. Of course, if we ever do get them back with my luck it'll be after I go back to school again.  banghead
