I know DL tagged flights between IAH-ATL-LOS and vice versa but I noticed today that flt 54 and 55 are now tagged to BWI. Has the launch of UA to LOS already impacted DL?
|Quoting toobz (Reply 10):|
I wouldn't go that far. DLs flights perform well if not very well in BE, based on bookings. I couldn't tell you what the yields were but we don't know that for UA either. There is plenty to go around for both airlines.
|Quoting toobz (Reply 5):|
Yeah Triple, I'm not sure why they chose BWI. I guess since UA started IAH, DL beancounters have come to the conclusion that BWI would be 2nd best...No clue as to why! Interesting.

Maryland has a large and growing Nigerian population (in fact I think it might be the state with the largest Nigerian population, although Houston and New York City have larger populations than any one place in Maryland), that is the only reason I can think of as to why DL would link it to BWI.

BWI is one of their top flow destinations, if not the top destination, hence the thru flt

Africa-U.S. hasn't turned out be as lucrative as many - myself included - thought it would be.

With the exception of ATLJNB, DL's African adventures have been all over the map, literally

Last week I was on the UA non-stop 767-400 to GIG from IAH, the plane was packed as was BF, the guy next to me said he was doing his 28 days off shore, he said many of his work buddies were in BF. I did think "wow, UA is really carving out their piece of the petro industry" how many BF seats are there on a UA 764?
