I noticed that Delta serves Anchorage year-round with 2 flight from SLC, one from SEA daily. the ATL service is seasonal. Also, there are two dailt ANC-FAI(Fairbanks) roundtrips. AA only serves ANC during the winter via SEA with one MD-80 or the Alaska codeshare. UA serves ANC in the winter with a daily 737-500 from SEA. CO has no flight in the winter (summer they have IAH-ANC and SEA-ANC.) TWA has no winter flights (summer STL-ANC and SEA-ANC)
why does Delta do this? is it profitable to run a 763ER to SEA from ANC and a 763ER along with a 757 to SLC daily while other airlines survive with one daily 737 or MD-80? Dont people in Anchorage travel? It is a city of 330,000 people... thats big. Maybe DL wants a trans-pacific hub there? Also, Delta is #2 at Fairbanks in terms of scheduled jet flights out of the 3 jet-airlines that fly there (Alaska, Delta and Condor) anyoen knwo why?
life wasn't worth the balance, or the crumpled paper it was written on
