Re: Delta transitions BOS to Hub status, names SJC, BNA, and AUS as new focus cities

Business travelers in RDU very much care about TPA, MCO, and LAS. Lots of conventions there and business ties and upcoming opportunities. But I recall somewhere that the expected amount of seat increase for these stations (including RDU and CVG) was in the single digits. So that needs to be equated ...

Wow! Delta is parking a lot of planes. I agree that the need for RON is overdue. But, if they are gonna park that many planes, they should build a hangar and do some work on them while they are there.

I wouldn't be too worried about it, it was less-than-daily last winter.


And it’s harder to fill a larger plane in the winter... they could downgrade it to a 757 daily but I am guessing cargo pushed it for the permanent 767???
