Best I can tell it's domestic routes that are almost all mainline, DTW, CLT are the only ones listed with a mix of mainline and ERJ-175s. Perhaps those ERJ-175s will be replaced with mainline.

As explained Delta cannot legally sell you what is a French domestic flight.

I really find it amazing how bad labor relations have become at Lufthansa over the last several years.
The number of job actions and war of words between the company and labor unions is astonishing.
So much for that concept of reliability that LH worked hard for decades to forge.
In Europe, there is a big push to reduce business travel due to its environmental impacts.
As sustainability becomes an ever bigger factor for companies, such concerns will impact travel policies and the resultant volume of air travel conducted.
Seems like quite a sensible idea. Let the airlines charge the customer once the transportation has been provided, similar to hotels when you check-out. Airlines still have the ability to manage and charge penalties for no-shows, but they should likewise not charge the consumer if there are schedule ...Jump to post
