I wonder how much of a role the AM/DL JV had in the Mexican authorities not giving EK what they wanted. If the media were to question EK about this, they would vehemently deny it, but I have a feeling that DL/AM may have something to do with it... Hopefully, AM/DL did have something to do with it. ...Jump to post
Looks almost identical to what DL has been using in Delta One on their 757s for several years now: https://travelskills.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Screen-Shot-2014-06-24-at-10.33.27-PM.png https://thepointsguy.com/2017/08/delta-one-757-200-flight-review/ It would be nice if lie-flat seating cont...Jump to post
With the power of the ATI-immunized TATL JV with DL, I suspect that AF will be much more successful this time around. I wish them great success. Still, it would have been better to see KLM open daily DFW-AMS service. AMS connections are so much easier and more pleasant than connections via CDG. It's...Jump to post
I remember that commercial you mention, but I don't ever recall seeing a version of that commercial which included shots of the JFK Worldport. Like you, I suspect that could well have been an alternate version of the same commercial intended for the NYC market. You may wish to contact the DL Archive...Jump to post
WN's BOS operation is not doing to well, MKE, IND, and CMH were reduced last year, now AUS, BNA, and BWI this year WN will likely continue to struggle in BOS and will continue to make reductions, IMO. The BOS market is owned by B6 and DL. WN's coverage of major routes from SEA is starting to feel l...Jump to post
The major strike against such an aircraft is that the marketplace has already spoken, the consumer is happy flying existing narrowbody planes over longer distances.

United and Qantas are the only two airlines on record to need a smaller widebody. Not quite. DL also has significant needs in this area, primarily to replace their large 763ER fleet, but also for some domestic upgauging and short haul international growth. Their interest in NMA is real and have pub...Jump to post

AA is in a really difficult spot at JFK, having far more slots and terminal real estate there than they need. I don't think it is unreasonable to ask: How long until AA's operational cost footprint at JFK becomes cost prohibitive? Are we already there? - They need to feed their partners, especially ...Jump to post
Sourced from arabianbusiness.com ....... Really? Might just as well have come from Al Jazeera.
About Delta, I think they may increase the order (including with 251t airplanes), to replace their older A330ceos. For the 767s, they may likely go for the A330-800neo. DL ordering the A330-800neo makes no sense, either to replace the 767 fleet or otherwise. It is looking more and more as if the ma...Jump to post
AA's instrument in the cabin policy clearly states that the additional seat must be a window in the bulkhead (with a divider) for the instrument. Based off of the image provided in the article, this was not the case so AA was well within their rights to ask the passenger to exit the plane. Consider...Jump to post

If the gate cap at DAL went away, AA could establish a focus city at DAL with nonstop service to its hubs plus other top destinations such as ATL, AUS, BOS, DEN, DTW, FLL, IAH, HOU, MCI, LAS, MSP, MSY, EWR, MCO, STL, SAT, SAN, SFO, and TPA.

That's good news. I have never understood why UX has been a stepchild and taken a distant back seat role in SkyTeam for as long we they have been a member. Time to step up and increase cooperation, connectivity and codesharing with other SkyTeam member airlines.Jump to post
I am all about supporting American companies, but I believe that Boeing got exactly what they deserve in this case. Let Airbus and Bombardier join forces to support a free market.

Wow, that's expensive. Wow, that is a really uninformed comment. Let's look at some basic math.......... With 376 seats on a 744, assuming all are filled with a paying passenger and assuming that everyone is paying that same maximum fare of $399 USD, that comes out to just over $150,000 USD.

I'm skeptical of RDU being able to profitably support three daily network carrier flights nonstop to Europe. It would not surprise me at all to see DL service RDU-AMS, especially now that DL is beginning to use RDU for connections. In shopping itineraries which have traditionally been routed via MS...Jump to post
I think the C-Series will be definitely be used to upguage DFW-LGA / -JFK / -LAX. Would not surprise me at all to see DL (finally) add DFW-SEA. Upguages on DFW-SLC / -MSP / -DTW are also strong possibilities. And thinking about DL continuing to develop the focus cities, I'll also go out on a limb an...Jump to post
VA is going down a very slippery slope. They need a Reg Ansett-level leader, and better network planning, rather than a mixed bag of codeshares and frames. Sounds like it may be time for another carrier to make a significant equity investment, replace the management/network/revenue management teams...Jump to post
Compared to AA at LHR, DL at AMS is much more focused on local traffic Your evidence of this? I HIGHLY doubt this is accurate. LHR is an exponentially larger market. We all know AMS is the connection hub, yes there is some decent-sized local traffic, but its primary function is connections. It is t...Jump to post
I've thought for quite some time now that interesting things would begin to happen once VS was folded into the DL/AF/KL transatlantic JV.

It would be ironic for DL to pick those up if they were to become available. As satisfying as would be (for some), it won't happen. Why? 1. DL will very soon begin accepting delivery of the first 15 (of 25) A350s, built according to DL specifications. 2. DL is in no urgent need for additional A350s...Jump to post
I believe part of DL's wish list for Terminal A at BOS is a CPB facility to avoid the E-A transfer. Not sure what the status of that request is, though.
