The smooth merger with NW, rebranding, Richard Anderson's leadership, focus on customer service, improving in-flight products (hard and soft), operational reliability. All these factors played a part in getting DL to where it is today.Jump to post

However, I also realized I left off Aer Lingus of OW carriers, making DUB & LHR accessible non-stop. LHR is arguably the biggest O&D Euro station from SEA and I’d wager DUB has more O&D than AMS.

NW operated to India via AMS, and not from the US mainland. DL briefly took that route over and then dropped it and opted for nonstops which have all been short lived.

India is more than the few cities the ME3 serve. If flying to Pune or Surat, for example, much easier to have a one-stop connection in Delhi. AA is probably targeting this market as well.

2025 is still a long way away to even think of additional flights.

Surprised they would not connect SLC to ICN instead given it is a hub. SLC does not have the O&D to sustain SLC-ICN. And connections are best routed through SEA, LAX, DTW, ATL and MSP?

*Flights between two major cities in close proximity where there is a lot of local commuter traffic. Boston/NYC shuttle flights as well as California.

Don't think AF is going to need A332 replacements any time soon. The current ones that AF has can fly for quite a few years and they were all refurbished recently.

That’s not an excuse. Knowing they were going to lose gates temporarily in the redo of T2 and T3, Delta should have reduced flights to a more reasonable level.
