Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2020

British Airways will be back, not sure when. Donelson pike construction should start this summer. I have been seeing workers taking core samples along Donelson pike the past couple of weeks.

Delta has been running an A220 since they restarted SLC. Next month it goes twice daily and to an A319 or B738. Not sure which one. Delta also appears to be starting LAX again next month with a B738 once daily and JFK restarts too with an A220 daily.
