Re: Odd flight path for DL1631 (LAX-DCA) 6/19

Why would it have to go through the Midwest? If the route you show is a snapshot of the route at the ter...

Re: DL CEO Says SLC-ICN "On Our Drawing Board"

I actually started a thread on this a few months ago, but my question is what plane will be used? This is a route that screams for the 787, but Delta doesn't own any. The A350/777 is too large and (I think?) the A330neo doesn't quite have the legs with the altitude of SLC. DL does own any 787s, but...

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

Seems like with Delta's definition of focus city, PDX should qualify. They have anywhere from 30-40 daily flights (depending on the season), connections to two major international markets year-round with a 3rd daily seasonal (LHR which is non-hub) and most flights to MSP, ATL, DTW, JFK are on 739s....

Re: Business Risk for Boeing: The A321XLR

Airlines would have LOVED to use the L2 door for loading. But the L2 was too close to the engine and it wouldn't work.
