Re: NYC-Asia DL vs UA

Highly unlikely DL will start a stand alone route to HKG from JFK. They'd be going up vs. 3 x daily CX (+1 daily CX at EWR) and 1 x daily on UA also from EWR. I'd probably agree with "unlikely", but I do think it's a possibility. Sure, there's competition, but there's competition in any U...
