Re: Delta Extends A220 order book to 90 aircraft

This gives the 73G a kick right in the engines with the A223 doesn't it? 130 pax... Why didn't DL order the 7M7 for fleet commonality? DL used to fly MD88's depending on the time of year ATLLAS.

Re: AS expands presence at DAL

keep in mind, there's no 320's into DAL at all with this new sked. so the equipment is half the size. almost the same amount of seats, just more flights in/out, to make it look busy. They need to re-open LGA, and add ORD, ATL, DCA, RDU, AUS--Get the nation's tech centers involved
