Re: What Will Replace DL's 757-351?

I will be shocked if Delta takes the 797 until it is in operations for a couple years. I know it left that principle with the 220, and after the previous CEO’s departure, but they will probably be more cautious after Boeing’s latest plane issues.

With AA building up DFW to 900+ flights, the surging Texas population/economy and the construction/renovation of Terminals F and C looming, AA at DFW will likely surpass DL at ATL in total number of flights. Nonetheless, ATL will still have a large lead in pax and ASM. Could DFW close the gap in to...
