No, there's no published , design frozen, financially committed to plan. That in no way excludes the possibility of there being a plan for Term F. Or the fact the decision is already made. And there is also the possibility there isn't, the article indicated that the plan was still under negotiation...

Safe to say that AA serves more cities out of DFW than DL at ATL? However, Delta has the frequency and volume in ATL.

RDU-LHR is not really a P2P route. LHR is considered a hub for AA because of BA.

Re: Delta at SEA, BOS, and RDU

Then they need to adjust their arrival and departure times from ATL to the upper Northeast. You can't have it both ways pad arrival times for better onetime performance and then claim a city is 2 hours away and schedule 2.5 hours or 3.00 flying time. Doesn't work like that Seems to work just great....
