Re: Delta plans to emerge a "smaller" carrier

UA at ORD served a ton of destinations, including many smaller/EAS destinations like SLN, CGI, CMX, EAU, DEC, MKG, PAH, CKB, LWB, SHD, and OGS. Nonetheless, I agree with the overall point that MSP and DTW will both be hu...

Re: Delta plans to emerge a "smaller" carrier

DTW and MSP are not going away. Every airline hub will be trimmed back until things get back to normal. Domestic traveling will be challenging. Flying from the US to international destinations will be a nightmare. But in time everything will stabilize, it’ll just take a while.
