I wonder if that will force CP to relocate their HQ since they currently occupy space in DL building C at MSP Plenty of space in the old TWA HQ in STL. Just gotta mind the roof leaks and critters. My guess is that's what would end up happening. They are part of Trans States Holdings. If they don't ...Jump to post

It’s worth reminding that from all indications the new Midwest Express: --Will not have wide premium seating and meals…the business model which supported those high costs has not worked for a couple of decades. --Will not serve the big competitive business markets out of Milwaukee like New York, Da...Jump to post
But isn't HND a slot controlled airport? So from where are the additional slots coming? They were awarded 5 additional pairs in May 2019 from the DOT to go along with what they currently offer to HND. https://www.transportation.gov/briefing-room/us-department-transportation-proposes-us-airlines-and...Jump to post

The world is going frickin’ nuts. There has to be something in the food or water or something. People just can’t act like civilized people anymore. They’ll lose their mind and don’t care who sees it.Jump to post
Delta resume GRU flight from DTW and adding MSP-GRU or LAX-GRU? Most likely DL could offer day-time GRU-ATL and ATL-GRU a couple of days per week in high season to allow connections @ ATL. Other than that DTW-GRU or others highly unlikely.. DTW-GRU started out, a number of years ago, as daily and s...Jump to post
So essentially DL is shifting one of their LHR slots for winter from DTW (x2 to x1) to SLC (x0 to x1). Maybe capture some ski traffic plus Mountain West connections? It is probably worth a try. DTW-LHR seems to be one of those routes where the demand is a little too big for 1 daily, but not quite b...Jump to post
DL didn’t operate that aircraft this last winter on the route. I'm not sure of what you're trying to say, but on double check I think the YoY A330 comp was the same. I was thinking the W17/18 rotation started in December, but I was wrong - it started in January. The lack of it in W18/19 wouldn't ha...Jump to post
2 Cancún, Mexico 288,280 Down by more than 12,000, probably due to SY focusing on other markets more I didn't keep track of DL/SY's CUN frequencies this winter, but DL didn't operate the A333 this winter like the previous. That would have removed quite a few thousand seats assuming constant frequen...Jump to post
90 minute flight, and she slept through everything? Was she on some sort of medication? No one sitting the the seat next to her during the flight? De-boarding flights IMO are very noisy and disruptive anyways and she didn't hear all that noise? No one meeting her at the airport? If so you'd think th...Jump to post

Deja vu of 2010-11. It basically doesn't fly all winter past Christmas now. I doubt we'll see MSP-HNL increased to compensate.
Thanks as always for your Sunday post always look forward to them. For DL I’m surprised they are making there JFK-KEF route seasonal especially since WOW Air ceases Operations. I’m curious as to why they are going this route. MSP-KEF has always been seasonal for DL. So not foreseeing anything chang...Jump to post

DTW-AMS on KLM is long overdue. And why is that? There are already 4 flights on that route. One of them an A350. Obviously SkyTeam feels that’s plenty. Would you be willing to give up say... the A350 just to get a KL tail in Detroit? :lol: Absolutely I would give up the A350 to get a KLM flight her...Jump to post
Wasn’t it one of the pilots strike that grounded the entire fleet but a handful of 747 aircraft flying domestic routes? I think you might be referring to an incident that took place in the late summer of 1998. Northwest management walked away from pilot negotiations, locking out their pilots and sh...Jump to post

Didn’t NW have a history of union issues? Seems like the pilots union, for one, was always a hotbed of problems.Jump to post
I think one of the things that people have over looked is what do the Delta awards of HND mean for MSP-HND. Before MSP-HND was unique as it was the only connection point for Delta for customers who wanted to fly to HND instead of NRT. Now that has all changed because Delta customers can access HND ...Jump to post
I wouldn't rule out a return of DTW-NGO-MNL. The demand from NGO is stronger in premium classes, while the demand from MNL is stronger in economy class. These two complementary markets were served by a 744 in the past, and could be served by a 339 in the future. DL doesn’t have the Asian network li...Jump to post
Looks like BWI-MSP was changed to ONT-MSP.

Is this the DTW fanboy club or the WS/DL JV discussion?

If this is true I'm sure other airlines are feeling a bit like keeping Boeing at arms length. Sounds like a rocky road ahead for Boeing.Jump to post
