IMHO you will see CX jumping to *A first (thus partnering with UA) before you will ever see DL partnership In exchange for what?

My main point is: if you are an airline like AF, have a monopoly at one of the largest airports and cities in the world, and your largest aircraft is the a359, you are doing something wrong.

An a339 is not flying westbound against the jetstream from the us east coast or midwest to Japan with any worthwhile payload. How do you come to this conclusion?

DL’s sky-high fares completely kill basically any chance of DTW-LHR growing.

There is absolutely room for growth, but DL artificially suppresses it. Smart business, sure...Jump to post
Sure, it couldn't possibly be the massive, underserved pools of demand... Most of the demand that's been addressed has been stimulated at cost point, not access or routings.

I think the 787-10 would be an outstanding choice for DL. SEA-ICN, SEA-PEK, SEA-TYO come to mind as well as JFK, DTW, and ATL to AMS and CDG.

it seems AM/DL is very weak compared to AA. In what regard? It seems like you're thinking in terms of transborder nonstops; but that's not really the model that AM/DL seem to be constructing. More along the lines of DL fills AM's hub/focii, while flying to CUN from various destinations on weekends.Jump to post
