Re: Delta pilots file objection to expanded JVs

Those saying DL serves fewer TATL destinations than they did 10 years ago are likely correct, but unless DL's TATL capacity/total flights are also lower I'm not buying the pilots' argument. Pilot jobs are tied to total flights, not unique destinations served.
