Re: DL adds a slew of new and returning leisure routes for the summer

Do they need the runway performance? JAC is high and the runway isn’t super long. I'd assume it's performance, but wouldn't the A319 have been a better fit? Can the 319 do it reliably? IINM the 319 can’t do TGU-ATL, which is similar as far as flight and runway length but only about half the elevati...
