The A220 most definitely does not have the range to fly SFO-Europe and even NYC is still too far without some serious load restrictions (and even then I don’t think it would be enough for a LCC model). That would only work in an all-premium service like BA does with the A318.Jump to post
I wonder how many seasoned DL passengers would rather fly IND-DTW-AMS-XXX over IND-CDG-XXX just to avoid dealing with CDG? I've heard enough stories about CDG that I would be half tempted to avoid it myself. I may be in RDU now but I'd be tempted to do a connection in the US to AMS over a flight to...Jump to post

Plans are starting to become public for Amazon’s project at CVG. Phase 1 opening in 2021 will have room for 100 aircraft, while the later phases should have room for at least double that.

Just added it up and F9 is down 8.7% for the fall in seats. Given that some routes had pretty low load factors, I think most of the drop in seats will be made up by increased loads.Jump to post

How are some of the city pairs yielding over 1.0? Interesting chart . Thanks!

I agree that IAD-MEM is a glaring hole in the network. The city wants MEM-CVG back as well. The flight from an ~80% load factor to ~25% load factor when Delta changed the timings.
