Anybody know why DL5756 JFK-DFW just diverted to CMH? I checked to see if it was some sort of error only to see the route was correct on Delta.com.

Re: The Rest of Ohio - 2021

Random question about DL and CMH and IND. Both CMH and IND have roughly the same population (CMH is actually larger) and roughly the same demographics and both are a large DL outstation. I've been curious about this. How come IND tends to get mainline service from DTW, while CMH only gets E75? The ...

In July, the 0900 departure to IAH goes from an E75 to a 739. Denver looses it's A319 in July, but gains ...
