I am likely missing something - and apologies if posted elsewhere - but did the Patriots use a DL charter for their SEA trip? I noticed a DL 764 from BOS to SEA on Friday (matching up closely with the team’s travel plans) and another returning tonight after the game. I don’t know of a regularly sch...Jump to post

Not a good sign when executives start jumping ship.
3) BOS seems to be getting pulled down the most (LGW, FCO, EDI won't start). BOS is losing LIS, EDI, LGW, MAN, FCO. The last 3 were supposed to have started this summer. JFK is losing SNN, PRG, CPH, GLA, BER. Additionally they are losing 1 LHR frequency and KEF is not daily. So equal complete desti...Jump to post
Looks like DL extended some more suspensions this weekend though Christmas: SEA-IND/TPA/MCI RDU-AUS/BNA/CLE/IND/PIT/CMH CVG-STL/IAH/BDL/MCI (CVG-YYZ looks completely gone after December) BOS-MEM/ORF/BUF/PBI/MIA SLC-CMH/CLE/MSN Not surprising on some of those.

Was there an AA 767 in BOS today? Just about an hour ago, I saw something that looked like an AA 763 overfly in Billerica . It was flying unusually low and it looked like it was climbing and made a light turn to the south. I've never seen a commercial aircraft that low over this area. And I haven't...Jump to post
So, now that the dust is starting to settle on the employees taking the retirement packages. It looks like approximately 500 above/below wing employees in MSP have taken the package. Looking like a little over 1000 above/below wing employees have taken it in ATL, add to that over 30 OSM (front line...Jump to post
At the rate DL is cutting BOS, you wonder if they need the A-satellite ever again. They might not need them right now but no way they're gonna give them up. Gate space is pretty valuable in BOS and Delta has shown they're not planning on just handing BOS over to AA/B6. I must have missed something ...Jump to post

I wonder how demand in and out of BOS will change with the new measures on the quarantine for out of state travelers. For these to work, some form of authority needs to meet each and every flight (like Hawaii) and document everything for each person (like Hawaii). That doesn't seem likely to be the...Jump to post
I think the DL Aug numbers is actually the average of their Aug/Sep numbers. I believe everything for DL is for September and not August. The initial August schedule was loaded a couple of weeks ago and there were some recent reductions from that (1,000 flight increase from July now reduced to 500 ...Jump to post
Based on the timing of this and Ed Bastian's previous comments that they are unlikely to add more routes until end of the year, I think this could very well be retaliation for the AA/B6 Partnership. They haven't seem to catch on to JetBlue's focus shifting from Boston to New York. It absolutely is ...Jump to post
DL schedule was reduced from the original plan for August. Now at 35 flights per day and CDG was one of the routes removed. September is tentatively at 65 flights.

I would also like to hear a clearer plan/timeline for insourcing work. There's been bits and pieces, but nothing comprehensive.

It might even be fleet wise. From what I have been hearing, all MDs and 777s will be retired. (I personally am sad at both.)

Did I read on this site somewhere that DL A321s don’t have auxiliary fuel tanks? American and JetBlue operate A321s on transcon flights, so it would seem irrational to say the A321 isn’t capable.

Was truly amazes me is that even with 100 A321... DL still can not replace the 757 in many of the missions is utilized. Logical fallacy. The sole reason DL has a large 757 fleet is simply because it and NW purchased a large number of late models of the type. NW preferred to add the 321 for commonal...Jump to post
They're definitely focused on May first. At least as of now there will be more flying across the Atlantic and Pacific than there is right now. It could go month-by-month for a while, but I think eventually there will be some announcements of seasonal Atlantic flying being cancelled for this summer.Jump to post
