Re: Delta buying 20% of LATAM

Back to the article...the only route on which LATAM and Delta both fly is GRU-JFK. No overlap elsewhere. However, I could see in a JV LATAM ceding some flying to Delta, possibly MIA to secondary Brazil (where LATAM would fly a narrow-body today) as well as to MCO...with DL ending GRU-JFK on its own...

Re: UA Long Haul Capacity Changes - Some Questions

The W19/20 77W schedule is as follows: EWR - PVG/GRU/NRT/BOM/TLV 2x daily; and from SFO - TPE/NRT/FRA 2x daily. By my count this flying would only require 15 frames.
