Probably shouldn't share exact values, considering the month is not over and I don't want to look crazy when the T100 comes out.

I will say that my numbers show May '19 IND-CDG as sizably higher than May '18, but June '19 vs. June '18 looks like it will be closer

As for proximity to ATL, I agree with you on that also, but note that the distance between DFW...
