Re: Delta to launch PDX-ICN in September 2021

Surprised they would not connect SLC to ICN instead given it is a hub. SLC does not have the O&D to sustain SLC-ICN. And connections are best routed through SEA, LAX, DTW, ATL and MSP? My thoughts exactly. Further, DL isn't friends with AS anymore either, so who would feed the ICN flight at PDX...
