Re: Kansas City Aviation Thread - 2019

How is FI doing this summer? Their fares are impressive, and for anyone utilizing the KEF stopover program is definitely coming out on top. FI's restructuring process is interesting, but I'm glad they have held on to this Midwest city.

Re: Delta Benefits from MAX Groundings

They are probably picking up some of AM's slack on the industry-focused routes. IIRC, DTW-MTY is going to be reduced in the fall due to the MAX grounding and aircraft charades.
