Re: Delta Narrow Body Thread - 2020

Thanks for the reply. Maint sure gets expensive. I think an A check is weekly, a B check is monthly, a C check is yearly and a D check is every 4 years. There are some max hours allowed to be flown too for each of the 4 checks as well. Then there is Landing Gear overhaul and Engine Mx and overhaul....

Re: Delta Announces FLL-LAX

This is a rather childish move from Delta. If they wanted to build their LAX hub and support their JV with Latam, LAX-MIA is clearly the route they should've brought back. That's the higher yielding airport and actually helps their JV. But instead of doing the logic move, they are stuck on the pre-...
