Re: OAG Changes 9/23/2018:AA Adds PHL-SRQ; DL Drops CVG-MKE; Many F9 Changes

Quite a few reductions for transcon flying out of SLC by DL. CLE suspended for the winter. TPA down to 5x weekly. PIT was just reduced to 6x weekly recently. BWI also gets trimmed.

Does this have to do with this construction project at SLC?
