Re: What is Delta Doing?

Nk and f9 definitely want more gates. They told you that? I've not seen a single statement from either saying, "we'd like to continue growing ATL, but can't because we've asked for more gates and can't get them." Any links? "Spirit Airlines Seeks More Gates at Atlanta Airport" h...

Re: What is Delta Doing?

If Delta doesn't resume operations on Concourse C within the next 90 days then the airport should take them away and give them to other airlines who desperately need ATL gates. It is clear that Delta has more than enough gates to meet their needs. Which airline(s) is (are) begging for additional ga...
