Re: Delta transitions BOS to Hub status, names SJC, BNA, and AUS as new focus cities

DL views focus cities as having frequent service to most hubs. P2P doesn't factor into Delta calculations. By that measure, wouldn't MSY be a focus city? It has multi-frequencies to all hubs except SEA.... DL is falling behind, though, as AA is now the largest legacy carrier at MSY and UA is buildi...

Block & turn times per gate are there for a reason. That's why you're waiting. Moving a flight from one gate to another is truly a pain in the butt so to avoid doing that, they put a wheels up on the flight and to also meter arrivals.
