Surprised they haven't started YYG....at least seasonal. Prince Edward Island is a popular summer tourist destination. Very true and same with YQY (in summer).

Thanks as always for your Sunday post always look forward to them. For DL I’m surprised they are making there JFK-KEF route seasonal especially since WOW Air ceases Operations. I’m curious as to why they are going this route. I think this is exactly why Delta made this seasonal because they no long...Jump to post
So you are blaming the DoT for approving anti-competitive JV's in the first place. OK. And then you are blaming DoT for approving DL PDX-HND because HND is a dead-end with having no JV partner at that end. I don't get it either. Its so frustrating to have one poster that literally finds anything ab...Jump to post
While all this maybe true here is the thing. Any routes Delta has added for sometime now have not be geared towards connections other than the adds made in ATL. Unlike AA and UA have been adding routes right and left to make their network more accessible while Delta has done the opposite. Delta's gr...Jump to post
With Delta's system set up so that most of their connecting traffic flows over Atlanta does that not make it a one hub airline. Atlanta has the most unique destinations not served by it's other large operations unlike AA and UA who has flights from most of their 2nd and third tier cities connected t...Jump to post

It’s unfortunately fully gone as things stand, announced earlier this month. I hope it’ll come back though at some point in the future as I still believe there’s room for ~180 seats a day on that route, especially once more European connections are added to FI’s network. AA is stile flying DFW-KEF ...Jump to post
**WW KEF-MCO FEB 0.3>0 MAR 0.4>0 APR 0.4>0 This one surprises me, not just the timing. They can't make low-fare leisure traffic route work to the Mouse House?

Is FI completely dropping DFW-KEF? I notice that in this report DFW-KEF is still showing some flights in May... So is the season just reduced to peak summer months, or is it really fully gone?

Quite a few international capacity decreases for S19 including the significant drawdown of the A330. I'll compare. TATL: LHR '18: 2x 332 - LHR '19: 1x 76W, 1x 332 CDG '18: 1x 76W, 1x 332, 1x 777 - CDG '19: 2x 76W, 1x 789 AMS '18: 1x 359, 3x 333 - AMS '19: 1x 359, 3x 333 FRA '18: 1x 76W - FRA '19: 1...Jump to post
Isn't there already a seasonal DTW-YVR by DL? I feel that ATL-YVR needs to be year round so that it can compete with WS new YYC-ATL service as YVR is a way bigger market than YYC. It's time for Detroit to get more connected to Canada. Think about this Detroit is the largest US boarder with Canada y...Jump to post

Predictions... Let's be realistic here: -DL adds more mainline service to DTW. Expect cities like RIC to get some mainline service -DL cans a few regional routes which are already served from MSP. Maybe CID being one of them -NK makes DTW-OAK year-round -DL adds a seasonal international service. Ma...Jump to post
On one of the darkest days in the history of modern commercial aviation let us take a moment to remember all those who lost their lives on this fateful day.

It's bizarre to me that WOW is holding on to DTW. Are they proving the market enough to entice Icelandair to DTW after WOW collapses? Why do you find that bizarre ? Only because they're dropping everything else, and I would expect the same at DTW. But keep in mind everything they dropped were eithe...Jump to post

I could see them adding places like LAX, BNA, AUS, MCO, and BDL.

I have to agree with klm617 on this. What DTW could need is VS back. I think that x3 flights a day on legacy carriers is overkill.
