Why does Delta have such a weak intl presence?

Compared to UA and AA, which fly or will fly to numerous exotic destinations, Delta seems to have a lack of international presence outside of their partner hubs. They have skipped out on serving cities like HKG, DEL, TPE, and AKL, in favor of KLM, Korean, and Virgin metal. Why is it that AA and UA a...

No, it didn't. It was (an impressive) 10.6% to get them to 35K passengers. MIA meanwhile grew at 2.2% to get to 45K passengers. However, FLL numbers are DOWN this year with the runway closure, BA's departure, among other things while MIA continues to grow. https://www.broward.org/Airport/Business/a...

Well Delta already flies MSP-YYC so I would think WS would add DTW just like it did ATL. Would give WS connections to places in the east that aren't linked via MSP.


Good idea, except ATL is a much better and larger hub.

AFAIK, VS has always been 1x @ MIA and DY recently shifted their flight over to MIA. It’s a OW downgrade in capacity for sure but not in frequency. Got it. Thanks for clarifying! ...
