Yeah its an interesting time and all of the traditional demand / capacity planning rules have been tossed out the window. With where we are at now in this thing, almost any future bookings that haven't been cancelled were booked prior to the onset of the pandemic (March 2020). The advanced booking w...

Re: Delta plans to emerge a "smaller" carrier

Activity has really slowed down since August 1, after the significant number of reactivations in June & July to support the increased schedule. Since the schedule isn't anticipated to grow significantly in the near term I'd imagine we will just continue to see this trickle of reactivations conti...

Re: Delta plans to emerge a "smaller" carrier

I would guess that Port Authority will continue slot waivers for the duration of the crisis. If so, DL would have to do an AA and volunteer to give up slots. Why AA would do that is for another thread; I expect DL to hang on to their NYC slots. But the most likely scenario is waivers until mid 2021...

The amount of flying is way down so they aren't purchasing as much capacity, and they have all of the fixed cost and overhead for a much larger amount of flying.
Plus OO has many owned CR2s. Some of which was operating under pro-rate / at-risk and not under capacity purchase agreements.

Re: Delta plans to emerge a "smaller" carrier

Yes, the storage numbers are "murky" in the sense as you point out there are so many frames in "rolling" storage at the hubs, particularly widebodies. Like you said they may fly every few days or enough to keep them active or to avoid having to perform short-term storage procedur...
