American couldn't make ORD work to Asia. I would have to bet that they have much more connecting passenger traffic there compared to Alaska in Seattle.

IMO, the captain took the wrong decision. I think he was too go minded and lacked situational awareness. Wrong decision. Ample time to react and reject . I would still fail him !

United would move in to ATL, and LAX. American would take over JFK and SEA. SWA and LCCs will pick at the rest, with probably Spirit and AK duking it out in SLC. F9 picking up CVG. I can see UA taking back market share at LAX after a Delta liquidation, taking over the renovations to Terminals 2 and...Jump to post
Will be interesting to see what the FAA does, if anything. But I'll wait for them to look at all the facts. In the meantime I'll enjoy the show that the a.net crowd inevitably puts on with their virtual tar, feathers, and pitchforks.Jump to post
DL/WN/B6/AS think that they can make more money long term playing the good guy and blocking seats gaining image points. DL and AS are keeping people separated by one seat side-by-side on mainline flights but they are seating people side-by-side on regional flights. So let's quit saying they're putt...Jump to post
Are there any airlines really blocking seats so nobody sits side-by-side? And please don't list the airlines blocking middle seats on mainline aircraft while seating people side-by-side on 2x2 across regional jets, they don't get the credit they're claiming.Jump to post

Then you should have no problem posting it. Let’s see it.
I don't understand the OP's topic, is it an argument for or against DL serving Kenya? Kenya Airlines and Delta are both Skyteam members but it does not necessarily follow that there needs to be service from ATL to Nairobi. It just means you can get from ATL to Nairobi on a Delta ticket, even if you ...Jump to post
There is plenty of data here in these forums to back up my comment. No, there isn't. In fact your own previous posts contradict your post in this thread. You are well-known for continually pointing out how DL continually cuts destinations from DTW in favor of ATL. They wouldn't keep doing that if D...Jump to post

LMAO In reality American would set up shop at DTW post haste if Delta liquidated. Makes sense. In a DL liquidation, DTW goes to AA whIch then allows UA fortress hub status at ORD. Win-win. Chicago is a much much more important destination than Detroit. Even though AA is and will likely always be #2...Jump to post

JNU is way too difficult, particularly for pilots who may be unfamiliar with the approach and a plane with mechanical difficulties. Hence, they chose YXY. Makes no sense.

Many markets, like my hometown of CID, will only see one Delta flight a day. 1 CR9 to MSP and that’s it. Looks similar for MSN, DSM As well. Lots more routes chopped from DTW.

Moisture definitely sets it off. I had it go off once on my chest because of a coffee spill that was mostly dry and already embarrassing enough.
Separately, would Delta cancel a summer flight, if it is 50% full at this time but most of those seats are frequent flyer tickets from 25K to 28K miles round trip? There is no way Delta (or any airline) would fill anywhere near 50% of a summer TATL flight with frequent flyer tickets. The cancelling...Jump to post

So lets say one forgets to reconfirm their paid ticket and shows up for their full flight and the airline sold the seat to someone else? Did the airlines refund the unconfirmed passenger back in those days when they resold the seat? If not what right does the airline have to double dip by charging ...Jump to post
I'm sure there are a few routes out there where cargo is significant enough that large planes fly the route to compensate but it can't be many - maybe someone else has a few examples.
