EK currently has 168 undelivered 777s on firm order, according to boeing.com. Airbus.com lists 47 undelivered aircraft for EK as of 30th of June.

Given all the southward int'l connections from HOU, I agree--its a much smarter move for WN than a CLE-DAL route. Just curious---as DAL is their home/hub, why are all the int'l flights out of HOU instead of DAL? Is this a legacy of the Wright Amendment and HOU had all these flights but Wright was s...Jump to post

I think we can all agree DCA is a lot more competitive than it ever has been before with the addition of WN and B6 (fares down 10% over 10 years), So in that way, the stated goals worked.

IMO, the international gate situation is moot if DL chooses to start CVG-LHR (still by far the most likely scenario).

I expect this is when we will see some routes, frequencies and/or cities cut to assist in this transformation.
On the other hand, how does 67 new deliveries in a year stack up in history? 87 retirements also is the total for this year. This all per the press release about last year's results.
