Re: Delta transitions BOS to Hub status, names SJC, BNA, and AUS as new focus cities

As much as I love DL, this announcement comes as a shocker to me overall: I was just in AUS two weeks ago. Other than the Sky Club Construction (and signage for it), there's hardly any mention to be made on DL out of this so-called "Focus City." I fly DL a lot as a status member but I'm no...

SLC seems to have great service for a city of its size. Maybe a few more frequencies would be nice, especially to the East. The SLC CSA is ...
