Re: The rest of Ohio - 2018

What upgrades did they make? I’ve noticed that CVG-LAX is now operating on the 739 at least 1x per day. To be fair, CVG-LAX is also going from 38 departures in Dec '17 (B738) to 31 departures in Dec '18 (B738). I'm still seeing 38 departures for Dec '18. Mostly it is upguages within aircraft the ty...

DL has made lots of last minute upgrades for Oct/Nov/Dec at CVG. This should help recover some passenger growth lost due to F9/G4's reductions and cutting MKE/BNA/XNA.
