Here are the Q3 2022 PDEW's to the top contiguous U.S. markets traveled to from Greater Los Angeles that don't currently have DL nonstop service from LAX Great info. Thanks!

LAX777LR - I have pointed out again and again Delta has basically disappeared from in three HUGE domestic markets Two of which were decades ago: one in the aftermath of deregulation, and the other in the longterm aftermath of 9/11.... neither being even remotely relevant to today's market. As for M...Jump to post
It has to be competition. There are about 20 daily flights between LAX and ORD, with several of them widebodies. Of the 4 airlines servicing the market, it’s hub to hub for 3 of them. But how is that any different than LAX to Dallas and Houston? ....both of which have about as many flights, hub-hub...Jump to post
This is something that's puzzled me for quite some time: [ boilerplate press marketing ] As LAX’s largest global airline, Delta prides itself on providing customers with unparalleled access to and from destinations all over the world. LAX is one of Delta's key coastal hubs, where the airline today o...Jump to post
A lot of folks thought DL was crazy for giving up one of the nicest terminals at LAX (T5) in exchange for the disaster that was T3 and the slightly-renovated mess that was T2. Oh, and they were committing to about 5 years of pain along with $2 billion to fix the mess that was T2/T3. Sure, but almos...Jump to post
The response above from SurfandSnow sums up well why Utah isn’t that great for visitors. Which itself is rather inane, considering that Utah welcomed record numbers in both park related (11million) and ski related (7million) tourists, spending $11billion (constituting 8% of pax spending in the top ...Jump to post
The ULH flying Delta has missioned to the A350 is unable to be reliably flown by the early build fleet. These routes require an aircraft with better performance.

It was perhaps the worst example, but the anomaly there was FedEx ownership. Guess who is, and is likely to remain, the A330's largest operator? The allegory still applies. A fleet of 65 wasn't enough to keep MD-90 maintenance affordable. K, now tell us about all the other airlines who had MD90s in...Jump to post
I still scratch my head wondering why DL hasn’t returned with 3x daily SBA-SLC. SBA seems to be booming with the airport about to begin expansion that will include the addition of two more gates with jet bridges, expanded TSA security screening area, and a parking garage. Same as with every other &...Jump to post

I’m a little confused by your post. DL serves the Italian long haul market year round from BOS and ATL in addition to NYC, DL's about the worst example, as they have a continued partnership with the local carrier, which is a legacy of a previous immunized joint venture. Yet that's still not enough ...Jump to post
It’s well known at this point that DLs A359 on the longest routes are operating with major constraints, whether that be blocking seats or restricting cargo. No, that's not "well known"... that's something perpetually recycled among a circuit of amateurs who have come to believe it's fact,...Jump to post
Ribeye, medium rare. Porterhouse, if I'm especially hungry.

It will happen to all aircraft, but between the 787 and 330, the end will naturally and logically come earlier for the 330. Its a numbers game - there will be a lot more 787s by then (say 10 years down the road) than 330s. Yes, but the point that you keep missing, is that so long as the A33N featur...Jump to post
You are looking at short to medium term, there will come a point in time when the global A330 fleet winds down to a point where parts WILL be hard to get.

One factor working against the 330neo I don't see anybody mentioning is parts availability in the future. No one's mentioning it, because it (erroneously) assumes that the NEO wouldn't be a significant factor in the replacement cycle. There were well over 1400 A330CEOs still in service at the begin...Jump to post
The A321 backlog is so large that even if DL were to order XLR's they wouldn't arrive in any meaningful number for quite a long time. With a cheque + sufficient notice (easily throughout this year and into the next) DL could switch just about any A321 order it has into an -XLR, post certification. ...Jump to post

What I wonder about is the antitrust immunity and partnership that AC has with UA and LH, where most of AC's historical overseas flights have been routed via FRA (this was called out when ME3 were on major campaign and the Canadian government came out protecting AC.)

If UA can fill IAD to LIS/BCN/FCO in the winter months, then I figure they could do it all year round. I find it strange why certain routes are seasonal.

There would be no grounds for a lawsuit. No laws would be violated by a passenger eating nuts. I'd be curious as to where you got your law degree.

HPN-SFO cancelled before the first flight flew.
