Re: Phoenix Aviation Thread - 2019

All of them make sense....COS resumption is long-overdue...maybe even year-round with 2-3x daily. BNA/BIL/BZN/GUC/HDN/TUL/XNA all should be the next adds from PHX.

Bottomline, AA needs to return to TLV. UA (and DL to a lesser extent) is making bank on TLV, and a lack of AA in the market is contributing to it.

Re: Will Delta eventually go with billboard titles?

By no means am I suggesting Delta to have a branding change. However, it is more of a suggestion of enhancing its appearance, especially on aircraft with awkwardly small titles like the A321. Additionally, they would also join the ranks of WS, LX, EK, EY, QR in having bold billboard titles.

Will Delta eventually go with billboard titles?

Now that UA has joined the ranks of AA, WN, AS, B6, F9, NK and G4 with utilizing billboard titles on their fuselage, will DL eventually make a similar move? There are certain Delta aircraft (ie A321) on which the titles look unnaturally small.
