Which, if we'll be honest, doesn't mean much of anything... as which direction flights head is strictly a factor of geography, and not a measure of the market's prowess in any real way.
And again, I doubt even that claim will hold; as the typical gauge in EWR rises from 77E to 77W, while DTW's shrinks from 744s to A359s.
Exactly my point thank you. Detroit is going to be less and less relevant in the Delta network as far as being their gateway to Asia it's going to be SEA and ATL while this market will continue to shrink. There is any mention of expansion in the pipeline as far as Detroit goes while there are plans is the works for LAX, SEA and ATL says a lot at how Delta views Detroit in their network over all.
