On the AA side it looks like the CLT mainline is being swapped for that second LAX flight. I would look for any winter mainline (CLT or a return of PHL) to appear in the afternoon. AA is pretty constrained on mainline gate capacity, with those operations being confined to the South side of B (19, 21, 23, 25). I would guess their next mainline gate would be B28, but I do not think it has been used for that in a long time. All good problems to have as the growth continues.
For about 3 weeks in November, AA will indeed have 5 RON mainline jets in CMH per the schedule mentioned by DeltaRules. After that it will go to 4 when DFW looses a frequency. Not quite sure how they'll gate them - B28 was modified for regional jet use - I'm not sure if the envelope was adjusted as well. I didn't realize B20 was modified for mainline usage - B22 was the original dual-purpose bridge where USAirways would park the occasional 733. That being said, I'm not familiar with changes to these stands that would allow for mainline use.

The connection question is interesting, too. (That sounds like Midwestindy territory!) PHX/LAX to LGA/DCA is a throwback to the HP hub days. DL could theoretically connect LAX passengers to LGA through CMH in the same way AA does.
DL doesn't connect passengers through CMH, excluding the rare exception.
Pax number is avg per day
in Q2 AA connected some, but not too much
Here are some routes that WN connected a decent amount of passengers on
XXX-CMH-BOS =10.5 Pax
Don't know OAK numbers but I assume they would be decent
Interesting information, thanks. I remember back when I worked at CMH both DL and US/AA would interline often to UA/AC. I always figured they were Priceline ticket itineraries, lol.
