Delta's Presence At PDX

Tue Aug 24, 1999 5:40 am

Earlier today, somebody told me something about DL flying nonstops from Portland to Japan. Does DL fly any widebodies into or out of PDX? I can't seem to recall seeing any widebodies there. Anybody know?

Delta flies MD-11s out of PDX.

Until recently, Delta operated three daily nonstops to Japan-one to Tokyo, one to Fukuoka, and one to Nagoya. Recently, they suspended services to Fukuoka, saying the route was unprofitable. They are hoping to get clearance into Osaka. All flights operated by MD-11s.

Also, the MD-11s would continue onto Atlanta or CVG. Delta also operates an extensive domestic widebody network. Other widebodies out of PDX include L-1011s and 767s to ATL, and Salt Lake City.

Delta's only other Pacific services were Tokyo- LAX and ATL.

Delta hopes to feed more traffic into PDX to make it a more profitable western hub.

Yes Hi.... Delta Airlines does fly MD-11 airliners from ATL-PDX-Japan. Also I think they might fly a 767 or two from PDX to Japan.

The only aircraft DL uses on Pacific routes is the MD-11.
