Rumor: New DL flights from MCO

Sat Apr 21, 2018 4:01 am

I have been told from a reliable source of mine that some new DL flights are being considered from MCO including potentially adding CDG and LON. (wasn't told what airport was being considered)

DL is doing some interesting things with MCO international service. GRU/AMS, potentially CDG. LON is already covered by Virgin with the JV. I believe GOL is adding some service direct from Brazil also.

I was surprised when I heard about LON being considered. Maybe DL will take over one of the VS flights but DL doesn't currently fly to LGW so I really don't know what the plan is there. CDG is no surprise to me as I was told when AMS was added that DL was deciding between AMS and CDG and ultimately choose AMS.

Well Virgin serves our London market well. However, with the increase in business between the O and London, LHR is becoming an increasingly requested airport.

I think DL is doing great with the use of partners at MCO. Unfortunately I don’t think this warrants an Air France 777 or 789, so a Delta 76W would suffice and be the perfect route in the future on the 339 or 332. If I had to make a best guess, CDG is the next international route for Delta at MCO.

Domestically, there’s so much they can do. I think MSY, AUS, and RIC have great CRJ potential. If they make some key markets like BDL, MCI, CMH, GRR, and MKE year round then there could be feed for flights like AM to MEX or DL to GRU. With GOL’s new flights, there could be feed opportunity from ATL, DTW, NYC, MSP, SLC, LAX, and SEA to Fortaleza and Brasilia.

Those first two already have a plethora of Orlando service on at least three different airlines.... they're more interested in trying to attract a SkyTeam CDG nonstop of their own, than worrying about DL offering/feeding MCO.

You have to be joking with that last sentence. Gol’s MCO flights are to serve the local market. That’s it. There’s no market for FORSLC or the like.

If they are looking at London it'll be Heathrow. Orlando would have no problem sustaining LHR and LGW. It's a pity they won't look at other airports as Florida is always popular from the UK regions.

You’d think that with 3 separate airlines flying from Orlando to London, at least one of them would serve Heathrow.

Interesting.
Perhaps as the implementation of the JV with KE launches, ICN may not seem too far fetched with KE or DL metal. An ICN-MCO-GRU flight would have hubs supporting it at both ends with GOL in GRU and may be a good fit for a 787. Would the 330NEO have the range for MCO/ICN? GOL could also provide feed in MCO from Brasilia and Fortaleza.

VS could easily ground handle a DL flight at Gatwick, just as DL ground handles VS at multiple locations in the States.

I think he may have been referring to connecting feed from those cities over MCO and on to Brazil.

That's what he's saying - that there is no FORSLC market means that there are no passengers to feed from SLC to FOR over MCO. He's just saying GOL isn't interested in feed over MCO because the secondary Brazil markets are very MIA and MCO focused.

Im sure they could swing it daily from December to June on the CR7/9, the only problem CLE would have is the yields that DL probably couldn’t make up for.

CLE-MCO/SFB is so crowded with F9/G4/NK/WN/UA/DL all operating it with various frequencies. I don't see DL being able to make money on the route if they went daily.

Will DL ever add MCO-DAY nonstop service? WN had pulled out of DAY, and AA and UA will not add nonstop service to MCO from DAY. AS, B6, F9, 3M, NK, SY, and VX all serve MCO, but none of these carriers do serve DAY. While G4 does serve SFB nonstop from DAY on a less-than-daily basis, MCO no longer has nonstop service to DAY after WN pulled out of DAY.

DL is crazy not to start FLL to LON like right away. I believe its only Norwegian on those city pairs that's flying nonstop. AA won't do it, MIA is right down I-95 and UA really doesn't have much of a Florida presence. B6 has proven that FLL is a very, very large market that can handle both AA at MIA and B6 at FLL. If B6 is really only planning on buying the A321LR, which doenst have the range to fly FLL-LON, then what is DL waiting for? Sorry if this hijacks the thread, didn't think it was worthy of its own.

An interesting flight that no one has mentioned is DL's flight MIA - MCO and reverse that connects up with their MCO/GRU service. This flight has been operating for at least a couple of years so it must be successful even though DL's MCO-GRU flights overfly MIA both ways.

MCO-MIA is there to facilitate the MCO-GRU flight and they even share the same flight number DL196/197. The real oddball that I’ve never understood why it existed is MCO-IND which other than MIA is the only non-hub/focus city that DL serves domestically daily nonstop from MCO. It originally stated as a Saturday only RJ service then quietly expanded to daily and then quietly turned into daily mainline 717 service. I’d like to see some more domestic routes from MCO to help facilitate our INTL flights and especially if LON and/or CDG are added. This information ultimately came from someone very high up (can’t disclose who) and was very surprised to see DL looking at MCO-LON (again no specific airport was mentioned)

The primary effect of Delta on DAY-MCO would be fare arbitrage against DL's own CVG-MCO flights.

I'm still on the DL MCO-EZE train. There is a local market, plus DL can market one of their LAX-MCO flights as a 1 stop LAX-EZE to compete with AA's new NS to EZE. I'm sure the O&D on ATL-EZE is quite a small percentage of those traveling, and maybe shifting 3x/weekly flights to MCO could work. Maybe even a code share on AR like they have on the JFK flight could work.

RDU is officially considered a "focus city" by DL. Many non-hub/focus city flights from RDU that I have connected to before from MCO.

DL's ATL-EZE-ATL is doing extremely well, just being upgauged year-round to the A333. with connections to all over the US that MCO does not support, and even to Asia, particularly Tokyo. No way DL will reduce flying to Argentina from ATL.

Now, an MCO-EZE code shared with AR would certainly be something that would work. Here's some thoughts on Delta ops in Argentina by DL's Latin America & Caribbean division Managing Director: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ja1lk3elWU4

DL has a large FF base in IND, plus DL captures something like 120 PDEW to MCO so a daily ,nonstop flight isn't too surprising. They recently upguaged the flight to a B717 so I suspect the route is doing well.

Just before the merger and even into it, IND was a significant focus city for NW still has many of the routes it had then.

Do you know the specific timing of the route cuts by NW/DL out of IND? Was it late NW (up to Oct. 2008) or early DL?

The demise of ATA at Indianapolis allowed Northwest Airlines to experiment with making it a focus city. The airline started flights from Indianapolis to 22 new markets in hopes of winning over the Indianapolis travelers and major businesses like the Eli Lily Corporation. However, the airline struggled to turn a profit on most routes at IND, and when the carrier merged into Delta Air Lines, it cut a majority of the routes. Of the routes that were operated by Northwest, only Boston, Ft. Myers, Orlando and Raleigh remain on Delta’s route map. Remain, maybe as of this article being penned 8/2016.

https://airlinegeeks.com/2016/08/06/aba ... -part-two/

Here are some remarks from knope2001 in 2005:

13 years ago

It obviously way to early to know specifically what Northwest is going to do with their network under chapter 11, but I don't think it's a stretch to think that some of their non-hub routes *may* be in jeopardy. Northwest's domestic strength is in the hubs, and some of the point-to-point flying they've added is, well, somewhat suspect.

As for the focus cities of IND and MKE, we can see what markets Northwest has pulled from sale so far to get some ideas. Indy has definitely seen less pullbacks than Milwaukee.

IND
Austin gone as of 10/30
Seasonal daily PHX will not resume
Fort Myers was 2x/day last winter, 1x this winter
Sarasota Saturday-only RJ will not resume
Denver, planned for year-round nonstop, dropped from 10/29 to 2/16.
The only other notable reduction at Indy amid the growth is the loss of St Louis nonstops.

I doubt MCO-FCO would happen anytime soon, at least not on Delta. Not sure what the O&D/PDEW market is, but Delta already serves FCO to/from ATL and JFK.
Norwegian could possibly start the route, though, or alternatively, from Milan (MXP) instead...

Delta has never even flown to MFW (Magaruque, Mozambique) let alone MFW-LON. Not sure where you're getting that info or that they dropped the route there and maintained slots to LHR from it.

Well Virgin serves our London market well. However, with the increase in business between the O and London, LHR is becoming an increasingly requested airport.

I think DL is doing great with the use of partners at MCO. Unfortunately I don’t think this warrants an Air France 777 or 789, so a Delta 76W would suffice and be the perfect route in the future on the 339 or 332. If I had to make a best guess, CDG is the next international route for Delta at MCO.

Domestically, there’s so much they can do. I think MSY, AUS, and RIC have great CRJ potential. If they make some key markets like BDL, MCI, CMH, GRR, and MKE year round then there could be feed for flights like AM to MEX or DL to GRU. With GOL’s new flights, there could be feed opportunity from ATL, DTW, NYC, MSP, SLC, LAX, and SEA to Fortaleza and Brasilia.


You have to be joking with that last sentence. Gol’s MCO flights are to serve the local market. That’s it. There’s no market for FORSLC or the like.

Delta has never even flown to MFW (Magaruque, Mozambique) let alone MFW-LON. Not sure where you're getting that info or that they dropped the route there and maintained slots to LHR from it.

Get a grip dude.

MFW was an unofficial designator for South Florida Metro, originating from the amalgamation of Miami + Ft. Lauderdale + (West) Palm Beach; but no longer used by the IATA.

Even after Mozambique got the designation, most software would differentiate the two based on the hemisphere of origin. Even GCM did so until recently.

That, and context. :roll:

I think LHR and CDG will be great new additions. Possibly, FCO too? And of course, a Delta pilot base (if that’s what they want)

I doubt MCO-FCO would happen anytime soon, at least not on Delta. Not sure what the O&D/PDEW market is, but Delta already serves FCO to/from ATL and JFK.
Norwegian could possibly start the route, though, or alternatively, from Milan (MXP) instead...


DL also has a seasonal DTW-FCO flight from April - October.

Come back to reality.

You throw out some “unofficial designator” (can’t find anything in Google backing that one up) and we’re supposed to know what you meant? Mistakes get posted on here all the time. :roll:

With about 5seconds of effort:

Example 1, from the last full year of official use by the IATA before becoming a split designator:

Example 2, a recent archive of the GCM's programing for MFW in this hemisphere:

EVERYONE is looking the wrong way...... B6 will begin flying south from MCO..... most of the shallow central America ops from ATL can go to MCO, BOG,PTY,MGA,SJO,UIO,TGU or will they wait until they SEE the competition stirs the market up!

But they're not about to leave ATL.

Lots of partner services on WS, AM, Gol, Virgin Atlantic, etc., a bunch of point-to-point flights, high frequencies to hubs, and Saturday services to just about every major market in the eastern U.S.

What about DFW, AUS, ORD, or BWI from MCO on Saturdays only? Or would these routes be too competitive and low yielding for consideration?

Yeah, no. Like I said earlier - come back to reality.

You post archived links that you personally updated today (link 3 was mysteriously update 4/23.....hmmmmm :scratchchin: ) and others from over a DECADE ago, and you’re right - no, I didn’t spend more than 5-minutes going through the first couple pages after searching “airport code MFW.” But you can call me a liar if that helps you sleep better.

We can keep going round and round here, and you can keep defending your use of a term that clearly hasn’t been used in over a decade and isn’t relative anymore. But I’ll keep posting like we’re living in 2018.

I started reading these message boards in 03/04, I live in FL, i have been working in aviation since 04 when i got my first aviation job as a line guy at an FBO, been using sabre since 07 to buy tickets and now am a travel agent. I can honestly say that I have newer seen or heard of MFW used for SE FL region airports.

Most of these flights as you noted are either partner operated or Saturday only. Daily from MCO we have all the hubs, RDU, IND, MIA, AMS, and GRU. While we are bigger than most other stations that aren’t hub, if DL is adding INTL flight from MCO, i’d like to see some of those Saturday only flights become daily.

Yields are garbage compared to market size on MCO-ORD, and if DL added ORD-MCO on a CRJ-900 even on a Saturday, I feel like UA or AA would in turn add Saturday DTW-MCO on the E170/175 in response. BWI yields are garbage with WN, NK and B6 fighting on the route. I think DL is fine with using DCA for this flight, however if they can get the slots, I don't see why not. AUS could easily be daily on a CRJ-900 or so, I think MSY could too. DFW is an AA mega hub so that may interfere with it. CMH would've been a good candidate for daily service, but almost every LCC/ULCC flies here from CMH so that makes it difficult.

I think, and I know I've said it before, that RIC, MSY, AUS, and MSN could be good adds for CRJ service to MCO.

I know it’s a bit of a stretch, but maybe MCO-Tokyo? Both cities have evolving businesses, and it would be the first Asia-Florida nonstop.
