Delta MCO-GRU ending?

Fri Oct 19, 2018 3:57 am

After doing some “fake” book, I discovered that MCO-GRU on delta wasn’t bookable after March 10th. The route isn’t seasonal, so is it ending? I haven’t heard anything, som just curious. Let me know what you all think.

Looks like it, my friend who works for DL at MCO seems shocked as DL just hired a bunch of Portuguese speaker specifically for the GRU flight.

I was talking with a gate agent in MCO the other day and he also mentioned the rumor is that MCO-GRU is indeed ending.

It also appears that the DTW to GRU flight is ending the same day as well.

Ooh. I know someone who won’t be happy about that. :shock:

I thought DL had some low cost maintenance work that occurred in GRU, where basically DL did a utilization flight overnight to GRU, parked the plane for the day in GRU and did some maintenance work on the frame, and then sent it back north on utilization flying overnight again. I could be mistaken on that.

Were they hired for MCO-GRU, or for BOS-LIS, in the company's mind?

I am upset that Delta is ending the GRU route, However this gives Delta the opportunity to utilize the JV with Delta and GOL. I think Delta agents will be working those flights since it's very common that Delta agents run JV flights. Now, all we need is for AM to move over to AS/4 In Delta will have a pretty good focus city operation going on. Need a few more p2p.

A long haul flight, full of tourist heading to the rat trap could not have been a pot of gold. Let the Brazilian airlines handle that traffic, they have the point of sale advantage anyways.

Remember that Gol is about to start FOR-MCO and BSB-MCO with their new 737 MAX 8.
I wonder when people will understand:
Embraer 190 or simply E190, not ERJ-190. E-Jets are NOT ERJs!
Boeing 747-8, not Boeing 747-800. Same goes for 787.
Airbus A320, not Airbus 320.
Airbii does not exist.

In Delta's earning, Latin America was the only negative performer, so maybe they are trimming some bad routes.

Makes more sense to connect everyone through ATL or with G3. Ironically enough I'm currently interviewing for a Portuguese FA position, but I assume that's more for LIS and JFK/GRU, ATL-GRU/GIG

It's not, it just that DTW-GRU isn't daily and is flown only a few days of the week. He's probably just looking at a date it wasn't operating anyway.

I did do that I checked a weeks worth of dates in April and it was gone but now it's back in there again so I guess we are OK.

If you don't understand that MCO is a "major city" (whatever that is) for DL, you aren't in a position to dismiss that possibility.

As an Orlando local, I would be pissed about this except for the fact that I could never afford to fly it since prices were astronomically high. I can assure you that of all the reasons DL decided to end this, money was not one of them.

Also, the fact that they added MCO-AMS fairly recently does make this easier to swallow.

Not really. MCO used to be a much larger station for Delta. They pretty much had the entire airside to themselves. They allowed the LCC's to take away their market share.

They never had problem with loads, average of 88% for JAN-AUG 2018.

Market is heavily BR point of sale and the lower than expected recovery of Brazilian economy, BRL devaluation and higher fuel costs lead DL to use these aircrafts elsewhere.

Ah, grand.

Here are some revenue numbers for those "not major" cities next to smaller hubs. Obviously, these will have changed somewhat, but only in a direction which supports my point. I welcome more recent data if folks have a public source.

DL 2015 Top US Markets by O&D Revenue
9. MCO - $406.7M
10. SEA - $401.4M
14. CVG - $265.9M
15. TPA - $245.9M
16. FLL - $245.5M
20. RDU - $233.1M
40. AUS - $132.0M

The Latin American carriers are naturally going to have better brand awareness in their respective countries, and AA and UA’s Latin American gateways have better O&D demand in addition to connecting traffic.

I'm hoping DTW-GRU sticks around (although since it's just 3x weekly I also wouldn't be surprised to see it go...), but it makes sense to me that MCO-GRU is ending. By dropping this route, DL gets two 763 frames back to use on stronger transatlantic routes (e.g. the recently announced upgauge of BOS-DUB). MCO-GRU would really need to be a star performer to outweigh the benefit of serving the MCO-Brazil market via GOL and via DL's own connections over nearby ATL.
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

Just because DL makes a lot of revenue in MCO let's not assume automatically that there is profit from it.

The Brazilian announcement said DL was committed to serving Brazil from Atlanta, JFK and Detroit.

If the MCO operation wasn't profitable, it wouldn't be so large, and DL would not be experimenting with routes like MCO-GRU. Is "just because they make a lot of revenue" the new a.net armchair version of "load factor =/= yield"?

Too much capacity BR-US these days ! American started to balance and now Delta. Surprised that the Brazilian airlines remain adding services even with negative finances.

https://www.panrotas.com.br/aviacao/emp ... 59689.html

"A Delta suspenderá seu voo direto entre o Aeroporto Internacional de Orlando e o Aeroporto Internacional de Guarulhos (GRU) a partir de 11 de março de 2019. Ao considerar uma suspensão de rota, a companhia aérea leva em consideração múltiplos fatores como a rentabilidade da rota que, neste caso, não apresenta números positivos, nem perspectivas de melhora no futuro próximo", esclarece, em comunicado oficial.

"A Delta ressalta que está comprometida com o mercado brasileiro, com a sua parceria com a Gol e continuará a atender São Paulo a partir de seus hubs de Atlanta, Detroit e Nova York – JFK, e do Rio de Janeiro para Atlanta. Clientes que forem eventualmente afetados receberão realocação em serviços alternativos Delta.”


"Delta to suspend its direct flight between Orlando and Sao Paulo effective March 11, 2019. To consider a route to be dropped, the airline takes into consideration multiple factors such as route profitability which, in this case, does not present positive numbers, neither perspective of improvement in the near future", clarifies in an official release.

"Delta is committed to the Brazilian Market, with its partner Gol will continue to serve Sao Paulo from its hubs in Atlanta, Detroit and New York-JFK and to Rio de Janeiro from Atlanta. Customers which has been affected will be relocated in another Delta flights."
New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !
