More Americans Are Moving West and South

True, but those Americans that move south are typically in the lower middle class or are retired looking for the sun. Those who move south are being replaced with transplants from all over the world with lots of money. BOS may be slow-growing population-wise compared to the southern cities but the actual growth in BOS is the envy of most states and countries of the world. These new transplants have good-paying jobs, not a drain to the system and have lots of money, They travel and spend on premium seats. It's the quality and not the quantity. I think BOS is in a very good space for continued future growth. I am glad DELTA is beating AA to the punch. AA is horrid and DELTA Is a much more premium airline IMO.
Not sure where you’re making that up. There is a significant wealth flight from the Northeast to the South (well, mainly Florida) going on right now. It’s not retirees people and lower middle class, it’s the uber rich. That said, I don’t think it’s hurting Boston like it’s hurting New York and Connecticut,
