No information on whether this is year round, but an indication that VS/DL are aiming to develop the market between their secondary TATL hubs.
Fantastic news, and great to see Delta back at MAN. I agree a daily 757 is better than a three times weekly A330.
Will this be a seasonal route?
Official announcement is tomorrow, however with the exception of AMS,CDG and LHR, the other routes are all seasonal, the date of 21/5/2020 suggests seasonal as that's when they started their seasonal routes this year 23/5/2019. (DUB/EDI/LIS), i think this is a much better aircraft for the route, the 330 just doesn't work for VS on this one. Daily will also be slightly more popular for business folks.
I will be covering the new Delta and Virgin Atlantic flights announced tomorrow on my twitter, including timings and aircraft types
I think the DL Boston to Manchester/Gatwick routes will be seasonal, but may change based on performance. VS Gatwick-JFK and DL 3rd daily JFK-Heathrow likely to be year round but more will be revealed tomorrow from Delta's newsroom
