At this point I wonder if an airline like DL, who has designated BNA as a focus city and doesn’t have the MAX baggage, could get creative and take advantage with their direct flights/operations here....they certainly don’t appear to be in any hurry to add destinations
Has Delta added any routes or upgauged any routes since naming Nashville a focus city?
No, and other than TATL and maybe AUS, I don’t think they will. Once this MAX issue gets resolved, WN will resume growing BNA and it will be hard for DL to launch p2p routes.
As DL has been adding A220's to compete with UA and AA on routes to/from a fortress hub I could see DL trying BNA-EWR-BNA on an A220. This could be a good opening as NW pulls out of the market and suck some of that capacity along with giving UA a good run for their money.
What are other people's thoughts on this?
