I wonder if Delta purposely waits for AA and UA to publish their responses first, and then quickly skims over them and then tries to add in some quick responses to arguments made against their proposed routes. That would be pretty sneaky, but I doubt that's the case.
They are notorious for this, and they're so consistently the last to file that I'm certain what you've alluded to at the end there is the case.
I wouldn't be surprised as well. Practical move, as far as these things are concerned though I doubt it moves the needle too much.
Honestly, the hyperbole is ridiculous. First, as a corporate lawyer, these documents simply cannot be adjusted at their whims in the last hour. There are multiple layers of approval. Stop acting like DL is some nefarious corporation trying to be sneaky. Second, if anyone actually bothered to look, you will notice DL was actually filed *before* AA (https://www.regulations.gov/docketBrows ... -2019-0014). If you sort correctly you will notice DL was before AA. In fact, I was checking while filing and can confirm DL was before AA.
