Delta files A220 on SLC-DEN

Mon Feb 25, 2019 3:41 am

Looks like the A220 will fly Delta's night flight from SLC and return back to SLC on the 6am departure staring August 31, 2019.

I guarantee equipment will fluctuate over the next few months. I wouldn't put too much into a August filing with Delta, who reassigns aircraft like water.

Looks like they are also using it from SLC on 3x IAH, 3x SJC & 4x DFW.

Maybe the A220 will eventually do the LGA-DEN flight as a way to rotate them between the east and west coast.

It will get there via DFW & IAH

Just wait until AC starts operating theirs - then we'll really start seeing them in force.

Definitely looking forward to these sweet little birds migrate out west & do some west coast flying.

If it would do this route, imagine the takeoff performance.... It's already amazing on intra-european routes, but this would be airborne in less than 15-20 seconds...

Makes sense as a lot of the initial routes are focused on flying into competitor hubs, particularly replacing those routes that see CR9 / E75 aircraft.

Delta had designated A220 bases for NYC and SLC at least six months ago. What's the surprise?

Maybe, but LGA-DEN doesn't seem thin enough to warrant the A220, but I suppose it's possible. I can see it more on flights to the Midwest to rotate them between LGA and SLC on routings such as LGA-MKE-SLC or LGA-ORD-SLC or LGA-MCI-SLC and then back. These routes are thinner and flown on large RJs for now, though LGA-ORD is the exception and currently going to all 717s this summer.

Its a very smart move for Delta to fly the A220 into cities that are its main competitors hubs. AA and UA do not have a domestic plane that can compete with the A220 on routes between each of the US3's hubs. I think its even fair to say coach class on the DL A220 far better than a UA/AA first class experience on the equipment that they use between their own hubs and DL's hubs.

My wife frequently travels between LGA and DFW. Its a no brainer for her company to book her on the DL A220. In fact, her company, one of the largest consulting firms in the world, bragged to her that they put her on the new DL A220.

Looks like EWR-MSP sees the A220 in July.

What is reassigned water? Sounds gross.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.

I don't blame them.
I flew on the first one in commercial service for Swiss and I loved it. From leg room to windows size it was great.

June, too. In the June schedules, the A220 routes I've found are:
SEA-SJC x2
SLC-SJC x3
SLC-IAH x3
SLC-DFW x5
MSP-IAH x1
MSP-DFW x2
MSP-EWR x1
DTW-DFW x5
DTW-EWR x2
LGA-IAH x5
LGA-DFW x6
LGA-BOS x1

I think DEN will probably see quite a few of the A220s within a year or two. DEN-SEA and DEN-LAX are both ultra-competitive routes and seem ripe for a change from 717 -> A220, and it makes sense for 1-2 of the many daily SLC-DEN flights to be A220 rotations as well.
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

If DL is looking to beat competitors with a better product for a competitive route (DL, AA, South West [also UA EWR-BNA] ) LGA-BNA is one where the A220 could be utilized and for the first time get some mainline flights on the route... BNA is bustling and it's only a matter of time before some of the 75 seaters should be upgraded to provide more capacity on the route.. BNA also being such a tourist destination also maybe DL should run the flights on the most popular days ie LGA-BNA on Friday afternoons and a few return flights Sunday evenings (BNA-LGA)
