Delta Upgrades Aircraft

Sun Sep 07, 2003 1:32 am

Hey folks, was looking for flights to FLL from STL on Delta.com and ran across this flight.

Delta Airlines Flight 2184
Depart STL 11:30am
Arrive CVG 1:46pm
Aircraft: Boeing 737-200.

Good news for STL!! Demand must be high enuff to add another flight AND add a bigger plane to it as well. since no other airline flies that route except AA and that will be downgraded effective NOV 1. Well still looking around the delta.com website for any news involving STL and just saw this. Have a great day, I know I am!!

Alex.

It's good to see that DL mainline will finally be serving more cities from CVG. DL has been decreasing mainline since 1997. In 1997 DL mainline at CVG had 231 daily flights, now it's down to 158.

Looks like effective Nov. 1 DL goes from 9 flights / day (2 on CRJ 70 seaters) offered by DL Connection to a total of 7 flights - two operated by DL on 737-200 the other two on Comair with 3 CRJ and 2 CRJ 70 seaters.

Nice change, adding the larger aircraft - but still about the same total number of seats to CVG as the 737-200 mainline configuration holds about 100 seats as DL equips that aircraft.

Doesn't look like any change in the STL-ATL offerings on DL (somewhat surprising to me if DL is trying to build in STL).
