Sad, but true. Cost SLC their AeroMexico flights to MEX and HMO. IIRC, both (non-daily) flights arrived late in the evening for a RON, so that they'd have an ideal arrival time in Mexico. AM tried to operate daytime flights on both routes, and both failed, because as such they were less than ideal timed for departures and arrivals in Mexico.
|Quoting WorldTraveler (Reply 38):|
CVG could take a hit but remember DL is flying it w/ a 777 which can't continue to be used for the route given DL's plan to use that plane for Asia. CVGCDG could get a 764 but it would be easier to just downgrade to a 763 like the rest of the CVG int'l flights and support the new SLC-CDG route.

Why is it taking until now, 18 years after Delta bought Western airlines. This should have happen ten years ago.
|Quoting MaverickM11 (Reply 51):|
...and I don't think there were any daytime arrivals at the time that needed customs/FIS.
|Quoting Goldorak (Reply 54):|
in summer, CVG-CDG route is operated by a DL B772 and AF A343. In winter, service is reduced to one DL B763ER
|Quoting Panamair (Reply 56):|
Are you sure? All schedules and CRS show DL 44 CVG-CDG to be a 763ER this winter, even during the peak holiday season...
|Quoting IADLHR (Reply 45):|
Another thing, of which i am absolutely clueless is how much traffic the Mormon Church would generate. I know they do missionary work all over the world so that is a factor too. In addition, this would seem to be purely O&D traffic to add to the strong feed @ SLC DL would get.

|Quoting DAL767400ER (Reply 57):|
Last time I looked delta.com showed the flight as a 777 for the rest of the year, though admittedly, last time I looked was in August, and with DL's tendency to change schedules on a monthly basis, that might have changed
|Quoting WorldTraveler (Reply 59):|
CVGCDG has consistently been one of the DL’s strongest transatlantic routes.
|Quoting Lufthansa (Reply 50):|
I've never spent summer in the rockies...only winter so i've only left SLC when its been snowing... anybody care to comment?
|Quoting Lufthansa (Reply 50):|
Why not simply have the SLC departing aircraft depart at say, 7pm local time, or after dark to avoid the temperature issue?
|Quoting OOer (Reply 63):|
Well.....in the summer, the difference between the hottest time (3-5PM) and 7 PM is usually 2-3 degrees. ALmost nothing. Now if you leave SLC at 8PM or so...do you know what time you arrive in Paris? Around 3-4PM the next day!!!!! While most other US-Europe flight arrive in the morning!!!!!
Here is the solution people!!!!!!
Send an A330-200....
|Quoting Goldorak (Reply 60):|
Agreed but CDG-ATL is even stronger. I've always been amazed how rapidly AF/DL jumped from 1 to 4 daily flights on this route, and they are always full.
