ATL-EDI Now Bookable On Delta.com!

Tue Dec 18, 2007 7:05 pm

Now bookable through Delta website, non-stop EDI-ATL, 757.

Delta 196 ATL-EDI 6.25pm - 7.35am
Delta 197 EDI-ATL 10.50am - 2.40pm

Not sure what date flights start, but they are available for June and July.

Looks like the route will return afterall, as well as EDI-JFK next summer! What a day for EDI, Delta returning, and Ryanair announcing further expansion!

Flights currently on sale from 1 June through to 30 September. Aircraft operates ATL-EDI-JFK and JFK-EDI-ATL. The JFK schedule suggests that ATL needs to continue into October though.

That sounds like good news for EDI.

Good that Delta are joining CO in serving some of the smaller airports

I suspect the end date will have as much to do with the operational limitations of the 752 as headwinds westbound get stronger as it will with passenger demand...

Would rather see JFK-GLA and then ATL-EDI, but that's just me. They aren't that far apart anyway.
The proper term is "on final" not "on finals" bud...

I thought ATL was being dropped in favour of JFK?

ATL-EDI on a B752, how does that compare with flight times and distance covered compared to some CO routes? It seems quite far to me.

29 miles longer than CO's longest (EWR-TXL).

thats what Delta announced in the summer! Looks like they have changed their minds and decided to run both instead!

The longest 75 route belongs to NW, not CO. CO does'nt even have the second longest 75 route.

NW DTW-FRA 3616nm
DL CVG-AMS 3599nm
CO EWR-TXL 3458nm

DL's new ATL-EDI will be 3484nm.

Regards

Mike

This route is gone and apparently not returning (on the 75A, that is), perhaps due to operational limitations.
