This was a dumb route DL should never have launched. It was doomed to fail.
Maybe if they would have used something other than a flying tuna can it would have had a chance. I was on a DL CR2 once (PHL-DTW), and that one time will be my last if I can help it...
I really don't know what DL is thinking as of late. They say, "oh, PIT-BOS is doing well for us," and then they turn around and do this (according to numerous other posts). On my way to SEA from PHL via DTW, our leg to DTW was supposed to be on an A319! They replaced that with a CRJ, which as you would know, resulted in an overbooking of the flight. I know the flight was overbooked because I got a notice saying that due to an equipment swap, the flight was overbooked and tried to put my wife and me on a different flight. I had an opportunity to fill out a survey regarding that swap, and I never got around to filling it out. I would have said, "HEY! The next time you swap out aircraft, make sure you replace it with enough seats!!!"
To be quite frank, coming back to PIT-BOS, I wasn't exactly sure of why it was started either. It's not a big enough market to support 3 airlines. Again, maybe if DL thought they had a shot at something on the route, they would've used bigger equipment (CR7 or E70/75 equipment) -- US has the RJ show on that route and B6 has a couple of E90s daily. I guess considering that, I think you'd have a better shot at seeing an earthquake in Virginia than you would turning a profit at B6 yields with a CR2...
Am I wrong with this assumption here?
