Delta: 100 Days Of 100%

Sat Jun 11, 2016 1:12 am

So far this year, Delta has exceeded 100 days of 100% mainline completion, with more than half of 2016 ahead of us. Amazing operational performance.

At this pace, the airline could well exceed 200 days of zero mainline cancellations in 2016.

Mainline completion is probably better than that of the other 3 majors combined. The focus now is to
bring regional flying up to the same standards.

Keep climbing

Nice streak. I wish them luck, but the odds are stacked against them. They have way too many a/c that eventually one of them will have an issue.

You have good a/c, good crews, and good maintenance, good things should happen.
Is just me, or is flying not as much fun anymore?

It's not just mainline either, some of their regional partners are doing similar numbers of 100% CCF days.

I think a better indication of how well Delta is doing is by the number of daily displaced passengers. They like to leave passengers stranded because of missed connections that are not the passengers fault and with the capacity constraints that are in place today one can be stuck for hours at their hubs trying to get rebooked. Is there a place where this data is collected.

How well Delta is doing is reflected by their performance based on the same metrics used for other carriers.

Delta was spouting the same nonsense last year. For domestic travellers who are making connections most trips involve anywhere from 1-4 legs on Delta Connection carriers. Who have an abysmal record regarding delays and cancellations.

The funniest promotion last year was probably in JNU where a "100% on time" ad was displayed during a month featuring 0% on-time operations and 25% cancellations by Delta Connection. This marketing BS will generate a lot of anger and ridicule from customers again this year.

For people who can fly Delta mainline only, it's great.

If I used Delta for my travel, at least 50% of my flights would be on Delta Connection carriers. Who have a performance record much much worse than Delta's mainline operations. For US domestic travel that relies on regional carriers, marketing like this is meaningless at best, misleading to most, and borderline fraudulent.

If Delta were to advertise performance of all Delta-branded flights -- mainline & all regional carriers added together -- it would be meaningful. But believe me, those are numbers they do not want anyone to see.

Here are some facts: The DCI carriers have been achieving records this year as well. As of late May, the DCI carriers achieved a continuous 8 day streak of no cancellations (not even weather or ATC issues), beating out the previous record by 3 days. The total number of "Brand-Perfect" days (i.e., not a single Mainline or regional cancellation) by the third week of May 2016 was 26, more than double last year's 11 at the same point in time.

You are absolutely correct my friend. I also think that the number of displaced passengers would be more telling as Delta likes to frequently leave passengers that are trying to connect behind as you run through the airport to not only see your planes still at the gate but to be told "Sorry the flight is closed" This data is more about the airline itself rather than something geared towards the customer just because you have 100 days of no cancelations doesn't mean you were not displaced or stranded at one of their hubs for hours and hours.

What I would love to see is the number of days with over 95% D0 this year. The cancel-free days are great, but how about delays? It feels great when you're in your seat and you're pushing back either early or at the scheduled departure time. If you have sufficient block time, you are also very likely to arrive on time if you hit D0.

Out of interest does anyone have similar stats for UA and AA? Without those figures this is totally meanongless. If AA are on 42 days then sure, well done, but if they are on 98 then it is a good headline and nothing else.

And United is the number one D0 YTD so Delta isn't even the number one ontime carrier any more.

The 100 days mentioned in the OP is for so far this year and is for ALL mainline (including international), and is running three months ahead of last year's pace. For all of 2015, the comparable figure was 161 days,

For the airline yes but not for the customer Delta is in the business of customer service while this might contribute to the overall customer experience it doesn't give the full picture and is more Delta pounding it's chest than anything else. Like the one poster said a better ruler to gauge Delta's effectiveness is delay and missed connections where passengers are left behind that is a better way of measuring how efficient a company is that is in the business off customer service. I know for a while 50% of my Delta flights left the gate a hour late or more but I must admit that has improved a great deal. But I still have the bad taste in my mouth of being left behind to fend for myself when the missed connections were not my fault. It will take a long time to have confidence in the Delta product over all as that was the rule rather than the excception for a long time hence why I avoid Atlanta at all costs because it happens there more than anywhere else and CSA is all but non exsistant as they just quote out of the Delta rule book with no desire to really help and I have been left many times doing the 50 yard dash through the airport because I know Delta likes to push and leave without you even if you're 5 minutes late due to a late inbound flight.

Because it's deceptive there is really now diference between a flight being canceled or a six hour delay at least if the flight is canceled I could possibly be rebooked earlier and as I said put the numbers out there of displaced passengers due to Delta issues and then we have so real data to tell us how Delta is doing from a customer stand point this accomplishment is more of an operational milestone rather than an over all positive customer experience but I do understand that this is a contributing factor but it doesn't really paint the full picture.

The facts say they are. The DOT records it, and it's common enough that you might find one just browsing FlightAware or FR24. Airlines are cooking the books by creating extremely long, often overnight "delays" instead of cancelling the flight. Even if all passengers had to be rebooked, they'll fly it a day late just to save their "100%". And this is the result of the lie--fraudulent marketing.

Correct the plane still has to be repositioned to it's intended destination so they just fly it empty with the matching flight number.

RE: Delta: 100 Days Of 100%

Nice streak. I wish them luck, but the odds are stacked against them. They have way too many a/c that eventually one of them will have an issue.

It's 100 days aggregate, not in a row.

Quoting IPFreely (Reply 15):

If Delta were to advertise performance of all Delta-branded flights -- mainline & all regional carriers added together -- it would be meaningful. But believe me, those are numbers they do not want anyone to see.

Except the regionals are improving, substantially. You're obvious dislike for DL is coloring your opinion.

I've seen your claims on at least three different threads now. One of them was deleted. Can you please provide information for us?

Why confuse the issue with facts, as the haters are wont to do?

Just chumming for the DL haters in the crowd 

Oh, no need to chum........they stand out like a sore thumb.

You Don't like Delta, You think they are liars, the cook the books and your experience is dismal EVERYTIME, simply : don't fly them.

I remember a few months ago the Anet truths and one read: "If a thread gets long enough, suddenly it will go into Delta Sucks theme".

If you have proof of the lies, the book cooking, the bad record and stranded Pax by all means enlighten us ! Delta has improved a lot and won me back, and now they are expanding in Mexico so I am very happy, if you think they are way better than UA or AA... please prove it.

Delta Tech is really an impressive operation. The sheer scale they operate at, with a diverse fleet, spanning the continent and globe, getting anywhere close to 100% is awesome.

They do it with new planes, old planes, Boeing, Airbus, C-jets, E-jets, McDs.

And gasp - a substantial 739 fleet (had to throw it in bc that is the plane that gets no respect on these boards).

Well run airline top to bottom.

Who have an abysmal record regarding delays and cancellations.

You have no idea what you are talking. Period. You use an anecdote of "they are HORRRRRRIBLE" yet you have no stats to back it up or even get it in the same ballpark.

There is pretty much nothing horrible about their operation right now, rankings, ratings, inflight, service, etc. You 1 time flew a CRJ flight that was delayed and by golly why didnt Delta offer you free flights.

Having had the experience of booking an evening flight that ended with me walking past passengers waiting to clear security for their morning flights at my destination, you'll have to forgive me for not finding this statistic overwhelmingly impressive.

Until you use some actual numbers in your rants, you are becoming a mindless fool on this forum, just yelling about how bad they are without proving it.

"becoming"? I think he became that a long time ago...

IPFreely, MSPNWA and klm617 are all trolls. They post all the time and never have any facts to back it up. Check out the thread about DTW.

I am beginning to think they are the same person...

Funny on my Detroit post I got pretty much all negative comments about why Detroit can not attract more service to level the playing field more against the mighty Delta including your comments. When can not be positive only when it suits. We must be objective towards all the issues.

The difference is, in that thread you had zero proof of anything you were saying. All you can say is "uh I'm working on it"

thats meaningless. So I'll tell you the same thing I told MSPNWA,

Quoting deltal1011man (Reply 37):

For as common as you say this happens at Delta you have not, one single frickin time, proved it. So stop trolling or put your money where your mouth is.

If everything is like you say it is then you should be able to prove it.

enilria gave evidence of this behavior last summer. It's been proven many times. The government stats show it. Flight tracking websites show it. I know people who have been on those flights. You just don't want to accept the truth.

Go to the BTS Ontime Stats. Use the detailed statistics section. I won't spoon feed you. Look up departure stats for random months at random hubs. You will find them here and there. DL is running a great operation in general, but they are not at 100 days of true cancel-free in 2016. Not even close.

Regarding the extended delays.... If this was such an epidemic, sacrificing A0/A14 for CF, it would show up in the data. CF would be high and A0/A14 would be a lot lower than other airlines. THIS IS NOT THE CASE. Delta leads in both categories, at mainline and at connection.

Are there extended delays in the system? Absolutely. Lately they've been canceling the original flight and adding an extra section (different flight number) to protect the passengers. With load factors in the 90% range, there aren't enough seats to rebook passengers onto other flights (including other airlines) and so the extra sections are necessary. Would you rather be left hanging for DAYS trying to get a rebooked seat on flights that are already full?

And so the entire company is lying to both the public and the feds? But you, you are correct and know their game? PLEASE.

Fact: Delta, by far and away, is running the most reliable operation of the major US major airlines.

Keep climbing

And on top of that the most profitable. Deltas operations are nothing less than impressive.
