What are the top 10 unserved markets from ATL?

Delta covers so many different destinations from ATL, what are some that are not served that could potentially in the future? (Hoping for PDEW demand)

are there any markets not served from ATL that should have service? Delta serves any market that's viable, and a lot that wouldn't be viable without the vast connecting network. I can't imagine the list is going to be long.

Well, per the OP the list is not going to be long or short, but only 10 cities long. I guarantee you there are 10 cities in the world that are unserved nonstop from ATL.

I think Toledo, OH and Corpus Christi, TX stand out the most to me. Good candidates for a 1-2x daily large RJ to start.

BOI is too far from ATL to be able to be served by regional jets, but the A220 will allow DL to serve BOI nonstop from ATL. BOI is also located in one of the largest markets not currently served nonstop from ATL.

I agree that DL adding ATL-HRL nonstop service could happen since (a) DL already serves HRL nonstop from MSP on a seasonal basis, (b) ATL is the main hub for DL, and (c) DL would be able to connect passengers to destinations in the Southeastern U.S, Mid-Atlantic, Northeastern U.S., and the easternmost parts of the Midwest from HRL through ATL (and vice versa) if DL adds ATL-HRL nonstop service.

I also agree that DL adding ATL-LAN nonstop service could happen since (a) LAN is located in one of the largest markets in the Midwest that doesn't currently have nonstop service to ATL, (b) DL already serves ATL nonstop from some Midwestern markets that are smaller than LAN such as ATW, CID, EVV, GRB, PIA, RST, SBN, and FSD, and (c) LAN already has nonstop service to DTW and MSP on DL.

MSP-HRL was added in-retaliation of Sun Country. It's not a high priority market for Delta. BOI is a good add though.

Would like to see ATL-MAO return at some point, they couldn't serve it with a 737, still have to backtrack if taking GOL.

DL has served ATL-BOI previously, at least seasonally. I caught a ride on one of the flights that had a fuel tech stop in MCI and I was able to hop on as a non-rev.

"Largest" in terms of what? Metro population? Or PDEW from ATL? If the latter I'd venture a guess there's not a single unserved market within 767 range with more than 10 PDEW.

Technically those aren’t new. Each has been served in the past. ATL-ONT was served for many years, even with a 767; BUR only for a short time with a 757.

Delta showed an ATL-FAT temporarily in its schedule in 2007 but the flight was never announced and never started.

Without PDEWs this thread is just babble. You've got to be able to fill a plane with adequate range with decent fares.

I would expect BCN, ZRH, and VIE to come before those. For that matter, add DUB to that list.

Yes, but they were unserved for quite some time and now they will be served again.

Below are the most served (by seats) airports that were served from both DFW and IAH but not ATL in 2018. SYD excluded. Not at all surprising that using this criteria is yielding predominantly Texas destinations.

MFE: McAllen, TX
MAF: Midland, TX
YYC: Calgary, Alberta (beginning March 6 by WS)
DXB: Dubai, UAE (previously served)
CRP: Corpus Christi, TX
AMA: Amarillo, TX
LBB: Lubbock, TX
BRO: Brownsville, TX
PEK: Beijing, China
CLL: College Station, TX

For a less Texas-centric cut, below are the top destinations served from CLT but not ATL:

LYH: Lynchburg, VA
PGV: Pitt-Greenville, NC
HHH: Hilton Head, SC (starting in May)
FLO: Florence, SC
HTS: Huntington, WV
TOL: Toledo, OH
SBY: Salisbury, MD

Last I checked, internationally they were:

BOM
YVR (I think this one may be seasonal)
SGN
DEL
PEK
TLV
HYD
HKG
YYC
CPH
BLR

However, its important to note that the only real significant ones (larger than 40 PDEW) of the above are BOM and YVR. The rest are pretty small.

LAN leaks massively to FNT, GRR, and DTW.
With both FNT and GRR having ATL and really the only thing that ATL offers that can't flow over DTW & MSP is smaller markets in the Southeast or points south, that traffic likely goes to FNT and GRR.

That said, if AA were to start LAN-CLT, I'd imagine DL would start LAN-ATL very shortly thereafter.

CRP had Delta in the late 90's to early 2000's. Why would DL want to return? The only service that would make sense would be service to AUS if AUS becomes a DL focus city.

This calls for DL to purchase a high-density Y only A380 only to serve this route. I still can't believe they don't serve this route. Simply unbelievable...

Even with the distance and mostly leisure traffic, I’m still a bit surprised that no one has even attempted a US-SGN nonstop route recently. I know Vietnam was thinking about it, but the yield must just not be there. Of course, the first nonstop would never be to ATL, but it’s still interesting that SGN is the #3 unserved int’l market from there.

If DL had a focus city at AUS and had a flight from CRP and other smaller market Texas cities to AUS, they could feed flights to ATL, JFK, SLC, LAX, and any other cities DL decides to serve from AUS. THIS way they could compete in Texas without going head to head at DFW, IAH, DAL, or HOU.

I'd like to see a seasonal YHZ-ATL come back. PHL and ORD have recently returned on AA and UA respectively. Access to Delta's network out of ATL would certainly add a lot of options for us YHZ travellers. No idea about the demand though.

Iran? Syria? North Korea? Hanoi and HCM City? Manila? Kirkwall? Charleroi? Islay? Channel Islands? There, that's at least 10 underserved airports from ATL (unless I am wrong on some of them!)

I think the "top" unserved must be the North Korean capital! At least in my definition of "top"! Maybe Kirkwall is the 10th!

if you open your eyes and read what I am asking, maybe you would understand. Not everything needs to “useless” just because you don’t care about it. I was asking for the top 10 destinations that does not have service to Atlanta with the PDEW numbers if possible. None of the answers that I have gotten have been bad ones. There is no need to be sarcastic about the question.

CRP had Delta in the late 90's to early 2000's. Why would DL want to return? The only service that would make sense would be service to AUS if AUS becomes a DL focus city.



Your statement is the one that doesn't make any sense.


If DL had a focus city at AUS and had a flight from CRP and other smaller market Texas cities to AUS, they could feed flights to ATL, JFK, SLC, LAX, and any other cities DL decides to serve from AUS. THIS way they could compete in Texas without going head to head at DFW, IAH, DAL, or HOU.



There's a whole dumpster fire of a thread from last year about how Austin was destined for focus City or hub City status with Delta.

I've just found out that Atlanta is only connected to 16 airports in Europe including seasonal flights. That's far less than I expected.

Here's a top 50 of European airports not connected to Atlanta.

1. London Gatwick
2. Moscow Sheremetyevo
3. Paris Orly
4. Copenhagen
5. Moscow Domodedovo
6. Palma de Mallorca
7. Lisbon
8. Oslo Gardermoen
9. London Stansted
10. Vienna
11. Stockholm Arlanda
12. Athens
13. Berlin Tegel
14. Moscow Vnukovo
15. Helsinki
16. Malaga
17. St. Petersburg
18. Warsaw
19. Geneva
20. Hamburg
21. Prague
22. London Luton
23. Budapest
24. Edinburgh
25. Alicante
26. Nice
27. Bucharest
28. Cologne-Bonn
29. Milan Bergamo
30. Berlin Schönefeld
31. Kyiv
32. Birmingham
33. Porto
34. Lyon
35. Catania
36. Naples
37. Reykjavik Keflavik
38. Glasgow
39. Toulouse
40. Marseille
41. Milan Linate
42. Faro
43. Bristol
44. Basel Mulhouse Freiburg
45. Bologna
46. Ibiza
47. Heraklion
48. Charleroi
49. Valencia
50. Riga

Some of these airports wouldn't make much sense or would be plain impossible, but still there are a lot that you would expect to have service to Atlanta but don't. Actually I'm surprised to see Moscow is totally unconnected to Atlanta. With both Delta and Aeroflot being in SkyTeam you'd expect their largest hubs to be connected, but nothing. Not a single flight from Atlanta to anywhere in Russia.
