Re: Why is DL investing money in 20+ year old A320’s

Properly cared-for DC3s are still flying, so what is your point? Op clearly stated their point. If you missed it that's on you. Do you really expect the airlines to spend billions on shiny aluminum tubes on your $99 round trip fare? Not everyone fly's Allegiant, Spirit or Frontier. Some of my AA an...

Re: DAB in talks with Sunwing for YYZ-DAB Flights

DAB has always been a very 'interesting' leisure destination. It seems to be one of the less-popular beaches in Florida, particularly on the Atlantic. With greater Melbourne and Vero Beach a couple of hours away, I believe people might rather go down to those beaches instead.

EWR (NYC): B6, AA, DL
IAD (WAS): AA
IAH/HOU: WN
ORD (CHI): AA, WN
DEN: F9, WN
LAX: AS, AA, DL, WN
