Re: DAL becoming all-E175 for AS in November

AS is bright to squat on the 2 gates as long as it can to try and drive a premium/bidding war on their value. Let's face it, there's no future for DAL in the AS network. If there was everything wouldn't be going to E75.

Re: OAG Changes 8/19/2018:AS Drops FLLSFO;DL Drops JFKBGR,BMIMSP,BNACVG,FNTMSP;Y4 Adds ABQ/CLT/More

Another week, another AS cut from SFO. Wonder which east/west route on the old Virgin network is next. It's coming.

Not posted here but AS is really cranking up TUS service for high season. 2x SEA-TUS on 739; 2x PDX-TUS on E75. 1x SJC-TUS remains same. Half the year it's 1x to SEA and SJC.

DL plan for SEA was never market share - it was for international revenue.

SEA is profitable for DL. And DL has a hear...
