Re: Will DL return to Hong Kong anytime soon?

Despite a former CEO who called Delta a “glow bull ayer line” it is not. Basically Delta is a US airline with shuttle service to international partners’ hubs outside the US. Delta’s international network strategy is: A) fly DL hub or key US city to international partner hub B) in select instances wh...
