Why was DL late to the game in establishing SkyTeam in Asia and therefore stuck with leftover, third rate partners?

Re: Delta to cut Seattle-Hong Kong, announces Seattle-Osaka

SEA-HKG is one of those routes that provokes a lot of a.net sentiment but it's not a business opportunity for Delta Air Lines. Flying to places like Minot or Winnipeg, or Charleston, these are actual business opportunities where actual cold, hard cash is made. HKG, I firmly believe, was not in the ...

Re: Delta to cut Seattle-Hong Kong, announces Seattle-Osaka

Agree DL should have kept the 788 order. This would have provided more route flexibility and replacements for 763’s. DL is too weak in TPAC to have a two hub set up (LAX and SEA) like on the east coast (ATL and JFK). I think SEA will become a focus city, similar to BOS, providing feed to KE and LAX ...

Re: Delta to cut Seattle-Hong Kong, announces Seattle-Osakab

Why does Delta appear to be struggling so much to build TPAC market share? One of the advantages of the DL/NW merger was to gain NW’s TPAC routes and presence. Delta seems to be dismantling and squandering the opportunity. BKK is out. JFK-Asia is out. US-HKG is out. (NRT makes sense.) Was the profit...
