. STR is a great example of this DTW-STR is just as sustainable as ATL-STR but being there isn't enough flow to sustain two flights at STR ATL is chosen over DTW even though STR-DTW would work just as well as ATL-STR.

Great comeback, I say this is more about appeasing those who live in Seattle. Delta know it want be able to throw Boeing under the bus and build a Seattle hub. Regardless of how wrong Boeing May have been, those most who love in Seattle will see Boeing through rose colored glasses.Jump to post
The FAA issued a ground stop at the airport this morning. I saw one diversion to Augusta. An Airbus 321 from Orlando. Anyone else seeing any other diversions from ATL?

Wow, did Delta talk them out of the A-380. It look like Korean is lining up aircraft with Delta future or current aircraft use.Jump to post

2017 was a pretty good year. Aeromexico and Jetblue adds were significant. There's a lot more competition to major domestic markets than there was 3 or so years ago. I really wish someone would come in and bust up the Skyteam near-monopoly TATL. For Western Europe you have two frequencies per day o...Jump to post

There is really no reason for them to invest in snow removal equipment
This storm and cold is a one-off that may not happen again for 20 years.
Before KATL has ten E/W runways and I-285 gets pushed so far south that it loops around Macon , will the powers that be decide to bite the bullet? Some musings: 1. I think KMGE is a perfect location for a domestic overflow airport, but it's also busy with DoD traffic and I don't think the politicia...Jump to post
I don't think people understand the massive amount of generators that would be needed to keep the airport running...

Delta can be so silent but yet speak so loudly, with the decisions it made today. Such perfect political and economic timing.Jump to post
As much as people want to believe. Delta is obligated to giving shareholders the highest value. I’m sure the recent Boeing debacle didn’t help either.Jump to post
Atlanta (city and airport) are pathetic when it comes to winter weather. 3 inches of snow. Get real.

Like it or not, Delta is at loggerheads with the Commerce Dept and the Trump Administration. More than likely, Trump will be President for another 7 years. Ordering Airbus, after being involved in the BBD dumping deal could leave Delta out in the cold for quite some time if it needed political/gove...Jump to post
United had a chance to have a southeast hub when Eastern Airlines went out of business in Atlanta. Furthermore, United hubs are already in some of the most populous US centers, and not having a southeast hub is not the problem. Also 40% of all Delta flights don't operate out of Atlanta.Jump to post

I would have had absolute confidence, as I have seen Delta operate many flights throughout the years and making a hard bank to the left or right when severe thunderstorms would be approaching ATL. I'm sure the turns from San Juan to avoid the storms were quite dramatic to say the least.Jump to post
Interesting that IND already gets a deeper commitment than PIT. Show me the money! Also interesting that the GOVERNOR shows up? Come on, this is the best thing he has to do with his time.

Per this article and the recent Hurricane Harvey. Delta is poised to weather the price spike because the refinery is located in PA and will keep Delta's oil spread price low.

DL certainly has done a great job of optimizing its assets; it manages to utilize arguably the oldest fleet in industry to provide a safe network. A downside of this, ofcourse, is not a fleet that is capable of starting long range routes. It might do well to pay attention to this as opposed to star...Jump to post

Furthermore, Orlando and FLL are among the top domestic routes out of Atlanta. I am fully confident that Jetblue can make this work. Also Jet...Jump to post
