Re: DL Capacity on JFK-DTW: Why so low?

FWIW, can you imagine how fun MSP-JFK would be on a CRJ, but that was back in the hey-day of really long 50-seat RJ routes. Summer 2008 was: DTW: 3x (D9S, D9S, D9S) MSP: 3x (320, 320, 319) Interesting, and thanks so much for posting. I am surprised there was that much capacity. I remember in the la...
