Alright, to sume it up, before the merger CO only flew IAH-LGW, then they inherited from PE flights from EWR to BRU and LGW, and everything else happened afterwards. Thanks to all.

I’m thinking YYC-DTW, plenty of connecting opportunities to places throughout the Midwest, Great Lakes and Greater Appalachia. I can see them doing what AM does with ATL, maybe 6 or so stations like YVR, YEG, YYC, YWG, YHZ, and YUL. Would Delta want to poach MSP connections though in favor of DTW? ...Jump to post

I wonder if any of those flights could be shifted towards east coast hubs. Not a single AA east coast hub (JFK, PHL, CLT, MIA) has service to Asia.

Also Deltas cancelation free streak is really more of a PR stunt, then a well run operation.

DCA so premium heavy with the E75. Amazing it is clearly a hub on par with PHX by departure count. DCA has a lot of E75s but that doesn't make it premium heavy. There are also 72 flights aboard E145/CR2. Delta at LGA has just 20 single-class flights in its total count of 275, and only 14 of 232 at ...Jump to post

Can this aircraft compete with MOM from Boeing ? That depends on how you mean by compete . The A330neos competed with the 787 by being cheaper.

The problem with that is the bigger the plane, the lower the CASM. Running 319s against Delta 757s is not a winning game, nor is CR2s vs. CR9s.

UA isn’t going to put a 73G or 319 on a route that doesn’t have the demand to justify it.

The most striking thing about Delta’s current schedule is how much regional jet flying happens at DTW, and how much of it is on 50-seaters. It’s less pronounced than four years ago, but it’s still a huge portion. Yeah, DTW is still more regional-heavy than other DL hubs (likely in large part due to...Jump to post

Also, I can't see without the help of QF, how AA could really expand in NZ or Australia. Really? AA is the largest carrier in the world.

Has anybody run the fleet math to support the idea that switches to mainline are a broad, systemic thing? In 2017, mainline ASMs grew 0.9%, and total mainline plus regional grew 1.1% - so regional grew faster than mainline. Aren't they even pulling E-140s out of retirement?Jump to post
