Re: Alitalia Will Fly to Washington D.C. From Rome Beginning In Summer 2019

Does anybody know exactly what the restrictions AF/KL put on AZ in TATL flying? I was under the impression that AZ was restricted in how many flights it could add. Further to that question, does anybody know when the JV between DL and AZ runs out? I was under the impression that AZ is not included ...

I believe most of DL's outperformance can be explained by the fact that they enjoy over 70% market share and no alternative airport competition at each of their four biggest hubs. No, that's not it. ATL, DTW and MSP (all going back pre-merger) get the majority of traffic as connections. 'Dominating...
