Re: Delta C Series

What if DL is trying to increase NYC and LAX point of sale / originating traffic? I mean Dallas is a huge market - that doesn't seem like an awful idea. Admittedly they're at a disadvantage since AA has hubs on both ends, but I don't think it's as stupid as the author makes it sound.
