Re: Detroit air service discussion - 2018

There's a lot of notable upgrades that I want to point out for May 2018, DL specific; -GSP will get an A319 on the 9pm flight, the other 2 flights will be CRJ's but there's still a net increase in seats going to GSP. It's also a growing market, so it makes sense for there to be a mainline option on ...

Re: DL 767-400's to receive Delta One Suites 2019

It makes me wonder if they'll re-deploy the 764 on MCO-GRU. Most of what MCO-Brazil is though, is back filling as opposed to front. Maybe DL will redeploy the 764 on premium heavy routes for D1.
