Re: Detroit Air Service Discussion 2017

BTW with the JV, I bet a 2nd ICN flight will be added regardless if it’s DL or KE, probably DL because there’s more 350s that will need to be used. I just think they’ll do it to strengthen the TPAC network, shifting the current ICN flight to an 11am departure than adding the new one to a 4:30pm depa...
