Your feelings would be wrong. How so? Delta has 57 A319s, and much of the exNW fleet is nearing the end of their service life. The 50 CS300s, plus a few A321s probably, could easily replace all that lost capacity one for one. The 220s were not acquired to replace the 319s. If we did, finance and ne...

A long, narrow baggage pit isn't the most efficient place to load bags (even more so for outsize and heavy bags) and this would blow through any attempt at a 30 minute or so turn for a lowcost.
