Interesting that we see Delta trimming it's ATL-LHR capacity by one flight.


And I see VS is adding a flight, (JFK-LHR) in April and May, going from 5-6.

VS JFK-LHR APR 5>6 MAY 5>6

Is this an ATL-JFK trade-off for Summer 2018? Look like it could be.

Anybody know what happened to former Delta employee, Mayor, who used to post on this board all the time. It looks like last October is the last he posted on any of the boards. I always enjoyed his perspectives, since he was a long time Delta employee.

Not sure if anybody remembers, but Varig, (from GRU-ATL) was the first airline to fly into Atlanta's 'new" Terminal E, back in 1995. Varig was code-sharing with Delta back then. Of course Delta wanted to be the first into terminal E, but Varig got the honors.
