Delta plans new daily nonstop service between JFK and Rio de Janeiro

Delta plans new daily nonstop service between JFK and Rio de Janeiro Didn't see this coming. This just came in my email, however when I went to click on the link that takes you to the Delta News Hub page, it said I was not authorized to view this page. Anyway, here is the first paragraph on what th...

Delta just confirmed Seattle will have 163 flights this summer, again up from 38 in the summer of 2011. http://news.delta.com/delta-begin-seattle-chicago-o-hare-service-june-2017-0 Three years ago, Delta said they would be offering 150+ flights in 2017.

Re: DL adding SEA-ORD

Well, if my math is correct, (and that can be debatable), with these new flights, Delta will have 163 flights this summer at Seattle. The Delta press releases all last fall, and this winter have been saying Delta will have 160 flights in the summer of 2017 at Seattle. That was before these ORD fligh...

Re: Air Force One gets works done at PBI

This past August 1, 2016, AF1 came into ATL. I saw an old AF1 (707?), back in 1976 with Gerald Ford, but never the 747 version. I wanted to see the 747 version, so I headed out to ATL to see it. Anyway, from what I could tell, there was only one AF1 flying into ATL that day. There was indeed an Air ...

Re: JetBlue May Delay ATL Launch

Despite all the distractions in this post this seems to get to the point. Airlines have to deal with less than optimal gate situations all the time. Deal with it JetBlue! I have flown out of "D', many, many times since the airport opened in 1980. I never felt like a second class citizen flying...

Re: JetBlue May Delay ATL Launch

Re: JetBlue May Delay ATL Launch

It actually makes sense now. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if JetBlue's advanced ticket sales for ATL flights is actually in the toilet. Sure, they say 50K seats have been sold but who's to really know if that's true or not? I bet ticket sales are actually very weak and thus, the story is born of...

Re: JetBlue May Delay ATL Launch

Two thoughts on this. None of us really know both sides of the story, but if the "D" gates are all they can get right now, hey take them just to get started. I have flown out of "D" many times over the years, and I certainly don't look down on having to be on the "D" co...

Re: AA Applies For LAX-PEK

If politics helps at all, (and these days I honestly have no idea), don't forget, AA did not attend the Trump White House meeting. Delta did. Not saying that will or will not have anything to do with how this all plays out, just an observation.

Re: Should Delta make Orlando International their South American hub?

A little correction to what I mentioned earlier. The routes that Delta proposed from MCO in the early 90's were not all to South America. There was one to South America, and two to Central America. From the December 15, 1992 timetable, (which I have a copy of), it shows the following flights startin...

Re: Should Delta make Orlando International their South American hub?

Delta "thought" about using MCO as their South American hub in the early 90's, (when MCO was kind of a real hub back then). In matter of fact, I have a timetable that shows three South American routes that were "going" to be started from MCO, but for whatever reason it never happ...

Re: VS cancels seasonal LHR-ORD service.

Never had a problem with Delta. Have flown them Trans-Atlanta and Trans-Pacific. I am just glad I had a job that allowed me to fly across the oceans. Many people would give anything to be able to have a job that flew them across the oceans. The Delta service I have experienced has been very good. Ma...

Re: VS cancels seasonal LHR-ORD service.

Not poor planning if they realized they can now make more money off a third LAX-LHR flight. Don't forget, VS added this at a time when they did not have the DL/VS partnership. They were basically a stand-alone airline when it was added. Now with the partnership, things for VS have drastically change...

That slot "might" be the slot that is going to be used for the third LAX-LHR flight starting next summer. No idea if it really is...just speculating.

You have no idea if Delta told them to cancel it. Always thinking the negative.

Advertisement Playing on WSB Radio in Atlanta - Don't Fly Qatar Airways

WSB Radio in Atlanta is now running an ad, (brought to you by some Alliance), telling about all the negative things about the country of Qatar, and asking people not to fly this airline.

No idea who is behind this ad, but we all have to assume we know one party that is.
