Re: What’s new at SeaTac??

Seems out of sight for a while now - what’s new with? 1. DL? 2. New IAF? 3. New carriers? (AM!) DL is doing good in SEA as far as I can tell, and I feel that there's enough room for the two airlines to coexist nicely, demand-wise. There's increases to mainline and E175, explaining some OAG cuts. Fo...

I don't think what they do is to take passengers from your 2 hubs to make it work on a 3rd... this is a logical add to their network and it's more about the seattle hub than it is about ORD.

The ORD- hkg connection seems just ok though. West bound you'll have 5 hours which is a bit long.
