But a logical one. He's right that DL does funnel a lot of passengers to Asia via DTW.

Re: Delta Network Thread - 2019

DTW sees no mainline to JFK as of now, its enabling DL to raise yields on RJ aircraft, and a QSI highly favors a B6 add. DL2124 (717) departed JFK at 19:36 and is estimated to arrive DTW at 21:30. Mainline was recently reinstated and I believe they will change the 717 to an A220 in the fall. Only u...
