Re: The rest of Ohio - 2018

The best shot at a LHR flight is Worldpay and P&G being willing to provide seat guarantees. Problem is that the PHL slot is likely to shift to BOS once DL has to give that slot back to AA, and the other slot that DL has doesn't include M/F. I don't think DL would need to do a daily flight for C...
