Hahahaha it’s funny how GRR gets PHX when DTW just recently had an A321 on it.

Like I said, expect more Crj 200 cuts in the future. With all the regional cuts from DTW, the focus is becoming more on an O/D hub. Expect APN, CIU, IMT, ESC etc... to be cut as well in the near future...

Re: SLC Terminal Construction Updates

So, where will each airline go? I’m assuming the larger concourse will house most/all the airlines and the smaller for the regionals/more Delta?

I know that I can’t be the first one to think this but...
The airport looks very similar to DTW’s McNamera concourse!

Re: Detroit Air Service Discussion Part 5

I think it will. I plan on flying WOW to Amsterdam or preferably Düsseldorf next year. Delta's flights to Europe really aren't affortable.

Re: Detroit Air Service Discussion Part 5

Yeah I was wondering why they wouldn't make the flight daily after switching to the 757. In my opinion, 2018 doesn't seem so bad to me. I don't know if Spirit will add anything for the summer though, but they will add something eventually. So to review, we have: WOW air on A321 DTW-KEF x4 weekly, st...

Re: OAG Changes 10/1/2017: UA Drops MSP-LAX

Guys!!! Those flights come back!!!! They are reduced every year during the off-season. For DTW: Capacity increased from x3 A332 X1 A333 to x3 A333 X1 A332. The third flight from MSP to AMS comes back in spring .(Sometime in April normally.)

Re: OAG Changes 10/1/2017: UA Drops MSP-LAX

Nope. The fourth flight comes back effective March 25th, 2018, as usual. (Excluding Fridays like this year.) In fact, for 2018 there is an increase of over 10% in seats on the route. I think the Friday cut is the 332 that goes to GRU, I'd rather see GRU happen than the 4th AMS flight on a Friday. I...

As I suspected the additional DTW-CDG would cause a reduction in DTW-AMS

Re: Why no DTW-HNL?

I know a lot of people in my town (I live in metro Detroit) that have flown to Honolulu. They all pretty much have a layover in LAX. My theory is that it would be profitable and could be operated on a seasonal basis, but Delta wants to use their aircraft elsewhere. Why? I'm not so sure. Even if a DT...

Re: Detroit Air Service Discussion Part 5

Klm does not serve SLC and MSP daily. Where is the evidence? MSP sees x4 weekly, and 3 weekly in the winter I believe at MSP. Also SLC is only served seasonally by KLM; and service is x3 times weekly. I don't think 2017 was an awful year for DTW either... the worst was Virgin Atlantic leaving.

Re: Why does RJ not fly nonstop year round to DTW?

I've wondered this too. RJ should order a few more 787's as well. They only have what 7-8? This could be a factor. Also in the off-season months only like 20-30% of passengers on AMM-YUL-DTW go on to Detroit. In the summer months however the flights are packed.
