Re: What's going on at RDU - 2018

Since there doesn't seem to be any official announcement yet from either DL or RDUAA, any chance this might be paired with other new service announcements or up-gauging? Trying to find a list of the top 20 or 25 destinations from RDu to see what DL has left. I remember at one point previous, they s...

Re: Delta Air Lines Network Thread - 2018

Nice to see how DL is cutting underperforming capacity by launching RDU-ORD! Underreported is that while DL remains far behind AS in local SEA market-share, it is gaining ground with higher fares in markets like LAX, ORD, BOS, SNA, SMF, LAS, BOI, BNA, and others. SEA-ANC is horrible though with only...

What if? DFW never built; Joint AUS/SAT airport

What if DFW was never built? I know Dallas has kept their airport DAL but what if Dallas and Fort Worth kept separate airports open like the Austin/San Antonio region currently has AUS/SAT? What would be the impact on the network reach from the split airports over the almost 50 years since the build...
