Re: Will Delta open a CLT crew Base??

Apparently when Phase 1 of Terminal A opened, Delta wanted ALL of it. AA said NO. But...Delta had a good 6-7 gates on A. I think something might be in the works. They have a lot of flying out of RDU as well....mostly RJ, but its sizeable. Delta has quite a few hubs. Any reasonable amount of frequen...

Re: Philadelphia route expansion?

I don't see any WN expansion at PHL. They retreated to Florida and their big connection points (BNA, DAL, DEN, MDW, barely hanging onto ATL). Even in WN's heyday at PHL with 60+ flights a day, they ran no more than a handful of transcons.
