Most of the Dallas-area customers will not fly on Delta's DFW-CVG nonstop flights to make connections to East Coast destinations since American has nonstops out of DFW to all of the East Coast destinations that have nonstop service out of CVG on Delta, since Southwest has nonstop service from DAL to most of the East Coast destinations that are served nonstop out of CVG, since Delta already has 7 daily nonstop flights between DFW and LGA, and since Dallas-area customers travelling to the East Coast can make connections through Delta's main ATL hub. Most of the customers travelling on the Delta DFW-CVG nonstop flights are travelling solely between DFW and CVG.
Southwest would be able to successfully compete against Delta on CVG-DAL nonstop service if Southwest adds CVG-DAL nonstop service since Southwest already competes against Delta on nonstop service from DAL to Delta's ATL, DTW, LAX, LGA, and SLC hubs, since the demand for Dallas to Cincinnati flights has significantly increased since the repeal of the Wright Amendment, and since Southwest can provide easier access to SAT, the largest U.S. city without nonstop service to CVG, if Southwest adds CVG-DAL nonstop service.
Not sure what that has to do with my post, but Ok.
O/D demand seems to be pretty strong, since DL is adding a 3rd CVG-DFW flight next summer. DL still has a core of highly loyal FFs at DFW who probably do make some connections via CVG.
Also, a few more periods might help with readability.
