That should not be the case. ATL is way over-inflated because DL routes almost half of its traffic through there. ATL should be closer to around 70 million.
These numbers are from the ATL website:

ATL is way too high compared to any airport! That is a fact!
No, I meant 70 million is what it should be if DL right-sized the operation at ATL. 1,000+ flights on one carrier is way too much. They should cut 200 flights to around 800, bring it closer to what AA has at DFW.
This makes zero sense... DL should just arbitrarily cut flights because you think it's too much and to be more equal with DFW? DL is an extremely well-managed company and also one of the most profitable airlines on earth, I think they've got their business figured out. ATL is as large a hub as it is because it makes money, if it didn't, you'd see DL cut back flights.
