DL needs more own-metal TATL flying to meet the share percentages specified in the pilots' contract - unless DL can get AZ/KL/AF to make unilateral cuts. Riigghht. So, with the obvious city pairs mostly covered it's up to DL to try some of the less obvious. FCO from any DL hub can be filled 4-5 days a week from ~Easter to the end of cruise season, and daily over U.S. K-12 school break. Yields don't need to be great - pilots need to be contented.
