Now, there are 3 non-stops on the 717 and the timing is not optimal. Makes getting in and out of MDT a bit of a challenge on DL. I'd also like to see more frequencies between DTW/MSP and Florida as opposed to pushing everything through ATL.
Delta HAS thought this over very much. They have made a point of it for several years in their inverster presentations.

What you see is the result.
