It's about time SAN got its JFK flights back. Now, what are the odds one of them turns out to be a red-eye? That would really be something. The CO flight to EWR is the only thing going (excepting B6, of course), and they know it---fares are always in the stratosphere for that flight.</font>
One of the two SAN-JFK flights is a redeye. Many of these new flights are already loaded in Delta.com.

The lack of Song expansion (except RSW) is notable. Many inside DL say that Grinstein isn't very fond of it and may kill it. One problem with Song is that the 757's are a little too big for many routes. For example, the redeye SAN-JFK that DL is launching is probably too thin to fill a Song 757.

I doubt DL will make any money on these new flights (except maybe SDQ), but it will sure aggravate JBLU. JBLU's margins have already been squeezed down in the past few months and it looks like DL might squeeze them more.
