but Clark Howard said this was going to be great for ATL with WN launching evening more flights!!..........

(or cut the schedule in half and without a business/first class DL does not consider WN competition and does not compete with them....)

So, DL just won't fly any MD-88s from LGA.

The good news - and Delta's spin - is that this takes a relatively noisy aircraft away from some heavily populated areas. What they don't say is that they're still flying just as many noisy MD-88's and taking the noise to DAB, CHA, etc.
