Delta never flew JFK - DUS. Delta flies ATL - DUS

This is a route I could totally see once DL gets a few more of the A220's And if it does well enough, I'd expect an upgage to the new A321's.

AS and UA have RDU-SFO, and DL has RDU-LAX. I've been on all of those flights, and the loads seem to be pretty decent on the SFO flights, and the LAX flight seems to be always nearly full to full. I don't even remember getting an upgrade to first on that route (as a PM) in either direction.

RDU-LAX is scheduled as a 738 next week. RDU-SEA gets a 319. If LAX gets a 738, SJC isn't going to get a 321.

SEA-RDU is a 319 in the winter and gets upgauged to a 738 in the summer. DL has a hard time filling up planes in SEA in the winter.

Yeah, well, if they'd bring back BIL-SEA in anything besides a CRx, I'd be all over it. I think it was all OO CRJs last time they tried it. Marginally better than AS Dash-8s/Q400 (I don't care what they call them, props is props. I ain't flying them)

DL had a hard time filling up their planes on BIL-SEA too when they flew it. And AS continues to dominate SEA domestic O/D.

Would love to see one or more Delta TATL direct options from/to the southwest. Bring on AUS-AMS for 2019.

CDG or AMS are almost certain to happen. They’re not building that giant new SC for the current schedule, that’s for sure.

I'm hoping but not expecting AUS-ORD when that SC opens. I don't think they'll fight AA/UA/WN, then again I didn't think they'd do it on RDU and they're starting that on 175s in April after I wished for it here!!

While flying LAX-AUS last month, a FA living in Austin was mention AUS-AMS in 2019, fingers crosed.
