Iím actually curious to see if DL would try IAD-AUS. Itís too bad that WN has a monopoly on DCA-AUS.

Still praying for a BHM-MSP.

Others that would help me (this is a wish thread after all):
BHM-RDU
BHM-ORD
BHM-JFK
BHM-MCO (daily)
BHM-MEM

lol. I have actually flown MEM-ATL-BHM but 99% of the time I'm driving this one.

Maybe we can get one of the Delta connection carriers to buy some PC12s?

Please CMH to either AMS or CDG before some one else jumps into the CMH TRANSATLANTIC market and shuts Delta out!

I flew MEM-TUP on NW in 2009. Fun little Saab-340 route.

SEA - YYZ for sure, except AC probably paid DL a lot to not think about it.

You must have missed the press release:

Delta will offer 22 daily flights between Atlanta and the LA Basin's four key airports, and more choices to access Delta's global network via its hub at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport​Long connected by their ties to the entertainment and production industries, Atlanta and the LA Basin will have more connections than ever when Delta launches twice-daily service from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to Hollywood Burbank Airport on July 8, 2019.

I know that this is a wishlist, but my god, BHM-MEM on the aforementioned PC12 is more likely than BHM-ORD

I can imagine DL would be concerned about diluting CVG/IND/DTW TATL services with a CMH route.

But honestly, WOW's TATL service to secondary markets has been folding like a house of cards: CVG, CLE, DFW, STL.

Does WOW even have any feeder agreements with any US airlines at all? I don't see how you can sustain profitable TALT service with purely O/D traffic from secondary cities (although I wouldn't call Dallas a secondary city, but they obviously face competition from AA there). This is especially true since folks still have to connect in Iceland... it's not even P2P.

Fixed it for you. WOW is doing so bad that they had to return planes and literally can't fly some of the routes they have published because they don't have one with the range required. They are doing so bad Iceland Air pulled out of buying them.
