What (nonstop) route do you wish Delta would really have?

But honestly, WOW's TATL service to secondary markets has been folding like a house of cards: CVG, CLE, DFW, STL.
CMH isn't getting TATL on DL or any other real airline anytime soon.

I don't think that DL will care at all about AC. The partnership with WS will be strengthening as 2019 goes by and one would think that DL would want to know what WS wants to do with that route. My guess is that within a a year or two, WS will be flying it with two or three class aircraft.

I wish DL would bring back JFK-PSA. This was such an easy and convenient way to Pisa and back. Now I'm flying all over the place, and getting back in one reasonable day from PSA is almost impossible.

It has to be on the way, especially with the WS JV. However, I'd think that DL would try it out on a smaller aircraft first (like the A319) and then upgauge it if it meets or exceeds their expectations. DL seems to have applied that philosophy fairly consistently as it has grown its hub in SEA. SEA-LAX started out as 3x CRJs daily.

What in the world do you mean by "real airline"?

I'm assuming he means that WOW or Norweigian might give it a try

That makes a lot of sense except for consideration of the politics involved in starting up a route to one of the partner airline's major city. I sort of think that a reconfigured WS 737 featuring a Maple Leaf will be there instead of a DL 319 with Stars and Stripes. When politics and nationalism get involved, rational thinking goes out the door.

ALB-ATL increased frequency to 4x or 5x daily, even if additions are Delta Connection

ALB to any connection out west (SLC, SEA, or even LAX)

And selfishly, DFW-IAH so that I can connect on AF, KL, and KE with a 30min flight

Sunday, June 9, Albany adds a 4th flight to Atlanta. Departures are now approximately 6 AM, noon, 3 PM, and 6 PM. The 3 PM is new and will be on a CR9

Are you sure it wasn't MEM-TUP-GTR-TCL-ATL? That would make more sense geographically.
